This apparently does not happen very often: Google Chrome just won’t load or render a page. If you type a search term in the address bar, you will see the Google search guesses. However, the page will flat-out refuse to load.
This happened to me on my desktop at work, but nowhere else. I installed, re-installed, tweaked Windows Registry settings all to no avail. Very frustrating. Some time later, I learned about Chrome’s Flags page and found the solution.
- Type chrome://flags into Chrome’s address bar and press the Enter key.
- Find GPU Compositing on All Pages and disable the feature.
- Click the Relaunch Now button at the bottom of the page.
If this does not resolve the issue, return to the Flags page, disable Threaded Compositing, and click Relaunch Now.
