I prefer to use Safari but I'm going into web design so I want to have a few browsers on my MacBook to view my work. When I try and open Chrome, it crashes on startup. This has been a problem since I upgraded to Mountain Lion. I have tried removing the application support and libraries and uninstalling but nothing has fixed this issue. Is their a fix for this crash? This crash is making Chrome unusable.

    Have you reinstalled Chrome? (probably a new version by now) – Mark Feb 28 '13 at 9:57
  • Could you create a new user account on the Mac and try to launch Google Chrome from there ? It will help to determine if the issue is within your usual user account or system-wide. – PEM8000 Feb 28 '13 at 11:12
  • I had an issue where Chrome crashed whenever I tried to install an extension (even after I deleted support files and reinstalled it), but it started working normally after I did an upgrade install of OS X from the recovery partition. If you don't want to do that, the 10.9 upgrade might fix it. – Lri Feb 28 '13 at 11:41
  • @PEM8000 I enabled the Guest account. It still crashes on a different user account. – actcheon Mar 3 '13 at 1:35
  • this is happening to me as well... and removing the app and reinstalling doesn't work either – 太極者無極而生 Aug 28 '13 at 9:16
