    Hey guys,

    I started experiencing a really strange problem with chrome randomly last night. It wasn't after installing or changing anything, it just started happening out of the blue. I'll try to describe it as best I can.

    To put it shortly: when visiting a website, the tab because unresponsive (loading wheel spins and spins until the "kill page or wait" popup comes up). while this is "loading" I can't close the tab or open other tabs. it doesn't seem to be any particular website, it's happening with facebook, reddit, gq.com, and many more. I have to force quit to get out of chrome.

    Here's what the console shows, I don't know what any of this means but that "semicolon error" might have something to do with it: http://i.imgur.com/DObibyL.png

    Not sure if it's related, but I also started getting an error that google drive couldn't launch right when the chrome problem started. Here's what the console was showing, although reinstalling google drive has fixed this problem: http://i.imgur.com/q5Iq6io.png


    THINGS I'VE TRIED:
    - restarting my macbook
    - repairing disk permissions
    - deleting chrome and any associated files with CleanMyMac, restarting, redownloading chrome, and reinstalling


    Well, I think that's it. Any ideas?

    Looks like others here had success removing different plugins from "/Library/Internet Plug-Ins".

    Thanks for the link. I've tried deleting plugins from the "Contextual Menu Items" and "Internet Plugins" folders but Chrome is still freezing up.
