WebGL not supported on Google Chome?

From time to time there is an error on Google Chrome Version 87.0.4280.141 (Official Build) (64-bit) under Ubuntu 20.04. The error is

To fix the error I must restart the whole browser and start it again.

Do you know what might be causing the error and how we could avoid it?

Probably a driver issue?

Anything I could/should check next time?

It works on chromium, firefox and it also works on chrome. It just stops once or twice each day and I have to restart the browser.

This happens for me when my gpu crashes. After updating my drivers this happens less often now.
