Running Ubuntu 12.04LTS. I tried to load Google Maps with the OpenGL 3D new functionality. My system does weird things graphically and still reports system errors after reboot. What shall I do?

BTW, I cannot access maps any more, if I do the system crashes again.

12.04 LTS, Sandy Bridge card. I was using Chrome. What else is required? – maxrossello Jun 7 '12 at 11:20
MapsGL runs on WebGL, make sure Chrome has WebGL enabled by entering the url chrome://flags in chrome. – Samik Jun 7 '12 at 11:45

I had the same problem. I am on 12.04 as well. Visiting the URL below will restore your access to Google Maps.
