Last 2 months a had an constant issue where Sockwave flash kept crashing after a while. I had to restart chrome to make browser responsive. This is the easiest solution I found to resolve this.
Copy-Paste this text on Address bar chrome://plugins/
Or go to Options->Under the Hood -> Content Settings -> Disable individual plug-ins… (Click)
Now Locate Flash on this List. If you see Flash (2 files) this is good.
On the right you will see a details button, Expand.
And disable the Flash version with Location
