I'm seeing problems identical to this issue, where Chrome either crashes, becomes unresponsive, or the screen goes black if I switch between tabs. Logcat shows:

OpenGLRenderer is out of memory

According to the Chromium issue, this stems from bugs in the Tegra video drivers. For the Asus Transformer, it was fixed by a system update. (I'm running the most recent ICS update on my Iconia Tab.)

Is there anything I can do to get Chrome working reliably on the A200, and is there any hope of Acer fixing their software?

Have you tried contacting Acer? I'd see if you can find a reproducable way to make it happen with the built-in apps, then report it to Acer as a bug. Might not get anywhere, but you won't know till you try. – Michael Kohne Jun 28 '12 at 20:37
I'm on an A200 as well; I'm not having that crash. I'm getting other crashes, tho', with Chrome. The recent build is better than the older one. – aramis Sep 11 '12 at 22:49
