Please move if this is in the wrong place.
While Google Chrome and Shockwave behave better than in the past, I still have problems with it and seeking suggestions.
I have tried CoolNovo (formerly Chrome Plus) and suspect "regular" Chrome is more stable than CoolNovo and esp Chrome Canary.
Seems a factor of Shockwave crashing Chrome is failure to bounce the browser, too many tabs or both. Also, the more tabs with animation or videos like YouTube, the more risk.
