    What's wrong with Chrome browser for OSX? I'm using MBPr with latest OSX.

    -Youtube videos stop half way
    -Sound doesn't work sometimes until reboot

    Safari works fine all the time. But I prefer to use Chrome. Are there any fixes?

    Just did. Didn't change anything.

    This is frustrating, any other clues? Flash is updated.

    YouTube works fine for me, but about two months ago, it started hanging when loading pages. Sometimes I have to Force Quit it. This problem occurs on both my 2012 MBA (Mountain Lion) and 2008 iMac (Snow Leopard).

    Until Google pushes a stable update, I've gone back to Safari as my main browser.

    Maybe try completely uninstalling Chrome and then reinstalling. Quit Chrome. Then trash Chrome-related preference and support files. Get rid of com.google.Chrome.plist in ~/Library/Preferences. Get rid of the Chrome folder in ~/Application Support/Google. Get rid of any Chrome extensions.

    Then trash the Chrome application, empty the trash and reinstall. And hope.

    i still have the problem with my display turning off while using chrome on a macbook air. i would have to restart the machine to get my screen back. reports said it was chrome's fault, but i didn't believe them because it seemed too weird for a browser to have a bug like that. finally i got sick of it and deleted chrome. no more blackouts so far.

    anyone know the solution? it's not reinstall chrome fyi.

    I've had that happen to me before too. No clue if Chrome is even responsible. Doesn't happen often though
