    2013 MBA heating up while running Chrome browser
    I have a 2013 MBA core i7, 8gb ram. Whenever I use chrome to surf the web my computer gets really hot. But when I use safari, the computer gets much cooler. What seems to be the problem with chrome?

    This is kind of like saying..."When I poke myself in the eye with a sharp stick...it hurts!". If it hurts...then stop doing it!

    Same thing with what you describe. If your MBA heats up using Chrome...then stop using Chrome...and continue to use Safari!

    As far as there being a problem with Chrome. No outstanding/common issues mentioned here from members.
