I haven't seen that because I don't use it, but I've gotten used to needing to
reboot for something Chrome does to some part of KDE. Pre-Fedora 34 I'd get
about a month of uptime and Chrome would lock up everything on some trivial
action. I thought F34 would fix that, but it seems to have moved the weirdness
to somewhere else. Reboot tomorrow morning I guess... 70 days is doing pretty
well for KDE 4...
