Problems with webplayer in chrome on OSX

I am experiencing some issues with the unity webplayer plugin and Chrome on OSX.

OSX: Up to date OSX Lion
Chrome: 18.0.1025.163
Webplayer: V3.5.1f2
machine: Model Name: iMac
Model Identifier: iMac10,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 3.06 GHz
Video:ATI Radeon HD 4670

When I run my webplayer in chrome the page stalls and won’t receive input while the .unity3D file is downloading and also while my webplayer is downloading any files via WWW.

I’ve tried the demos on the unity website and they behave similarly.

I also have the chrome page has become unresponsive message at times.

Has anyone experienced this, and does anyone know how to get around it?
