Google may have come out with some great street view enhancements lately, but there's a bug with Chrome and Street View that Google is aware of and will be fixing.
The bug reported is:
When I toggle the left-side information bar on or off while in Street View, the image becomes entirely black (until I refresh).
Now I don't have Chrome, or I'd send you a screenshot -- but Maps Guide Adam says that he successfully reproduced the bug that was reported and has submitted it to the production team so that they can take a look at it and resolve the issue.
Forum discussion continues at Google Groups.
