The Public folder was a feature in Dropbox that was later removed. It now exists only for users who've signed up before it was disabled.

It is probably because gmail uses long server polling to update itself and chrome shows that as an open connection and keeps spinning the 'loading' icon. We found this to happen with our apps too, in Chrome only, which use GWT and long server polling to do 'server push'.

Depends on what you mean: If you mean 3 minutes to stop the "full" browser loading, but just few seconds to actually get out of the loading screen into the regular gmail interface...
