Google Chrome is slow to localhost

For some reason Google Chrome is slow when I'm working against localhost. I had the same problem in Firefox 3.5 but I changed some IPv6 setting in about:config which fixed the issue. I think the same problem occurs in Google Chrome, but I can't find out how to fix it.

"Just an idea : do you have a line that looks like this :

::1 localhost

in your hosts (it should be somewhere like C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, if I remember correctly) file ?

If yes, comment that line by adding a # at the beginning.

This way, the only line that's about localhost should be

127.0.0.1 localhost

which is IPv4.

It might help, if your problem is really caused by IPv6."
