Default [Q] Why does Chrome keep freezing?

Running 4.4.4. Think this started after the 4.4 update. Sometimes Chrome works fine, other times the page refuses to load. The blue line under the URL starts to go from left to right; gets about 1/10th of the way, then just stops. The blue line goes away (finishes loading?) and the page is blank. I uninstall the Chrome updates and go back to the original Nexus 4 Chrome, and it works fine. Later, I'll update Chrome, and it works fine. Then, a few days later, the freezing starts all over again.

Any help? Or, should I just give up on Chrome on the Nexus 4? This only happens on my Nexus 4; not other devices and not even on my wife's Nexus 4.

Not facing this issue personally. If there was any way this error could be reproduced, maybe we would be able to help you.

Hi all, I have a problem with Chrome. I'm using galaxy s5 and whenever I open the browser for the first time I get the message: Unable to access the network, but once I refresh the page it loads everything as it should. How do I fix it without having to constantly keep chrome in the RAM. Thanks

Same blank page issue here....a quick Google shows many others having this issue too. So far all of the remedies on googles forums are worthless.
