When i apply the recent update to Google Chrome (mac) the browser keeps crashing..

If your browser user profile is corrupted, you can create a new user profile to replace the broken one:

  1. Exit Google Chrome completely.
  2. Windows: Go to the Start menu > Run.

    Mac: Go to the Go menu > Go to Folder.

  3. Enter one of the following directories in the text field, then press OK.


    • Windows XP: %USERPROFILE%Local SettingsApplication DataGoogleChromeUser Data
    • Windows Vista and Windows 7:%LOCALAPPDATA%GoogleChromeUser Data

    Mac OS X~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default


  4. Locate the folder called “Default” in the directory window that opens and rename it as “Backup default.”

Try opening Google Chrome again. A new “Default” folder is automatically created as you start using the browser. You can transfer your old browser information to your new user profile; however, we recommend against doing so since a part of your old profile was corrupt. You can transfer your old bookmarks to your new user profile by copying the “Bookmarks.bak” file from the “Backup default” folder to your new “Default” folder.
