lol, gifs still doesnt work well. wtf google. -.-

Tomo said...

mukizu how did you get that? I'm running new build and there is still old speed dial :/

Tomo said...

False alarm :D I've figure it out :)

mukizu said...

@all

I don't know 'bout you, guys, but I have this GIF animated ;)
So it's must be your problem, not Chrome's.

Red said...

Will the Downloads page/Show all downloads problem in incognito mode be fixed soon?

joegrind said...

Thanks for these awesome updates. Are you guys working on an auto-refresh...kinda like what Opera has?

Question to Mukizu or anyone with the answer >> In the pix above: http://s45.radikal.ru/i107/0907/8e/15b8d3160b9e.jpg

How did you separate your bookmark bar from the url browser bar? Looks very cool...

Sangee said...

Linux version on the dev-channel download page is still 3.0.190.2. How do we get 191.3 without automatic updates?

krtulmay said...

@SHAWN, in Wrench menu, do *not* select "Always show the bookmarks bar" (or just Ctrl+B) and the Bookmarks Bar will be detached in the new tab page.

Arek said...

It's faaaaaaaaaaaast!

SHAWN said...

krtulmay >> I get it now. Question is how can I have the detached bookmark bar in a normal browser window and not just on the tab page?? I looks great detached from the url bar.

If it can't be done now, maybe in a future release.

krtulmay said...

SHAWN, the Bookmarks Bar only gets detached like that on the new tab page.

Locke said...

I like the idea behind the new tab page, but I really prefer the layout of the original. Everything seems to spaced out now and some of the original functionality is gone.

MeatPiston said...

I cant access youtube..

anything else than a search results pages gives me a blank page with "http://www.youtube.com" as the address or a blank page with "http://www.youtube.com/index=7000" as the address

Keep kicking butts dev team!!

Animated GIFs are working now. Some Favicons are still messed up, for whatever reasons.

Archie said...

Animated PNGs still don't work though.

There isn't currently any support for animated PNG's. As far as I know, Opera and FF do support it.

yusher said...

still i cant see popup blocker progress bar with this website. usis.yildiz.edu.tr

Delboy769 said...

I'm sorry to have to ask this, but is there a simple way to enter the command line switch? I have no idea how to do it and I'd really like to see the new "New tab" page. Thanks :)

Archie said...

Delboy769... [assuming you're using windows] If you right click on the shortcut for chrome, then in the box where it says target put --new-new-tab-page outside the quotes.
Other useful ones are --enable-extensions and --auto-spell-correct

joegrind said...

@Archie (or others)...I'm at work and can't try it now...but is it possible to have all 3 command lines (ie. one after the other) to enable multiple extensions?

houtxone said...

New tab page works great. Thanks!

Mehdi said...

To be honest, I didn't get the Pin(or Unpin) thing, what does it do? And, I don't know, we could do better than this on the New Tab Page, maybe? I could previously directly search for Youtube videos from the previous New Tab Page, I'll miss that feature.

Archie said...

@joegrind Yes you can, you just need to leave a space in-between them.

Archie said...

@Mehdi, I think it stops it from being replaced by a page you visit more often than the one that you've pinned.

Ricardo Z. Vendramini said...

I think it would be cool if the new tab windows options works like plasmoids in KDE.

vhanla said...

Actually the gifs doesn't animate properly on my XP SP3 PC, it has delays.

Murat said...

what has changed..?? what means new new tab?

Archie said...

Murat, you'll find this helpful

Murat said...

Archie.. Thank you...

nice look... how can i make my page look like this..

ps: why is all this so difficult to handle?

Archie said...

No worries - look at what I said to Delboy769, that should explain it all.

Not sure why it is "so difficult" probably because this is a developer channel and they don't want to waste time coded the GUI for features that don't make it to the final build.

Makoto said...

Great new tab view. I request a feature like present in Avant Browser, that synchronize bookmarks, logins and Chrome configurations in a Google Account.
This make possible to use portable Chrome in any computer with all your preferences, including bookmarks, logins, search shortcuts, DNS fetches and others, only needing login in your Google Account.

Cont3mpo said...

$ google-chrome --new-new-tab-page

On Linux is like that, right?

gNEV said...

How restore some Search enter as in previous version of new tab?

Archie said...

This is an interesting page letting you know what you can do with dragging tabs on chrome:

StepSeeker said...

I love the new new tab page, especially that you can easy rearrange the thumbnails. What will be good too if you have option to increase the number of thumbnails shown and also if there is "add to new tab page" option in the history.

Murat said...

Archie... thank you very much.. it worked..

you are the number one...!! :)

noufalz said...

one more time...google chrome is rock!!
amazing update ...

my advice is proxy setting is different than IE..like firefox or opera

OMG-Q said...

It crashes opening a new tab, it crashes opening a new bookmark.. Well, it crashes)) Chrome just shows me "ohmygod" error page)) Restart helps until new tab opened..
