I went to a link at and my browser crashed.

When I reload it, I get the message, "Sync Error: Update sync passphrase"

This might just be an innocent crash, but it sure sounds like a hack attempt.

Do I need to change every password I have everywhere, cancel all my credit cards, move to a new address, and change my appearance?

No, Some Google services are just currently down. – Ramhound Dec 10 '12 at 17:37

Google's services are having bit of a problem now. That's causing Chrome to crash, specifically, the sync part. So no, it's not a hack attempt.
