    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 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.

    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.
