Google Chrome memory crashes persist after v105 update

Google Chrome is one of the most popular chromium-based browsers in the world. It is available on various operating systems like Android, Windows, macOS, Linux and more.

But like every other modern platform, it is not immune to bugs and issues that can hamper the end-user experience.

Google Chrome out of memory crashes

Many Google Chrome users (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, seven, 8) report that the “out of memory” crashes that started with v104 continue to bother them even after the latest v105 update.

It looks like Chrome keeps randomly closing and reopening various tabs on its own. According to a member of the project on Chromium Issue Trackera crash occurs when the browser uses more than 2 GB of RAM.

As the problem is related to Chromium itself, it is possible that crashing issues are also prevalent for other Chromium-based browsers like Microsoft Edge.

Note that Firefox (which is not Chromium based) seems to work fine.

Potential workaround

As the crashing issues started after v104 of Google Chrome, downgrading to an older version (preferably v103) should fix the issue.

According to a concerned user, Google Chrome stopped crashing after uninstalling and reinstalling the browser.

I managed to fix it by renaming the .exe. A few days later, every tab I opened automatically went to the “crash” page. I was able to fix this problem by uninstalling, reinstalling and renaming chrome. The problem is that it recurs every other day, and the only way to fix it is to completely reinstall it and rename it.

It seems the devs are also aware of the issue as they marked it as ‘awarded‘ on the issue tracker.

Worse still, Chrome beta testers have reported such crashing issues in the v106 beta and v107 Canary also built.

Nevertheless, we will keep an eye on further developments and update the article accordingly.
