Did you mean chromium-browser or Google Chrome? Looks like the browser ran out of memory, what is the RAM size? Can you post the last lines of dmesg? –  Lekensteyn Mar 10 '11 at 12:45
    
Google Chrome 10 is Beta and not stable. Google Chrome 9 is Stable. If this is chromium then I am not sure. BTW please tell from where you installed this. Google Chrome PPA for Chrome or from Official repos for Chromium –  Manish Sinha Mar 10 '11 at 12:47

Can you try the open source browser chromium-browser instead of Google Chrome? Debugging closed-source applications is more difficult. Install chromium-browser by issuing sudo apt-get install chromium-browser. You might want to remove google-chrome first. For the differences between google chrome and chromium, see What's the difference between Google Chrome and/or Chromium? What are the advantages/disadvantages to each?. –  Lekensteyn Mar 10 '11 at 13:22
    
I'll add it as answer, not everyone is reading these comments. –  Lekensteyn Mar 10 '11 at 22:15

Google Chrome is closed source. That makes it more difficult to debug the program compared to open source applications.

Uninstall google-chrome and install the open source browser chromium-browser instead:

sudo apt-get remove google-chrome && sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

google-chrome will clean itself up by removing their repository from apt.

There are some differences between the proprietary Google Chrome and Chromium Browser, but I have not missed any features yet.
