There have been various problems reported with the Chrome functionality in Windows 8.1, such as the mouse wheel not working properly. Also, for more users, Chrome is looking blurry in Windows 8.1, but we’ve covered a few fixes. Now, another Chrome problem has been reported in Windows 8.1, related to WebGL. Here’s what one user is saying:

Since two days ago GMaps for Desktop cannot load WebGL, giving the error “WebGL had an issue”, while before it worked perfectly! I’m not able to understand the cause….The only way I can use it is disabling WebGL in chrome://flags. I’m running Windows 8.1 and Chrome 32 Beta version.
