    Have you tried clearing your cache and cookies? Have you tried reinstalling Chrome?

    Use a different browser.

    There is no need to change to another browser, unless the user wants to. Chrome is a good browser and doesn't crash unless there's a problem. The first step in troubleshooting is not to "throw the baby out with the bath water".

    I use it in incognito mode so nothing is cached but it seems that clearing it has worked for now thanks

    It was merely a suggestion.

    And Chrome doesn't exactly have the best privacy policy.

    The problem is still there, web pages keep crashing even though I have cleared everything, any other suggestions?

    Thanks

    Try SMC reset, PRAM reset and Repair Disk Permissions. Maybe that will help.

    Don't, it is a chrome issue that crops out every now and then, a quick google will inform you that the (google, not apple) developing team knows about this issues with macs & is working on it……although for some reason they refue to call it a "crash" :confused:

    This.

    I used to use Chrome exclusively until I started having random system hangs while using it. My rMBP would hang so badly I'd have to hard reset it.

    I started using the webkit nightly build and my system has now been rock solid. It's funny how a what is essentially a beta browser provides more stability than the polished product of Chrome.

    My $.02.
