I use this plugin with a city lookup column containing more than 30000 items. This field is filter by a department column and the soap request returns 700 items.

With IE,  the form works but with Chrome, the form is not usable until two minutes.

30000 items is a lot of items. The way it works is that the page loads exactly as it would if there were no additional script on it. Then when you make the call to SPCascadeDropdowns, the script hs to process what's there and show the appropriate values. With a large number of values like you have, it can take a while.

In Chrome, SharePoint is going to render that dropdown as a plain old select, wheras in IE, it uses the complex dropdown, which sends the data to the browser in a different way.
