When Chrome crashes just because Google's down...

If you're a Google Chrome user and had your browser crash randomly for a couple of hours yesterday, you're not alone. It turns out that it was a problem with Google Sync, where bad code was sent back to the browser because of the service being down, resulting in it crashing entirely.

Fact of the matter is, Chrome shouldn't crash in an instance like this anyway, so hopefully they'll fix it. It was pretty annoying!
