Google Chrome keeps crashing – how to fix it

There are always great improvements in all available browsers, especially Microsoft Edge. However, Google Chrome remains the most used browser in the world. Even if it works very well most of the time, some users had trouble saying that Google Chrome kept crashing. You can try the following methods to fix common incidents and greatly improve your browsing experience with Chrome.

Extensions and Add-ons

These are very useful, but Chrome often becomes unstable due to a number of browser extensions, plug-ins, or add-ons. While this is not a very satisfactory solution, keeping only Add-ons 2-3 in the Chrome browser can significantly reduce the frequency of Chrome crashes. Try to reduce the number of add-ons and add-ons you are currently using and you will certainly notice the change.

Disable conflicting modules in Chrome

We are now talking about a module which is a key component of any application. It contains a chain of programming procedures necessary to run the applications. If these modules cause problems, Chrome crashes. To identify these problems, type chrome: // conflicts in the address bar. The browser will then load all the modules and also identify the faulty modules, which will allow you to deactivate them. It will also mention the problematic application or extension as well as the modules.

Therefore, it is best to uninstall or remove such conflicts from your system using the "Add or Remove Programs" function in "Control Panel". Likewise, you can uninstall the conflicting extensions from Google Chrome.

Correct the data in the Chrome user profile

There are many reasons why Google Chrome user profile data can be altered. Chrome must be closed before closing Windows because it must save the data in the user profile. If Chrome fails to update the user profile due to an unexpected shutdown, it can damage or corrupt the unsaved data, which ultimately causes a problem. To resolve this issue, open File Explorer and check the hidden items checkbox on the View tab. Close Chrome if it is open, then access the Chrome user's profile folder by following the following directory:

C: Users Your account AppData Local Google Chrome User Data (Your account represents the name of your Microsoft account)

Right-click 'Rename' the 'Default' folder for a name like Default_1, Default_bkup, etc. That's all. Test it by reopening your browser.

Temporarily disable sandbox security

Chrome runs a security tool called Sandbox that protects the rendering of HTML and JavaScript from malicious programs. It creates a controlled and restricted environment around Chrome to protect your operating system from damage. Disabling the Sandbox feature has worked for some people, but most people don't recommend it. Right click on the Chrome icon and open "Properties" to make changes. Under the Shortcut tab, you will see a path typed in a "Target" box. Press space at the end of the text, just add -no-sandbox and click OK.

Clear history, cookies and other browsing data

A simple and common solution is to frequently clean up the navigation data stored in Chrome. Open the Chrome menu by clicking on the hamburger button or on the three line icon at the top right of the browser, then open "Settings". At the bottom of the Settings page, click on "Show advanced settings" and under the Privacy header, first click on "Content settings". Then, under the Cookies header, select the option "Keep local data only until you leave your browser", then click OK. This allows Chrome to automatically delete cookies.

Second, click on "Clear browsing data" which is right next to "Content settings" and select all options except "Passwords". This keeps you connected to your websites or social media accounts.
