I am going Google Chrome, on Windows XP. Sometimes it crashed, and I want to know where the crash dump is located, just for fun.
There is no longer an 'under the hood' option anymore and hence the above answer is obsolete and no longer of any use. With a newer version of chrome you need to enable crash logs by going to
- enabling: Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Google.
- After that you can check your crash logs here:
As far as I know you cannot see crash dumps / logs unless you've started chrome with the
--enable-logging --v=1 (in Linux)
flag. Otherwise the only thing you see will be the crashID.
Please refer to this page for more information regarding chrome and debuging/logging.
Though I'd be a happy person if someone proved me wrong and showed a way for retrieving a crashdump / log based on crashID ( f5bf0cf6f184b9d2 )
You can get the dmp file and analyze it following these directions: http://www.chromium.org/developers/decoding-crash-dumps
