Everytime I use open.spotify.com on Chrome it immediately lags my computer up and causes framerate issues in games/videos and even on the desktop, my cursor freezes every couple of seconds. It's not because of hardware acceleration, I tried without it and the same result happens.
Once I close the spotify tab the computer immediately returns to normal so there's definately something going on between Chrome and Spotify. I tested the web player on Firefox (with the same extensions and hardware acceleration) and there is no issue with Firefox.
