So, I noticed since updating Google Chrome it constantly crashes despite reboots, and reinstalling...

...then I see this on Twitter today:

saurik: Sigh. @googlechrome added untested jailbreak-specific code on iOS; if you have "send crash reports" off, it crashes. https://t.co/HyJnDmqezg

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up.

I saw that earlier too, and the app crashes on my JBed iPad mini.

Fair bit of irony here, that this app from those Open guys detects jailbreak and falls over. Pure accident I'm sure.

Update: An update to Chrome was just pushed to the App Store, and everything is now back to normal.

Just when I was getting used to Safari again...incidentally, I had reinstalled Fullscreen for Safari, and it came pretty close to mimicking the gestures of Chrome.

yes I'm sure Google does not frown upon or care about a few percent of iPhone users jailbreaking lol.
I think they'd encourage it if anything.
