Chrome Version 74.0.3729.131 (Official Build) (64-bit).

Running on a Dell Inspiron 620 with i5-2310 CPU and 16 GB RAM.
I typically have hundreds of tabs open, which might contribute to the problem.
I don't think it can be a printer driver issue, because it happens when I:
Print -> Save as PDF.
Thank you, AVail, this was helpful to me.
It's not an ideal solution, obviously, but it's better than having Chrome crash all the time.
There's no "Save as PDF" option when print preview is disabled, unfortunately. The "Microsoft Print to PDF" driver is still available, but it does an inferior job, on many web pages.
Better is to view the page in Opera, and use Opera's "Save as PDF" feature, which doesn't seem to crash. (I like that it can save the web page as one long "page," without page-breaks, too.)
