Google Chrome : Issues?

Recently I've started using Google Chrome as my browser. Generally I find it very good, but I have found a few issues with it.

The most general problem is that, occasionally, pages will not load and the screen stays blank with no reported error. Even a reload doesn't fix this.

However, I am finding a more specific problem using this blogspot editor with Chrome; it doesn't seem possible to compile a graphic link like the Chrome image to the left, instead just substituting the graphic url for the page url.

So, I've reverted to FireFox when compiling the blog.

I can't find any reference to this anywhere ...

Chrome/Blogspot editor throws up this code:

<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_nK-wrCuacfU/SzIEbVvBtkI/AAAAAAAAE48/nOXiZSq4doM/s1600-h/chrome.png"><img style="float:left; margin:0 10px 10px 0;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 150px; height: 150px;" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_nK-wrCuacfU/SzIEbVvBtkI/AAAAAAAAE48/nOXiZSq4doM/s400/chrome.png" border="0" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5418398169417496130" /></a>

Firefox/Blogspot editor:

<a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href="http://www.google.com/chrome"><img style="margin: 0pt 10px 10px 0pt; float: left; cursor: pointer; width: 150px; height: 150px;" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_nK-wrCuacfU/SzIDWzWlGZI/AAAAAAAAE40/ov-onUiLMy0/s400/chrome.png" alt="" id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5418396991957047698" border="0" /></a>

And I've just noticed another issue; FireFox obeys the autostart="false" command on the music streamer at the top rh of this page ... Chrome just starts regardless ...
