Chrome is working for me on W8CP, but it is waaaaayyyy less stable than in was on W7. I downloaded Firefox and it seems to be working fine. Still, I much prefer Chrome. Hope stuff gets worked out soon.

I have no problems running Chrome on Windows 8. If you're experiencing issues, try running Chrome in compatibility mode for Windows 7. Right click your Chrome shortcut and select Properties. Click the compatibility tab, tick the box next to Run this program in compatibility mode for and select Windows 7. 

Let me know if this helps, thanks!
