I really like Chrome, but Google has really effed it up in the latest version.
On my Mac, Chrome is autoquitting like crazy when I open a new tab. Not every time, but maybe a third of the time. It’s not crashing, because I’m not getting a crash report and Chrome doesn’t offer to reopen the tabs when it starts up again, but it’s like I hit Command-Q and shut Chrome down. It was making browsing a goddamn headache. Googled the symptoms and found out that it’s happening to a ton of people.
On my PC, Chrome is freezing my system up. The only way to fix it is to hold the power button and shut down. I was afraid I was having some kind of hardware failure, but then I Googled the symptoms and discovered, yes, it’s been doing that to a whole lot of other people, and for a while, too.
As far as I can tell, both problems have to do with Chrome’s implementation of Flash.
So I’ve gone back to Safari and IE10 for now. But Google needs to get it together.
