    Hello guys, my 2010 MBP has been having some really weird things happen when using Google Chrome (only noticing it when using Chrome). Anyone else have this problem?

    Since Chrome uses WebGL to tap your graphics card for rendering power it could very well be a VRAM issue. One way to investigate:

    Type about:flags in the address bar.
    There are two main settings you will want to experiment with: WebGL and GPU Compositing. Try disabling one or both of these and seeing what happens.

    Theoretically GPU issues should surface in Safari and other apps that require the GPU as well. Strange that it's only manifesting in one app.

    WebGL is already disabled [default]

    & do you mean;

    GPU compositing on all pages Mac, Windows, Linux: set on default.

    I saw it happening on iTunes as well, though it was really small. Not of a huge visual as show on the SS of Chrome.
