Title and picture literally says it all, I probably have about 6 flash sites open and Chrome crashes when I'm in the middle of clicking on a link or most likely trying to talk to my homies on TinyChat. Easy way yes, is to close the sites, but some of them I do need open (almost all the time). Is there anyway I can stop Chrome from crashing when I have all these flash sites open?

Mine crashes if I have about 20-30 flash tabs open. I think it's more down to hardware then then Chrome itself.

Flash and Chrome have always been a bit at odds. Take a squizz at HTG's guide

Yeah, I disabled "pepper flash" the new flash inside Chrome that's causing people's problems but it still doesn't work. If I use Explorer or Firefox doing the same thing, they don't crash.

Thats technically not a chrome crash and happens to me at times just opening one flash or video tab as much as opening a half dozzen ..

as far as I can tell it has to do with the method used to imbed the video because if you go to utube the crashing dont happen , the biggest culprate is facebook I get these crashes trying to veiw videos from facebook and they happen a lot more often on the windows machine which has most plugins disabled then it does on linux .. all tabs dont crash just the ones dependent on java and flash and has only been happening since chromes last update ..

one thing we found that helped not sure if many know this if you had choise to join the HTML5 group in there test on utube you made need to go back and select to see video using HTML5 again what we found here is after we cleared our cookies we had to go make opt in, check this even if you didnt clear cookies maybe you got a new Hard drive or new computer what ever ..

Yeah, but as you said not all videos on YouTube are capable of doing HTML5. If they were, I would change.

Chrome is not, but flash is always suppose to crash, or so it seems, so it just took chrome with it.
