While the problem isn’t exclusive to Chrome, the vast majority of complaints concern it – though that could be to do with Google’s browser trouncing the opposition in terms of market share. The more people are served, the more likely the problem is to crop up.
All the same, users have reported a similar issue in Firefox and video app VLC too. That likely points to some drivers misbehaving, or a cocktail of software and hardware not playing nice, especially as the only reported OS that appears to be affected is Microsoft’s Windows 10.
Even with that pointer, the people on Google’s help forum appear to be well and truly flummoxed. Several solutions including turning off hardware acceleration, running Chrome cleanup, reinstalling Chrome and creating a new user have been suggested with mixed results.
