Google Drive on Chrome was having continual errors (Google Drive 401 errors on the files it was loading in the background) that meant the apps needed to view/edit and create most of the documents associated with my Google Drive account wouldn’t load. I figured out that since it worked in other browsers there must have been something Chrome specific. It turns out that this was due to the fact that I was running Chrome with the “–disable-web-security” flag enabled as I often need to bypass some security to be able to test some of my work locally and remotely. By removing that flag Google Drive started works normally again.
Good luck and Drive safe 😉
