Is Google Chrome Broken on Mac OS with the latest update, or is it just me?

macOS & Mac Apps

I just updated Chrome on my Mac today and now the VO cursor constantly gets stuck in the tab bar. I looked at the navigation pane of the vO utility, and all the cursors are supposedly linked. Anyone else experiencing this issue? Thanks in advance.

the behavior you described is true, and you can chalk it off as broken, but there are ways to deal with it.

the "tab bar" is actually the toolbar. when you first try to interact with the page content, you are actually interacting with the toolbar. so if you were to go to, you would land on the toolbar first, and if you keep arrowing right, you'd land on " Online Shopping for Electronics, Apparel, Computers, Books, DVDs & more HTML content", that's the actual page content.

if you use a trackpad, there is an easy way to get to the content. after interacting with the toolbar, you will find "chrome" button at the upper right cornor of the trackpad, then just swipe right once, you should land on the content.

Thanks. Unfortunately, the VO cursor doesn't move out of that position easily, not even with control-VO-f4 or -f5. This means I have to do a simulated mouse-click on various controls, and even that doesn't always work. I may have to play with it some more without the toolbar and see what happens.

Actually chrome for me is much better, Safari crashes a lot for me, it always has. And chrome is faster than safari is any day. Apart from the first time in 2011when I first used chrome, it has gotten a lot better.
