    I have my own thoughts, and ...I am not impressed by this feature. What problems are lurking in the Chrome/Chromium browsers that they foist this kind of behavior back at the user.

    Your thoughts please!

    Tx,

    When a user gets 100's of "Aw, Snap!" occurrences throughout the day running Chromium - it is clear that there is a serious stability problem going on inside the Chromium browser when it tries to display a webpage - so, what's the problem(s) that Chromium has that Firefox never ever gets, eh?

    I use Chromium a lot on Ubuntu and rarely see the 'Aw, Snap!' page. I'm guessing your problem is localised to your platform.

    Only 32 bit Chrome; not 32 bit Chromium.

    They should make the Aw, Snap! page customizable and let users enter their own preferred words.

    I have not seen this tab for years, so I would say, it is more related to bad extensions or settings or internet or whatever. :)

    "Aw, Snap!" occurs when the process for a tab crashes. These needs to be reported to Chromium devs, even better if you can also submit a crash report. If starting Chromium from the command line, there could be a stack dump in the console, this also may help as part of the bug report.

    Hi gorhill,

    Thx for replying!

    It looks like crash reporting is unavailable in Chromium. I found the web page Chromium/Debugging on the Ubuntu/Wiki at: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Chromium/Debugging that looks like it will give me enough to go on for now and try to provide some debugging information to the developers.

    Well i think that if the "aw snap" page is occuring so frequently in your google chrome installation that it becomes unbearable and creates a huge issue for users then a change of browser may be in order.

    One look at the bug reports issued for the Chromium-browser yield sufficient evidence that "Aw, Snap!" bug reports are very common. The best idea is to try an help with the eradication of the defects if at all possible.

    I do switch to Firefox to the extent that what I am working on can be accommodated until one or another extension interferes. Firefox has proven to be less annoying than Chromium, but not totally foolproof.
