Wow....... been super busy, hadn't heard a word about this. I don't use Google or Chrome so wasn't affected the short time I had online yesterday. Actually though...... it sounds kinda scary to me. One of the reasons I don't trust "the cloud" is/was just this sort of thing happening. I know, I know........ I'm in the distinct minority on that subject so I'll just hush.

You are not the only one! I feel the same way about "the cloud".

I was one of those users of Chrome and G mail who was down yesterday.
So I shut my pc off and went to the driving range to chip and putted for an hour.

I am in the same group as those above by not being a Cloud user.

Reading the article Brink referenced, this sounds like a issue that only affected people using Google Sync. As I interpret that people that sync bookmarks, etc. In any case Gmail is still the most dependable free email on the planet.

Lucky, I did switch to Opera and give it go, otherwise I may have noticed the crash since Google Chrome was my primary browser.
