I just updated to Google Chrome 6, and the web is falling apart around me.
Our internal web-based support system just gives me:
This webpage is not available. The webpage at <url> might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address. More information on this error Below is the original error message Error 9 (net::ERR_UNEXPECTED): Unknown error.
The captcha image on Skeet's latest blog entry comes up as a broken image:
Of course, I can't actually see the image here either, since it is equally broken for me.
Note: I have of course verified the relevant sites with IE8 and FireFox and they work and look fine in all other browsers. They also looked fine yesterday, in Chrome 5, and our internal support system has had no updates or whatnot for a long time so I doubt anything happened that made it break. Indeed, it works fine on other machines here that still has Chrome 5 installed.
These are just two examples of a myriad of websites that are either subtly broken or just plain doesn't give me any content at all.
Does anyone else have problems with Chrome 6, or is it just me?
More info: I tried disabling all extensions, no change. What else can I tweak that might impact this? I checked proxy settings, all checkboxes unchecked, so no auto-discovery enabled either (which I know has caused some performance problems for me in the past.)
I also cleared my cache. No change.
