According to a source, Google’s desktop browser Chrome 90 is crashing for some of its Windows 10 users worldwide. Google launched Chrome 90 on May 10, 2021, with an array of new features like an AV1 encoder, Copy link to highlight, PDF viewer, lite mode, and much more. However, soon after the launch, Windows 10 users began reporting on different platforms that their Chrome 90 browser has crashed. According to a user on Reddit,
Google Chrome stopped working for me. My extensions crashed and all pages (including Chrome pages like settings) refuse to load. The screen is completely blank, and the tab is simply labeled “Untitled” with a frowning folder next to it.
