latest chromium-browser using high cpu on any page

Hi,

I agree that it should be easier to turn off touchpad clicks. I usually
turn off the whole touchpad, if there is a mouse. So I install

touchpad-indicator

(if it is well implemented in the version I use) or a simple script
function, that I add to .bashrc and use TT to toggle the touchpad ON/OFF

-----
alias TT='touchpad-toggle'

###

function touchpad-toggle {

# toggle synaptic touchpad on/off

# get current state
SYNSTATE=$(synclient -l | grep TouchpadOff | awk '{ print $3 }')

# change to other state
if [ $SYNSTATE = 0 ]; then
    synclient touchpadoff=1
    echo "touchpad OFF"
elif [ $SYNSTATE = 1 ]; then
    synclient touchpadoff=0
    echo "touchpad ON"
else
    echo "Couldn't get touchpad status from synclient"
    exit 1
fi
}

####

alias TT
-----

Best regards
Nio
