Maybe I need to flash all the zip? which zip? extras.zip or extras_upgrade.

Edit: I flashed extras.zip and now it works. Thanks.

You gotta flash the extra.zip, not the extras_upgrade.zip. and try wipe Dalvik Cache also after flashing!
The former is for complete clean installation while the latter is for upgrading, let say from SlimBean RC1 to RC2.
Or you can simply flash the AIO add-on, where AIO stands for all in one!

I just keep the extracted email.apk and the exchange2.apk files on my ext sdcard (I extracted them form the AIO add on zip) . move them to the /system folder and change the permissions read on all three and write on the top one

then you can just execute the apk file while it is in the system folder and it will install OR you can just reboot

I installed this on my N7100 yesterday - did a full wipe/reset beforehand and then used CWM recovery to install slim bean followed by the gapps.

Couple of issues;
1)Chrome keeps freezing and crashing when I try edit text in the address or search bar
2)Stock browser occasionally just stops loading webpages. Responds to inputs/etc, but just doesn't load pages
3)A lot of apps run quite choppily when scrolling, stuff like Huff Post, Daily Mail, hotukdeals - all of these ran fine on stock 4.1.1

Any suggestions? Love the ROM other than that but having iffy browsing and poor app performance is kind of a deal breaker

Nope! Stock Note 2, rooted using exynosabuse, installed cwm using Odin, did an efs backup, backed up using cwm, did a full wipe (including dalvik) and installed slim bean and the slim gapps! All apps added after were added manually using the market and one-by-one

I think this is Chrome, not the ROM. I'm currently playing around with another 4.2.1 rom and I get exactly the same thing with Chrome.

erm... there are loads of stuff you can try!
For example,
1. tune your minfree value with the system tuner which can be download from market
2. flash another kernel over the one built by mnazim. (The one built by mnazim is good enough for daily use, but i just wanna have scoobydoo sounds for better audio experience. so i flash Redpill kernel) and you can tweak the cpu settings for more demanding tasks

Personally, i at times play dead trigger on my note 2 and so far no lagging at all!

Why would the minfree value have a noticeable effect on a phone like the Note 2? And I don't think I need a different kernel to use quite lightweight apps without choppiness, there's obviously something wrong that shouldn't be.

yup, i agree. so that's why i am saying i have VERY GOOD performance esp. while playing heavy game!
did you have a clean installation first of all? might be you gotta give mnazim a logcat of what's wrong so he will then be able to figure out what's wrong.
