Just updated to the latest nightly. At first glance, it seems snappier than the one I had been using. I have resisted checking out all the nightlys because the one that I was using was clasified as "stable". Since I not the type of user that needs to be on the bleeding edge of this ROM, I have been playing it safe. Maybe that is not the best plan.
Anyway thanks for everyone's help. I will be monitoring my apps to see if anything pops up as a rogue power hog.
One thing that I did notice is that Google Search and Google Now works fine with this ROM release unless I allow Google Search to update. If I install the latest version of Google Search, both Search and Now open and then quickly close making them impossible to use. Downgrading Google Search to the "factory" version brings back functionality.
