Default Anyone else getting new-Chrome crashes on YouTube?

I have Chrome as my secondary browser. With the latest scare-story,
especially as it mentioned 7-32 which is what I run, I thought - I'm
already drinking the Kool-aid by using Chrome at all, so I might as well
"up"grade it to seal that hole.

(I had problems doing so - wouldn't upgrade itself; I had to download an
installer. I got the standalone one. Running that [having turned Chrome
off beforehand], it came up, with all my tags, and I think settings,
intact.)

I've moved from Chrome 64 to 72.

Twice today, it has crashed - not what I'd normally expect of a crash
(goes off a cliff then lies there broken in the valley, with its wheels
spinning uselessly), but it just closed suddenly - as in one moment it
was there, then it wasn't - sort of "where's it gone?". On restarting
it, it said it had closed unexpectedly, did I want my tabs back; when I
said yes, it restored. I think it's happened a third time - it's not
running now, and I don't remember closing it. I'll just reopen it ...
yes, I got the "Restore pages?" prompt.

All three times, the active page (of 11 tabs open) was YouTube; I don't
know, of course, if that was/is relevant.

Anyone else getting odd behaviour like this* from Chrome since the
latest "up"grade of Chrome they weren't before?

I just - where the * is above - tried just closing the YouTube tab, and
Chrome disappeared again. I've restored it, and will try again: that
time, the tab closed but Chrome stayed up.
