Google Chrome on Mac OS keeps shutting itself

Chrome on Lion 10.7.5 keeps closing while I'm in the midst of browsing, and it's driving me nuts. And it doesn't seem to think there's a problem with that.

I'm having problems with Google Chrome running on Lion 10.7.5, where it suddenly closes itself while I'm in the middle of browsing. No warnings saying it's closing, not even warning me even though I checked off Warn Before Quitting, and no errors showing up after it closes. It just up and quits.
It usually happens when I'm opening a new tab, or maybe even when I'm using Cmd-Tab to shift between applications. It just closes abruptly, and that's it. When I open Chrome back up, it doesn't ask to restore anything, so I'm assuming it thinks it was a normal quit operation. I do see it maintains pinned tabs, so nothing seems out of the ordinary.
And from checking Chrome, this is the most updated version they have out, version 25.0.1364.99. I didn't have problems with it closing before, but don't know whether this problem came with this recent version.
I went to Google's product forums to see if they've done anything about that yet, but the only thing I see are some other users on Mac saying that it is happening to them, with no resolution yet.
Just wanted to check if any of you guys have any tips on what else I can check inside of Chrome or maybe even OSX that can tell me what the hell is happening, because it's gotten pretty annoying to just keep opening and closing the damn thing.
