    In years past, I found that browsers based on the open source chromium project would either stall or freeze-up eventually on older computers with lower processing, cache, and memory. In the course of it gobbling up those limited resources (or whatever it was doing), it would likewise bog down the computer in general. Sometimes requiring a shut-down or restart to end the stagnation. That's the original reason I dropped Chrome, Dragon, Iron, and so forth on those PCs, for Firefox.

    But it's difficult to imagine them still doing that with the speedier or multiple-core processors and amount of RAM which desktops and laptops usually come equipped with on average in this decade.

    EDIT: Maybe Google will download a repair update soon that will fix the glitch.
