If anyone is still unable to load the game in Chrome or IE due to it crashing, giving some strange mostly-blank popup error, or not refreshing/stuck at the end of the load bar (and the solution above doesn't work), it appears as though the only feasible solution is this: Install Mozilla.

xD

We were finally able to reproduce some of the errors mentioned in this thread on one of our work machines, but they were very clearly Chrome memory management problems. Went away pretty fast with a restart, which is a bloody shame - I'd love to have a way to trigger the problems reliably :(

I'm starting to feel like there's not much left that I can do to deal with these things via code - maybe we have to wait for a compatibility update to either Unity or Chrome to regain the stability that was randomly taken from us. That sucks so hard.

It's reassuring to know that you care and have at least given it a shot =) Frankly I figure we won't have to deal with the Unity web player after release so.. shwhateva!

We've sent everything through to Unity to get them involved in looking at what's going on here. Hoping they get back to us and say something like "Hey, stop being stupid and doing that silly thing right there!"

Lol, that's always nice (aside from the facepalm that often follows).

Best of luck to us all then!

Tadaa! Seems to work in Chrome again!

UPDATE: Chrome has stopped being stupid and no longer strangles memory. However this may not be permanent because Chrome updates very often. For reliable game-play the only solution is Firefox. However chrome can be used most of the time by reducing the size of the window. This causes other memory stealing things in your window from stealing memory from the game. Unity has also been having issues with chrome for a few months now because of the sheer amount of memory the engine takes. Unity is working on the issue and it should be fixed sometime soon. Hope this shed a small amount of light on the subject. :)

EDIT: Thanks for the correction.

I can attest to this not being the case. In some or many cases, yes, but not all.

I have been having ongoing problems with the game not loading on my laptop for.. months now. Works fine in any browser on my home PC(never had a chrome issue at all). However I get a fatal content error after full bar load every time regardless of browser(have tried up to date chrome, firefox and ie8). Not sure what I can try, have retried every update, cleared cache, updated unity to latest, and even attempted the resizing of the screen(which oddly gives me a different error in firefox, shows me a unity crash error instead). Not really the end of the world but it would be nice to continue playing the game mobily(would be much more capable to give updates and feedback).

Could you post the Unity error you get here? It could be that FF might tell us something useful. Also, there's a small chance that restarting between uninstalling the unity web-player plugin and installing it again might help, there does seem to be information carried over between installs in non-standard ways.
