Google Chrome, ... Keeps Freezing My Phone...
sounds like a song in the making....
I've responded on different forums about this and yes...... Keeping it brief... Chrome on this phone flat out sucks. It freezes frequently even on some light browsing. Clearing cache and restarting your phone WILL help but only comes back. I've been using Opera beta and it's very stable and also functionally extremely close to Chrome. Just try it out. I've grown to like the Opera UI more also, but I don't mobile browse nearly as much anymore.
Chrome was also way more stable back on ICS.
If you haven't done a factory reset try that too. I did a factory reset about a month ago and the phone is way smoother now overall with chrome running better too so you can try that too.

I also hate Chrome, so I installed Opera (full version) last night. Very nice and quick. Time will tell. I disabled Chrome. Google should be ashamed of themselves.
One would think that they have better resources than app developers, but NOOOOOO...! Aren't they listening?
BTW... I tried other browsers but Opera works best on our phone.
Now, if only they upgraded the camera.
Chrome is such a substandard piece of garbage on Android and on the PC. It causes the entire OS to crash when a website in a tab stops responding. Can you imagine your entire computer BSODing when you open a tab? Can you imagine the iPhone crashing when you visit a website in Safari? It's ridiculous. Uninstall it permanently and use Opera.
The stability of my phone increased by infinity after uninstalling Chrome. i.e. It never crashed again.
Secret: The entire Android OS is of the same quality as Chrome. It's just barely running... A device with 20 times the power can barely run a browser as smoothly as the 3GS. It's just pathetic.

In my experience, users install multiple apps, then have background apps running constantly, app conflicts, memory bottlenecks, cache bloated, up etc. etc. etc. and when the phone freezes they wonder why. I don't like Chrome either, but my phone has never locked up because of it.
As for Iphones......hey, they're great for those that need to have it locked down to prevent the user from breaking them. Kind of like the new Mac Pro; looks like a Japanese garbage can, but hey...they're so 2008. Sorry for the Apple slam, but after comparing my core i7 HP laptop to an equivalently priced Mac Book Pro, I'll stick with Windows. Maybe if I were a PhD, an Apple would be necessary (that was meant as an insult).
