Anyone noticed an increased tendency for Chrome to hang since one of the recent updates?
This used to be rare in the extreme, but lately I've seen it several times, on several different websites. The symptom is that the page does not load fully load, and appears still to be waiting for something (little circle going round and round).
Then all tabs but the currently active one disappear, and you get a message along the top, saying Chrome is not responding. It doesn't resolve itself with patience, and eventually you get a Windows prompt, asking if you'd like to close the unresponsive program - which is the only way out (unless you open Task Manager and kill it manually).
When you restart Chrome, it does at least recognize that it exited abnormally, and allow you to reload the previously opened tabs, which means you don't have to find everything again from scratch. But it's still pretty annoying, even though it remembers where you were.
I'm on v. 32.0.1700.107 m. I think that update came out about a week ago.
