    Browser was good, now it's unstable


    I have been happily running an early version of the Chrome browser on my TF101 for some time. Recently it became unstable.
    I cleared the cache and did a cold boot but it made no difference.
    I updated to the latest version and that is even less stable.
    What could have happened to make my TF101 unstable when it was previously ok and how can I fix?? (without trying a bunch of other browsers)

    Oh man, it could be anything.

    Here are some pointers for you...

    1) Have you ever done a Factory Reset - if you haven't your TF101 is well overdue.
    2) Have you tried going to app settings & clearing, cache, data, force closing & then cold booting?
    3) Have you tried doing 2 & then uninstalling the app, cold booting & then reinstalling the app followed by another cold boot.

    Or maybe you do just need to try a different browser - the guide thread linked in my signature gives copious amounts of hints, tips & suggestions...

    All the best

    Or - if you were happy with that old Chrome version you used - first disable automatic updates in Play Store settings, then uninstall the updates for Chrome in Settings > Apps > All.
    Is Chrome the only Google app misbehaving? A recent update to Google Play Services caused issues on other devices. You can also try to uninstall updates to GP services.
    If neither of those does it, a factory reset would be the next step. And I agree with janner43 - it's probably overdue anyway..
