Howdy do
 
Much of that depends on you keeping too many tabs open.
>>close unused tabs [A 2 GB RAM machine will choke on too many open tabs]
>>clear the browser [Settings>>advanced>>reset settings]
>>reboot your WiFi
 
let us know

I find it a bit disturbing that this is the advice/workaround I keep seeing. I have an Acer 15 Chromebook. It could handle multiple open tabs a month ago. Coinciding with the latest OS update, it can't handle two open tabs without discarding them from memory when switching. Long, or busy pages will Aw, Snap a single tab. I can't check another tab as I type this, or this page will be discarded and I'll have to write this over again.

I've done my due diligence. I've shrunk my tab usage to one. I've done CROSH diagnostics on my hardware. I've gone through my Wi-Fi connection to see if there was a problem there. I've gone through the Aw Snap help page list of solutions. Nothing has worked. I'm frustrated, and I'm not alone. I'm seeing more and more Chromebook users reporting the exact same issues on multiple Google support threads as well as places such as Reddit. I'm hoping for at least an acknowledgment from Google that something in the last OS update caused an issue with tab discarding or a memory leak and that the issue is being investigated.

There are some open bug reports on this issue. The best thing for you to do is to file a feedback report so that the developers can get more logs to analyze.

Thank you for replying, Mr. Dantin.

I was getting frustrated not hearing the issue addressed anywhere.

I've submitted the issue.

I appreciate you taking the time. Again, thank you.

When I bought my first laptop I told the Target salesman my desktop had died. That should have told him I used Windows. Windows 7 Home Premium to be exact. If he had told me the Acer Chromebook uses Chrome as its OS I WOULD NOT HAVE BOUGHT IT!! All I can do is wait until I can afford a DESKTOP with WINDOWS and throw this piece of junk out.
