Chromium crash on Arch Linux with this message: http://pastebin.com/f9JMsPzT

    terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::out_of_range'
      what():  bitset::set
    [1]    4934 abort (core dumped)  chromium
singing out of sync for now..

Edit: no crashes since I signed out of sync

Edit2: found a more complete stack trace by somebody else: https://gist.github.com/4251938

Bug Report: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=165171

Chrome also starting crashing 30-or-so minutes ago, on a OS X 10.8.1, Chrome version 23.0.1271.95. I just had my Facebook account open in that window, but it continued crashing by itself after 5 minutes. GMail doesn't work , too, from neither FF nor Chrome, it does though from my iPhone (different web provider, I wonder if that counts).

Same here. Windows 8.

Wow, a lot of people use Chromium over Chrome because of "omg botnet" - I wonder why Google downtime would cause vanilla Chromium to crash?

I thought Chromium still had all the google tie-in issue. If I remember correctly what they pulled out was license encumbered features like font rendering. I know there were forks like iron that pull out the privacy features.

They do? I thought they just disliked undebuggable proprietary plugins.

Google services use SPDY connections. I wonder if it has a bug in its implementation... not many sites use the protocl.

Yes Chromium without sync works fine for me too.

edit: Gmail works fine for me in Denmark, maybe it is only a regional outage?

It was general for gtalk. I was chatting with my girlfriend in Paris and I'm in Montreal right know. Both gtalk stopped working and we finish the discussion on Skype.

my @gmail.com worked but my apps account on a different domain kept crashing. Both accessed from Denmark but with english as the language.

Interestingly the bug links to 163267, which is marked private (i.e. a security issue). I've had more downtime out of Google in the past few years than I ever did out of my Yahoo mailbox.

As soon as Yahoo shows me my inbox instead of an ad when I sign in, I'd consider going back. Until then, all the wasted time clicking away from the ad cancels any extra uptime. Luckily I've heard Marissa is actually pushing for this change :)

Marissa is "pushing for it"?

If she wanted it done, it'd already be done.

she just announced it :)

Options -> Mail Options -> Behavior -> Inbox -> Check "Show on Startup"

While you are on that page, enable SSL by default: Turn on SSL: Check "Make your Yahoo! Mail more secure with SSL"

Well, outlook.com / live.com email is pretty nice nowadays. I'm tempted to forward my personal gmail stuff there for a while to see how it holds up.

Or you could go for a paid service without the ads. And we don't sell your data :)


gmail sells your data?

Uses your data to target ads, using the term sells your data is a bit strong for what they do.

I tried outlook.com for a while after the launch, but I just can't go back to the folder system. Tag & archive is now a requirement for any future email service I'll use.

pay $20 ?

Don't go back. Yahoo isn't good option. http://www.sami-lehtinen.net/blog/yahoo-mail-whats-wrong-wit... I installed my own mail server with webmail. Now I'm happy.

chrome aborts left and right on win7 64, too.

Yeah, I get crashes all the time on Win 7 x64, but that might have something to do with having 100+ tabs open.

Ditto on Mountain Lion.

Wow, I was setting up a new Arch box and decided to install Firefox instead of Chromium, almost there.

Chrome it is not crashing for me - on Ubuntu64 12.10 - Germany

Chat seems to be offline - mail works

google-chrome on lubuntu crashed 3 times in a minute after going to gmail.
