Chrome is a 32-bits application, such as Skype or iMovie, and 10.8.5 broke compatibility with 32-bits app and the Mid-2013 MacBook Air Facetime HD Camera.
Hopefully Apple will release an update fixing that issue :-)
Switched for Macbook 2 years ago from Windows, but looks they started to enjoy their position both in Mac and mobile iOS and ignoring even the biggest third-party products compatibility. It is awful and with such attitude Apple will fell back to between Steve times. I bought a new Macbook Air to enjoy, but not for headache! And Apple send us to third party vendors. Next time DIY Macbook?

You can send your comments and suggestions directly to Apple via Apple MacBook Feedback. You will not likely get a direct answer, but you can be confident that the responsible Apple people will see your input for consideration in future updates and product offerings.
You can offer feedback for Apple products other than your MB via the Apple Feedback page.
BTW, for other readers: workaround for the MacBook Air / OS X 10.8.5 problem at http://discussions.apple.com/thread/5306216?tstart=0
When will Apple finally comment on this issue in a meaningful way?
According to Apple's technical support article entitled "MacBook Air (Mid 2013): FaceTime HD Camera might not work after OS X 10.8.5 update", Apple is investigating this issue.
Until Apple publishes a "comment on this issue in a meaningful way", the best you can do is use the workaround at http://discussions.apple.com/thread/5306216?tstart=0.

You will need to troubleshoot to find the cause of the problem so you know what to fix.
(1) Restart Mac, repair permissions, then download and install OS X Mountain Lion Update v10.8.5 (Combo) (even though you have already updated.) Repair permissions again immediately following the restart that completes the Combo update. Test camera function. If you still encounter a problem with Skype, test more than one Apple camera app in more than one user account.
(2) If your problem continues, use OS X Recovery to reinstall Mac OS X Mountain Lion. Then use > Software Update… to verify that all your software is up to date. Install any needed updates and repair permissions one more time.
(3) if Skype continues to be the ONLY app that does not work in any user account you test, be sure you have the latest version of Skype properly installed. If the problem continues ONLY in Skype, seek help in Skype Customer Support.
