After Google Chrome another update on some or all pages started appearing browser error: Aw, Snap! Google Chrome ran out of memory while trying to display this web page.

Most people here are clueless and wasting our time with stupid solutions that none works. The problem is not how to get around with some medicine man as a workaround, I can refresh the page and I am OK for a while. The PROBLEM IS TO FIX IT at the root of the software. And that’s for Google to address this bug.
They provide workaround so you move on, They don’t provide solution as a fix.
This is a Chrome bug and Google has to fix it.
I have 8 GB of memory that is plenty for Chrome to dynamically ask and get more memory if it needs some more but it fails to do so.
I like Novuses comment. I have many users and am getting tired of band aiding all the problems we’re having. We still have printing problems within chrome from more than a year ago, black blocky screens when changing tabs, and these aww snap messages. Chrome is getting so complex, it’s starting to fail in its’ basic uses.
