Web GL Crashes in Windows 8.1, 10 for Some Users
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.
I’ve looked on several other similar reported problems and it seems that it is related to an old version of Windows 8.1 or Chrome. So, you need to make sure that you go to Windows Update and check for the latest updates, as there is one that is fixing this problem for users. Let us know if you know of other working fixes.
