I have installed Google chrome (about two months ago) and everything worked fine until the beginning of this month.

At that point, it would no longer display or play videos from any source.

Has anyone else had this problem?

If so, what was your solution?

Thanks

Not me. In fact, superior video streaming is the main reason that I use Chrome for about 30% of my web browsing.

Firefox still does better CSS rendering, has far more addons, and is more stable. I still use Firefox for about 60% of my web browsing. I do prefer the Chrome UI so installed the ChromiFox Extreme Firefox addon to make Firefox look more like Chrome.

I like that Chrome now has extensions. The interface is much better, imo, it never seems to crash (unlike firefox), and it seems faster.

You have your opinion, I have mine. Doesn't make either one more valid than the other.

I used Chrome for about 12 months. I ran into problems where webpages would freeze for about 5 seconds before I could click anything. Videos no longer ran properly. I would have to close/reopen Chrome to get pages/videos to load properly. It also did not play nicely with my webmail or some web applications that I use.

Part of the problem is that it was unsupported.

I switched to Firefox so I could continue browsing without problems. I reinstalled Chrome about 5 months later to see if they fixed those bugs that I had reported. Same problems as previously within about a week's time. I don't know what is wrong, but I switched to Firefox. I gave Chrome a real chance too.

Love adblock

First Tuesday of the month? If I recall correctly that's when Microsoft does it's updates. You might check your update history and see if any were installed then.
