I just installed 12.04 and the first and only thing I did was install google-chrome-stable. When I run the program through terminal with google-chrome I get a few error (the first 3 or so lines below) then as I browse I get OmniBoxGtk errors and finally (normally when a Flash app or video is loaded) the browser crashes entirely which I think is represented by the last line below. I am brand new to Ubuntu so any help in getting this resolved is much appreciated!

As a practical method, I suggest you remove Google Chrome which is causing problems and use Chromium instead.

It's simply "the open-source project behind the Google Chrome browser" with the same features minus Google's branding, the built-in PDF viewer, the built-in Flash Player and access to some user data.

As explained here: www.webupd8.org/2012/09/new-chromium-stable-and-development.html

You can add the stable PPA and install Chromium using the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:a-v-shkop/chromium
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Or, if you want the latest dev builds, use the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:a-v-shkop/chromium-dev
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

Only if you still experience similer problems persist, you might need to go into some more technical stuff.
