I did a fresh install of Ubuntu, installing 12.04. For a week or so everything was fine then the browsers kept crashing.

Chrome constantly keeps giving me the "aw snap" window, there is no particular page it happens on but it often crashes when i go on twitter and Google news.

Firefox gave me the following report after it crashed a few moments ago:

  • What version of flash do you have installed for FF? I don't know about Chrome, but there have been reports of a flash bug making FF more crashy. See arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=1176823 – Jason Jul 4 '12 at 0:44
