[Fix] Chrome - Purge Memory Button Crash
Alright, so I started using chrome today, and I added the command line to my shortcut which launches chrome, to specify that I want that purge memory button in the task manager built in chrome. I tried using it immediately, and it crashed chrome no matter what I did. It appears to be that they have a segmentation fault throwing this runtime exception, and I am using the latest release version of chrome. A "dummy" fix I found which allows the button to work as intended, is to add another command line option tupled with the --purge-memory-button command line argument:

--winhttp-proxy-resolver

Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe" --purge-memory-button --winhttp-proxy-resolver

And now you should be able to use the purge memory button normally without chrome crashing. Just a semi-fix, before they fix this at the source for the latest build of chrome.

Interesting error. Thanks for the tip.

I used to use Chrome a lot (still do at work), now I've switched back to FF. And here you go from FF to Chrome. Haha.

I would use Firefox all day, but It was getting slow on me the past couple days (because I was doing some research; maybe 40 tabs open). It started giving me issues.

However, I end up becoming hopeful in a couple days, usually, because I think at heart I'm a Firefox guy, and that's when I start using it again. :)

edit: Laugh I didn't even notice, I'm already using Firefox again.
