Description (last modified by kzar)


Windows 10
Chrome 52.0.2743.82 m (64-bit)
ABP 1.12.1 (& AdBlock 3.1)
Only EasyList enabled

How to reproduce

  1. In Chrome Settings, set the default search engine to Bing
  2. Open a new tab

Observed behaviour

The content on the new tab will take a few seconds to render.

There are several iframes (16 in my testing) on the new tab that get loaded, each requiring the hiding style sheet.

Expected behaviour

With ABP disabled, the content on the new tab takes less than a second to render


Since there are currently no ads on the 'Bing' new tab page, the following filter will improve the render time on the new tab


We were notified by Microsoft of the performance degradation.
