Why does Google Chrome crash so dang much!
It is almost painful how much it crashes. Despite it being developed by Google to be the supposed "best" or "most efficient" browser.
For me, it crashes anytime I am using something Flash-intensive. It crashes a lot if I try to play Flash games online. It also crashes on my website-login page at Bluehost.
It even crashes on Youtube a hell of a lot, causing me to have to refresh the page and re-download the video.
You would think that Google Chrome would at least work well with Youtube, seeing as how they are both owned and run by the same damn company.
Anyone else have these frustrations? I use Chrome because it loads pages faster than any other browser, but if I'm doing anything programming/Flash-intensive, it's worse than Firefox or even IE9 by far.

I would be looking at your operating system rather than Chrome. Perhaps there's some incompatibilities that's causing Chrome to crash. I use Chrome on YouTube all the time, flash games and I even login to Bluehost every now and then without it ever crashing.

I use Chrome on my Windows 7 computer. It crashes all the time, too. But so does IE. It seems like any browser on that computer crashes a lot. On my mac my browsers rarely crash, but it's an older mac, so video play-back is a bit slow and choppy. Time for an upgrade?

Apparently Google started having incompatibilities with Flash and lots of people report it crashes a lot. It's been a while and I haven't seen a solution yet.
Lots of people have reported problems lately.
Crashes - Google Chrome Help
For me, after a Windows Update, it stopped working. Whenever I started Google Chrome, it made the computer crash and I was forced to do a hard-reboot. I uninstalled Google Chrome and installed Firefox... until I hear it is fixed. Accidentally opening Google Chrome was such a big problem that I'm forced to keep it uninstalled.
I'm using Windows 7 64 bits. The rest of the computer works very well... except Kaspersky which also started causing high CPU usage problems.

MX beat me to it, but I agree that it sounds like a Flash related issue. Some recent Flash releases have been real POS.
FF4 is plenty fast for me, stable and mature. I really don't see a long term need for Chrome.

I don't think Chrome does very well with Vista 32 bit. I have the same operating system, and I was getting all sorts of hitch-ups happening and had to uninstall it. Vista's a bit idiosyncratic, if that's the nicest way to put it!

Their website offers downloads of the old browser, so I tried doing that, but it shows as corrupt.
So I downloaded Chrome. Not so sure I'm comfortable with the set-up, though, as it's quite a bit different from Netscape/Explorer/FF, which all were very similar. It's fast though. Lots faster than the FF 3.* was and than the brand new version.
ETA: The old version of FF got hung up a lot ('not responding') and the new version would take forever when clicking on different tabs or worse, closing a tab or a window. With Chrome, I haven't had any problems like that so far.

FWIW, Chrome started crashing on me a lot. I thought it might be malware, but scans from Malwarebytes, etc didn't find anything. Then used ccleaner to clear out temp files, etc, then uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome. Fine now.

Chrome has never crashed on my laptop before.
On my desktop, it just started recently crashing a lot, after I got a blue screen for the first time. Every time I switch tabs, the tab switched to would crash, and I would have to refresh it.
It could be a problem with your software. Try reinstalling chrome, flash, and java.
Oh, and the newest version of Firefox is faster than Chrome. a lot faster, actually. but I still prefer chrome more. Firefox beta may load pages faster, but the UI seems to be lagging behind.

Crashes for me as well....
Windows 7, fairly new PC, and LOTS OF CRASHES with CHROME!
I will do the uninstall and re-install and see if that helps.
(Nothing to do with Chrome) But I started using a 24 IN. HDTV/MONITOR for my PC and I can't configure Firefox to make all screens big enough to use.
Also, Firefox, IE, and Safari ALL CRASH with my flash intensive Online Games.
OK, I know, but I'm addicted to MONOPOLY from Pogo.
