Chrome update breaks Head-Fi...

    I'm back to using IE/FF after the last Chrome self update.  On three PCs Head-Fi stalls and the kill page comes up.  Disabling Jscript "fixes" it but breaks being able to use menus.  Fun fun.  Obviously a Chrome thing, but thought it worth noting.

    All these Chrome <-> Head-Fi issues are not great news

    Solude, can you give me some specific steps that lead to a problem for you, so that I can recreate it and document it?

    I'm not having any of these problems, but I can't say that I've been keeping up with Chrome updates. Occasionally the menus don't drop for me, but it's an F5 away.

    Any page can hang.  And I do mean any.  Front page, forum list, inbox will just freeze pretty much within seconds until Chrome asks to kill the page.  Happening on my home W7 AMD rig, work XP Core2 rig and XP laptop.  If I disable Jscript its fine, except that buttons don't work.

    I was getting 'slow script' warnings on Safari for the last two days. Which only ever happens when I disable java/javascript. But everything was enabled. It's stopped now, but page loading is still a bit sluggish on this site.

    Should add, FF is very fast on Head-Fi and IE never gives any errors on posting or odd overlay positioning.  Chrome had issues before this, but now its a full on halt.

    I use Chrome here everyday and have not noticed any problems above and beyond normal. I haven't updated manually either, but according to Google it should do this automatically.

    So far so good on the last Chrome update.

    I'm still getting chrome issues.  Usually it was something regarding a script taking up too much memory, but I stopped loading the site on chrome after it completely crashed the browser this morning.  System has 2gb of RAM, so it's not like I'm not equipped for web browsing.
    Even on IE, when loading this thread, i got this:
    Webpage error details
    User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)
