Google chrome version 62.0.3202.62 is not working for me

The Problem

Google chrome version 62.0.3202.62 starts but is not working in several linux distributions. It shows lots of sad faces in each open tab, all of the chrome extensions crash. Not even "Help -> About Google Chrome" works.

The "Not Really Good Solution"

You are able to start it if you run:
$ google-chrome --no-sandbox &
At least you can quickly see some important information you left in a tab before you did the upgrade.

The Slightly Better Solution

This one works too:
google-chrome --disable-namespace-sandbox &
Better than no sandbox, I guess...

Good links for information

I'll try to keep them here:

Google Chrome Legacy Versions, no RPMS unfortunately
