Yes, Chrome is crashing every two minutes or so for me as well. I think it has to do with Gmail being open in one tab while Gmail is down.

This is very bad.

Wha ... how ... why would browser performance be coupled to performance of one particular site? Firefox, Opera, even IE don't crash when they're offline and unable to connect to any site.

I don't think it's Gmail, I think it's the Sync service that is causing crashes.

Probably - no problems with Chrome here, no sync enabled, no GMail tabs open (using GMail in my standalone client only)

Yeah, I have sync enabled and using the official Gmail extension. I crashed several times not long ago.
