If you are having issues with .get(), then you must be on a bad combination of chromedriver and Chrome browser.
I would recommend updating to chromedriver 2.36 or Above
And also make sure you have updated to the current Chrome Build 65 by opening this URL:
If you cannot update to current, please try this:
from selenium import webdriver
ChromeOptions = webdriver.ChromeOptions()
driver = webdriver.Chrome('your/path/to/chromedriver.exe', chrome_options=ChromeOptions)
