Photoshop CS6 freezes every single time I toggle back to an open window in Chrome. I had this problem both before updating to El Capitan as well as after. I have to force quit Photoshop at least 5-6 times a day, very frustrating and time consuming.

I haven't heard of others with problems in this scenario. I would try some general troubleshooting:

Running from a new Admin account or Safemode will eliminate an outside factors such as system extensions or other conflicts.

I have been using Photoshop CC (and prior stand-alone versions) with Google Chrome for years and years and years. I have never had any issues like this so I suspect it is something else in your setup.
