    Google chrome keeps quitting after about 15-30 of use (but sometimes less).
    Appears random. Can't remember if anything changed when it started.
    Had version 13 beta, but downgraded to version 12 stable just to check if it was the beta. Still not working.
    Not got any plugins and disabled 'flags' (about:flags tab overview etc).
    Still crashing.

    Crash report says...

    AND more, but just say if you want more, it appears gobble to me.

    HELP PLEASE

    PS if anyone knows how i can migrate my history to another browser that would be helpful. Most browsers don't have import history from chrome. ]

    Thanks

    Go to user/Library/app/support/google folder and delete the google chrome support files and try again.

    Hold down command+option+shift and click on chrome to open, that will clear all preferences and see if it works then.

    Also how much RAM do you have installed, what Mac are you using? It seems as though perhaps the GeForce card/driver was causing the crash on the OP's mac. Are you running Lion as well and have you reset the PRAM since installing Lion? That might be worth a try.
