Gmail and Chrome weathered outages and bugs earlier today. Google says it is looking into the problem.
Gmail went flakey earlier this morning, sputtering out a bunch of 502 error messages, and sending legions of users onto Twitter to complain about their bad luck. (Some of Twitter messages were pretty funny.)
Meanwhile, Google's Chrome browser was also weathering some serious problems – we watched our browser crash six times in the space of an hour. Google, for its part, has listed a "service disruption" for Gmail, and promised to look into the outages.
"We're investigating reports of an issue with Google Mail," Google reps wrote today. "We will provide more information shortly."
