Things seem improved with that generally in Android overall, and it seems to recover a bit faster in Chrome than without.
Easiest way to reproduce the issue: scroll down and try to tap edit post before the xda thread completes loading. It'll hang everything and usually end up bringing up keyboard on the search at the top or open the page list or something stupid. I know part of this is obviously Chrome and Google Keyboard being stupid, and xda's latest forum template being bugged, but r88-89 definitely handle it worse than r87 or r90. r90 with the mentioned tweak seems best overall.
