    Hello,
    I'm running Parallels on a new MacBook Pro M1, and have a MacOS 12 Monterey VM running successfully. The Safari browser works great in the Mac VM, but when I try running the Apple Silicon version of Chrome or Edge, it's so slow as to be unusable. There is a 4-5 second delay even typing letters on the keyboard. I opened a ticket with Parallels but they just told me to make sure I have the latest Parallels Tools installed, which I have done.

    Has anyone else run into this problem? I use VMs for browser based software demos and Safari doesn't have the best look and feel for our software. In the meantime I'm using a Windows 11 Insider Preview VM which is working fine, but isn't a long term solution.

    Thanks for any insight or recommendations.

    Yes, having issues with both Chrome browser and Edge browser not rending properly and very sluggish. I'm trying to trouble shoot now but finding Firefox works fine.
