Laggy Chrome animations on Windows 8.

So yea, I have a Windows 8 laptop with an Ivy Bridge Core i5 and an AMD Radeon 7730M GPU, so it basically powers through most things I throw at it.

The problem is that Chrome animations are never really as smooth as I have seen on systems running Mac. If a site has a responsive design, resizing the window results in choppiness within the window.

What's the deal?

Even Metro style apps are really slow in contacting the internet. Whenever I open the Windows Marketplace, it takes about 2 minutes to load, same goes for Metro apps using internet, though desktop apps are quite responsive.
