OS X Chrome - will it ever be smooth?

One of the biggest pains in using my Air right now is that Chrome is soooo much worse than Safari when it comes to smoothness it's really not funny anymore.

I use chrome because of UI, add-ons, syncing capabilities (my phone is a nexus 4), I really don't want to use Safari. But man is that smooth. Everything from zooming to panning is multiple levels of better.

Do you know why Chrome is that much worse than Safari when it comes to this? And do you think Google will fix this/ can fix this in the next updates?
