I've seen a surprising amount of posts on Chrome-related crashes. Just wonder what proportion of you are we talking about. Luckily I'm not getting any.

This issue is now on the front page (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1395882) so wondering how many more of you it's affecting.

I've been literally caning Chrome (with flash) for over a week and no hint of kernel panics/freezing.

I've currently got over 30 chrome tabs open across four desktops, use it ten hours a day for work, hasn't crashed since I purchased it.

Love the Macbook Air, love Chrome.

Ok I need to take my vote back, just had 2 Youtube+Chrome back-to-back crashes. Complete freeze.

There are known issues, you can follow them here:

http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=133885

It look's like they have confirmed its actually an issue with flash itself, not chrome.

I tried to use Safari the first few days I got my MBA but I couldn't stand it so now I'm using Chrome and I haven't had any problems so far. Will report back if I do.
