Chrome occasionally becomes unresponsive after snapping it to the side. The contents fail to resize to the new window size, and Chrome does not respond to any mouse/keyboard input. The work-around is to switch to another application and back again. Is there a better solution?

Although I am still having this problem with Chrome v49, this issue was closed as fixed in v45: Issue 516234 UI stops updating when multiple Chrome windows are snapped to the left/right in Windows 10

Installing any theme seems to prevent this from happening. Try installing the 'classic' theme provided by Google to maintain Chrome's look and feel. It looks exactly the same, so I don't know what changed but Chrome stopped freezing for me.

Mentioned in a lot of places, like this Reddit discussion: Chrome Windows keeps freezing when I use Aero Snap
