    I can confirm it is running smoothly at 1080p60 with IE11.

    Device: Surface 2 (Windows 8.1 RT 32 bit), CPU load: 7-15% @500 MHz core clock.

    Yeap that's what I love about IE11, very low cpu usage and does the same thing as chrome! IE also uses less RAM.

    So I've done some experimenting and I think the problem may just be Chrome in general.

    On my Surface Pro 3, I was able to do 1080p 60FPS gameplay on both IE and Chrome (also, anyone who says you can't do it in IE is lying to themselves). However, on my sister's Dell POS laptop, I was able to get 1080p 60fps in IE, but not Chrome, AND I noticed that her CPU and RAM usage were at 90% and made the fan freak out.

    The only conclusion that I can draw is that Chrome is too poorly optimized and just uses too many resources for your hardware so the OP will have to a) use IE for 60fps videos, or b) upgrade your hardware. Personally, I suggest just deleting Chrome until Google learns how to make a browser.

    Woah, there. Hold up.

    The Pursuit of 60fps Everywhere with Nat Duca:

    The Google Chrome team is arguably one of the best teams a browser is backed by, and there goal is to ensure a smoother and faster web viewing experience.

    Google Chrome, for me and tons of other people around me, has always worked more reliably and much more responsively than Internet Explorer has.

    Just because of a few select cases where Chrome doesn't work on antiquated hardware, you can't deduce that Chrome isn't a proper browser.

    My sister's Dell is 1 year old and cost $500. Is that antiquated? Although, if their Android strategy is any indication, middle range hardware from a year ago is antiquated.

    If their job is for a smoother and faster web experience, they're definitely failing badly. Zooming in Chrome is not almost unusable (and I dare you to say that zooming is a "select case") https://code.google.com/p/chromium/i...0OS%20Modified , it takes way more resources compared to IE, and don't even get me started on how long it took them to include Hi-DPI support.

    "Google Chrome for me.... has always worked more reliably" anecdotal, but it's the only part of your quote that I can say is probably.

    Please spare us the apologist speech. Thanks.

    When I talked about antiquated specifications I was referring to the OP's set up, not your sisters.

    Zooming in ain't exactly a smooth sail on Internet Explorer either, last I checked.

    Maybe the resources consumed are extra, but I would like to think that it's because Chrome runs smoother in the tab switching, page loading, and various other transitions.

    Nonetheless Internet Explorer will likely work better for "some" people because of the fact that it comes preloaded on Windows and caters to your respective setup. Chrome as a 3rd party app can't do the same, but on PCs/laptops where it works, it works flawlessly, most the times.

    In addition to that, Chrome OS, an is built around the browser, according to experts works faster on lower end hardware than Windows so if Google didn't know how to make a proper browser wouldn't Chrome OS be a laggy mess?

    Thats also the goal of the IE team. However the Chrome team is failing badly in several areas, when it comes to performance.

    1080p 60fps on desktop and in touch with ie without any problems.
    Runs smooth on my Lenovo Yoga 2 10" windows tablet with an Z3745 CPU.
    Is a x32 version of windows but it runs very good.

    I have the same problem with chrome and I also have it with 4k video too. IE has lower cpu usage. My guess is the chrome is not using hardware acceleration even though it is enable. If you disable hardware acceleration in IE ( Internet Options> Advanced> Use software rendering instead if GPU rendering) you get similar CPU usage to chrome. So I would say that chrome has a bug with hardware acceleration. Google NEEDS to fix this.

    i5 5200U
    4GB Ram

    60fps videos only run on chrome. I'm sorry but your hardware cannot handle it I'm afraid. Please remember you need to be running on the video on at least 720p for 60fps
    Sorry but you're wrong. I can watch 720p60 videos on youtube perfectly fine, with no problems. If I try to watch one on google chrome it's unwatchable.

    I tried in my Laptop but I haven't be able to play 60fps in IE and it works only in Chrome.
    Attachment 87361Attachment 87362

    and I haven't face any problem with Chrome as OP. It's buttery smooth in my low specs lappy.
    I think OP have install some addons in chrome which may be the reason for that.
    You need Windows 8, 8.1 and above to play 60fps in IE. IE in Windows 7 version is not supported.

    sorry for late reply but i confirm, tested with my old ring win 8.1 64bit with 2gb of ram (667) amd athlon 5400 x2 64 2.8 and a 9600gt 512ram and yeah even in late 2015 ie11 can play 1080p 60 smooth while chrome stuttering even on 1080p 30fps.

    The same on my gaming pc and my i3 4gb ram and radeon gpu laptop.

    The gaming pc Q6600 8gb of ram and r9 270x gpu which runs gta v on almost max smoothly can't handle 60 fps smoothly on chrome and runs them perfectly fine on IE11 and Microsoft Edge.
    The only reason i don't use Edge(now that addons are available) is the reason I can't drag text to search it.

    since 2 years ago microsoft's browser is just waaay faster smoother and better.
    besides I got an error yesterday that my 8gb ram computer just "Ran out of ram" with only 2 instances of chrome running(2 accounts about 6 tabs total)
    That is just crazy!

    my friends with 2-4 gb of ram used to run 30+ tabs on chrome!

    Maybe google and the RAM manufacturers are in a deal haha...

    Highlight Text > Right Click > Ask Cortana

    and it is even faster than dragging:)

    Just to add: yes Chrome consume more resources than my fat mother in law! Not a Google fan, neither a Microsoft one.

    Love Edge speed but is useless for my needs
