I am very rarely able to close Google Chrome on my Macbook Pro without force quitting the application. Is there a way to detect why this is happening?

Chrome sounds fairly buggy based on the many recent posts I've seen related to it :( –  ephsmith Jun 29 '12 at 21:17
    
Does it just take a long time? –  Mark Jun 29 '12 at 22:54
    
@Mark I'm not sure, it's possible, but after several minutes I usually force quit it. –  Chris Jun 30 '12 at 1:23
    
Do you have Warn Before Quitting turned on? If not, how many tabs do you usually have open? –  timothymh Jul 1 '12 at 2:08
    
@timothymh I do have that feature turned on and usually I have about 5-8 tabs open, one of them being Gmail. Usually I leave the browser on for days. I'm wondering if this has anything to do with flash. I notice that loading up flash on my mac is really laggy. –  Chris Jul 2 '12 at 1:34

Yes try checking in the Console application logs for a crash reporter log for Google Chrome.

Additionally I would try pulling the Preference files relating to Google Chrome to verify if there is a problem with corrupt preferences that Chrome is having trouble with.

What do you mean by "pulling the Preference files"? Do you mean delete them so that they are recreated? –  Chris Jun 30 '12 at 1:23

Sorry I mean move them to a temporary location so that you can restore them later if it turns out the issue continues with the files removed. This is so you don't loost any settings you may have set in Chrome. –  MrDaniel Jun 30 '12 at 2:12
