Usually when I start chromium it hangs with a white screen and the spinner twirling while attempting to load the startup page, www.freebsd.org. After several minutes, there is a popup stating that the page is unresponsive and I then kill it. If I hit the reload button, the scenario is repeated.
At other times after using chromium for sometime, the same behavior is exhibited when I try to navigate to a new website.
On the same machine, I can run Firefox without any issue.
Set your default page and then stop/restart chromium. In my case, the startup page is www.freebsd.org. I'm also using the xfce4 window manager.
Switched to Firefox
