Google Chrome is definitely my favorite browser, but the last few days it was behaving quite strange. In fact, it was nearly impossible to use it anymore because it kept freezing on certain websites. I needed to close the browser and restart to make it go away, but it almost instantly froze again. Firefox did not have any problems.
After a while I finally found out why – all the sites it had problems with contained Flash, so this must be the cause of all misery for sure
Indeed, it seems that there were two versions of Flash installed, both enabled, which obviously deadlocked or something. The solution was to only enable only one, and disable the other one(s). To do that, start Chrome and go to chrome://plugins, and make sure only one Shockwave Flash instance is enabled:
After restarting Chrome, the issue was gone.
