I was using chrome for years without any problem, suddenly about a week ago some pages stop opening, sometime it takes minutes to load a page and sometimes it doesn't load any pages at all.

Temporally I'm using Firefox, but I’m so use to Chrome that I feel like switching from driving a ferrari to driving a bike.

What I've tried:

cleaning all cache, cookies, installed extensions.

reinstalling chrome

mv ~/.config/google-chrome{,.bak}

Does mv ~/.config/google-chrome{,.bak} help? – Joseph R. Sep 10 '13 at 22:50
@JosephR. nope, still the same – whveaguw Sep 11 '13 at 0:22

Have you checked if is there any broken/useless plugin which may cause the problem?

You can check the plugin list here (using chrome): chrome://plugins/

Just try disabling the plugins you don't use.

Anyway this may help:

disabling plug-ins didn't help – whveaguw Sep 11 '13 at 15:26
Have you also tried disabling "Predict network"? (here: ) – PeppeDAlterio Sep 11 '13 at 15:35
