As said earlier, Google Chrome debuted first on Windows, and since then, it has been the favorite for many. Chrome clearly held its lead over the years in functionality (as well as bugs and crashes). Let’s look at how we can fix these (or at the least, try to).

Fix Chrome Page Unresponsive Issue

Lucky for us, there are quite a few varieties of crashes and errors with the Google Chrome browser. Let’s look at the solution for each of them in detail.

Page unresponsive box

You might see this error when a particular webpage or set of pages causes a problem.

Select one or more web pages (or all of them), and click on Kill. This will force stop these webpages (or kill them, according to Google). You can then reload the webpages. If the error persists, we recommend that you restart the browser (or maybe your device).

Hanging Tabs

When a tab hangs on Google Chrome, it appears as a stuck white page. The affected page will be titled Loading, and it will have a spinning icon. The issue usually means that there’s a rendering issue with the webpage. Opening a new tab or switching to another page might help the affected page to load as usual. If this doesn’t help, try restarting Chrome or your device.

“Aw, Snap” Error

This one happens when a webpage doesn’t display as expected.

You can try reloading the page to dismiss this error (it should work for most cases). But, if the message pops up again, try closing other running webpages (or as usual try restarting Chrome or your device).

Now, those were some easy yet effective fixes recommended by Google. Let’s look at some more in-depth methods that could help you get over this.
