Perhaps Qualcomm will be important in the future but as far as I can see most ARM Chromebook computers use Mediatek or Rockchip. And until recently Mediatek processors were mostly A53 cores which is not a route to competitive performance in a browser. And Rockchip has been even more pathetic. Recently they both seem to have upped their game a bit but Intel have little to worry about till ARM Chromebook starts to mean something a bit better than that lot.
