Google Chrome Crashes in OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 Beta

November 22, 2014

Google Chrome Crases in OS X 10.10.2 beta build 14C68k

From Chromium Project:

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Open Chrome.
2. Attempt to interact with the browser in any way.

What is the expected behavior?
Browser should work.

What went wrong?
The browser crashes completely on every start attempt.

After further investigation, it seems the crash happens when built-in Trackpad or Magic Trackpad is used to interact with Google Chrome on any Macs running OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 build 14C68k.

-[NSTouch _initWithPreviousTouch:newPhase:position:isResting:]: unrecognized selector sent to instance

isResting Available in OS X v10.6 through OS X v10.9

ie deprecated in 10.10 Yosemite and looks like removed in 10.10.2

We’ll see if this issue would be resolved in the next build of OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 seed.

    This is an annoying issue. I even downgraded but forgot to turn off auto-update and ended up back on 10.10.2. I use chrome exhaustively for work. This is no good! Please post an update if you find a work around prior to the next dev release.
