Isn't 12.0 something like quadruple-beta of the "Stable" version of Chrome?

I'm not entirely sure what you mean here. It's the current stable release

OP: For the record, I'm on Chrome 13 and I haven't noticed anything like you mentioned here. The graphical glitches make me think something is up with your video card or the drivers for it, but if it's only happening for LW...I'm not sure what to tell you.

Ahh, I guess it is. It's been a long time since I used Chrome, I thought they were around 8.0 or 9.0.

LW's front page freezes, hangs and bugs on Chrome

Browser is Chrome 12.0.742.122. It doesn't happen on Firefox. "It" is:

  • sometimes I can't click on links and eventually I get Chrome's "dead tab" notification
  • other times it keeps loading, even though while I wait for it to load I can go to, say, my user page and have it load right away
  • twice I've gotten weird graphical bugs on it. Screenshots: 1 2

To reiterate, it only happens on the front page, the one you get when you go to Other pages are fine. Perhaps it's the map?
