EDIT (2008-09-04 09:09) – Thanks to a tip from a commenter, I added the “no-sandbox” switch to my Chrome shortcut, and it’s now working for me.
EDIT (2008-09-02 08:35) – I uninstalled and re-installed via an elevated command prompt. Still the same results. Fail Folder.
This is all I see for any web page I try to open in Google Chrome. It appeared to install without a hitch.
“Aw, Snap! Something went wrong while displaying this webpage. To continue, press Reload or go to another page.”
I dub thee “Google Fail Folder”:
Anyone else see this problem? I’m running Vista 32-bit. I’ve already tried running the app as admin with no luck.

Mine is working with no problems. Weird that you experience this.

I haven’t had any problems, sorry to hear that you’re suffering 🙁
It installed perfectly on my home pc, and on a friends pc — however on my work pc I get the same result as you show. WinXP on all of them.

Are you running a 64 bit version of Windows? You behind a proxy or firewall?
John Rockefeller says:
Haven’t seen that before. Worked fine for me and many others. WinXP & Vista.
Bryan Young says:
I got the same error on the first page I went to (ironically, it was google.com). After restarting, I was able to run fine. A while later the whole browser crashed (not just a tab, as promised).
I’m running on Vista too. I used bootcamp on my Mac for the first time in months.
Vista 46 bit – works perfectly for me. I suspect this is a permissions problem & have you have something else running that is restricting access to something important. Have you got something like a virus protector running? or are running under restricted permissions?
No problems here, I installed it at work and used it all day (XP Pro) and at home (Vista). It works fine for me… have you tried reinstalling?
I do like the friendly error message though.
simply input “:%” (without quote) in the address bar, the chrome will definitely crash right away.

We needed to add the following command line argument:
“It installed perfectly on my home pc, and on a friends pc — however on my work pc I get the same result as you show. WinXP on all of them.”
Maybe your work PC needs to work through a proxy.

I’m glad it is working for so many people out of the gate. 🙂
Raphael — The ‘no-sandbox’ command-line switch works for me. Must be a security policy on my company’s domain. I have the same workstation setup on my home PC, and have no issues with Chrome. Thanks for the tip!
Matt B. — I prefer “Snappy the Fail Folder” to “Sad Tab”.
Yep it is the fact your in a windows AD. Doing the -no-sandbox will work so google still needs to correct this…

Hi. Thanks a bunch. Where I work I was having the same problem (although at home, no problem at all).
Once again, thanks for the tip.

So far I have been using Chrome since its release. It is nice, but the lack of features makes it hard to use. With Mozilla Firefox you have all of the extensions in place to block ads, unwanted scripts, control web site styles, get weather updates, etc, etc. Chrome is SUPER basic.
