I hope bug 406 is fixed soon
the --enable-sync option doesn't seem to be working
the --enable-sync option doesn't seem to be working, crashes chrome immediately
Same here --enable-sync crashes chrome immediately
Ditto here on --enable-sync
This update to Windows's Chrome is very poor!Was it necessary two weeks for this?Deception!
Bye bye, --enable-sync!!!
I have seriuos problem with this version... every time I open chrome it crashes immediatly. the only way to use it is in incognito mode. I'm on vista 64 bit. Don't know what to do :(
Error parramtre launch Chrome "- enable-sync"
I had to disable all the extensions from chrome:extensions to make chrome work fine again. is that a problem of chrome or the rules for extensions changed?
Chrome simply crashes now when I open the new tab page. I did disable everything else, such as extensions, userscripts... no luck.Anyone else having the same issue?
Same here, bug 22300 & 22309.Can we expect a new build fast ?
I sure hope there is a new build fast. I disabled all extra switches and the problem still exists, probably due to extensions. I can't keep Chrome open for more than a second or two.
tener habilitado --enable-sync causa que el navegador falle
Adding --disable-extensions to the command line makes this build usable (I am on XP).
Please fix issue 22320 that came up with this release today, it's preventing us to use bookmark sync by crashing chrome.
I'm in the same boat as Fabio the browser won't even open it immediately crashes. I uninstalled and downloaded a fresh dev same result.I;m going to delete all my data and try a completely fresh install since the etension may be the problem otherwide drop back to beta.
My chrome has gone and has not startup again.
I'm crashing on startup with --enable-sync as well. I've starred all three related issues that I could find: 22300, 22309, and 22329.
Very very very poor....Google, what happened? Where are the innovations??
@DIEGO,Not sure why you're talking about "innovations" when you're subscribed to the dev channel. The beta channel is for the general public to help test. The dev channel is for when developers (or highly adventurous people) want to help test. Expect lots of things to go wrong in the dev channel. If you can't hang with that, subscribe to the beta channel instead... or perhaps the regular production channel.
Why improve the New Tab page load performance and the slow it up by adding “handy hints” and extraneous invitations to “make this my home page”?
I agree. Perhaps there could be a small "options" link on the new tab page, allowing us to remove certain aspects? For instance, maybe I want the message letting me know that the bookmarks have failed to sync but don't need to be bothered to know each time they have successfully synced. Maybe I also want the thumbnails of frequently visited sites but don't need to see the "hints".
seems that there is not much new exciting feature or new V8 engine improvement etc for windows lately...btw, one interesting finding for drop down menu.after i select a value from drop down menu, the menu won't close until i need to click somewhere else on the page......is this a bug or "new feature" ??
I am amaze with the speed on this build, except for crash with --enable-sync.Hope they will fix this ASAP.BTW,I have same finding with matthew tsang.1) The dropdown box won't close if you have select a value, until click somewhere.2) The dropdown box won't open if dropping the list for 2nd time(click the arrow button on left to show the list, and click again to close the list, then click again and expect it will not drop down anymore).
i have the same problemseems to damage the enable syncronizing function!now google chrome is USELESS!!! without syncing my bookmarks
wmp plugin doesn't work
I'm also seeing the problem with drop down menus, you need to click elsewher for the menu to close...
See Google, this is why you don't release updates on Fridays. We get stuck with issues like this over the weekend that could have been otherwise fixed by the next day with a small update. There are just too many usability bugs in this one.
I don't understand Google anymore. They used to be such a great company, nowadays they don't do almost anything right. The new Docs interface is weeks late, this Chrome Dev release is totaly unusable, inovation has stopped in almost all products and they are posting mystery doodles instead of dealing with their products, some of wich need huge bugfixing and feature-adding.
@skyhard, Google is a great company and they still do great things. They are always inovating the internet. Just be pacient.
@joaoYes they are still a great company but its thing like this that make me wonder sometimes.
Using the --disable-extensions switch made Chrome stable for me again on Vista SP2.
This release crashes constantly and I don't even use --enable-sync.
I'm on a mac, and this new update installs some huge, ugly white bar on the bottom of the window. I see no way to remove it, and it essentially serves no purpose. Anyone know anything about this?
Gears seems to not work now also. Offline for gmail and calendar fail. Using enable/disable/enable doesn't fix. Deleting approval for gears and then re-enabling doesn't work. Seems like all sync features (bookmark, offline, etc.) have been knocked out by this release.
The sense of entitlement from some people who signed up for a Development channel is really astounding.@skyhard, diego, bob:You're running a DEVELOPMENT branch! You CHOSE to run it! If you want to run stable software, use the STABLE branch! It's on version 3 and *gasp* stable! Even the Beta branch gets updated once a month or so!If you can't handle a build that occasionally breaks, you've got no business running development software, much less whining about it like a spoiled child.
Come on guys... stop complaining about the crashes, you are using the dev channel version... it is supposed to happen some times.If you dont like crashed, go back to beta or stable channels and stop crying like little girls.Its just a buggy release on the best browser on earth.Keep up the good work guys!
@Aaron,I'm not sure why you lumped me in with all of the "whiners". I only made one comment saying that I hope it is fixed soon (I only say this because I enjoy the bookmark sync feature)... that's it. I didn't "whine" and, in fact, when someone else "whined" I told them that, perhaps, they'd be better off on the beta or stable channel. So, the fact that you decided to lump me in with the whining crowd makes it look as though you aren't actually reading messages too carefully.
I agree with you aaron, but what good is a dev release if 50% of the features don't work and you can't even test it. I have been on the dev channel since day one and never complained, but this build is just useless. Anyway, I know the team is doing the best they can so I don't blame them. And I hope the sync option will find its way into the beta branch soon, so I can finaly switch to the beta branch. I think that my dev days are over.
makes sense for a developer build to have bugs hehe
I really miss having "Clear browsing data" on the Tools menu. Even though it may be redundant, it's still very convenient! I don't know if anyone also wants "Import bookmarks & settings" on the Tools menu, but this may be advisable based on demand. Nevertheless, I am sure that many want "Clear browsing data" back on the Tools menu. Please bring it back!
yeah there are some problems but thats what most of yo signed up for :Pthere is also the ability to pin tabs, which means only the favicon is displayed! now i can save the screen real estate taken up by gmail and gcal!
@joe,Thanks for letting me know about the "pin tab" feature. That's awesome. I used a similar add-on in firefox before I switched to chrome. This is great news.
I'm amazed! It's the first time that I see a release on SATURDAY.Really ... the Google Chrome team doesn't stop. We all thank you!
I can't update to Version 220.127.116.11. I keep getting "Update server not available (error: 7)."
Oops... There's a small problem here:About Google Chrome > A new version of Google Chrome > Update Now > Installing new version... > Update server is not available (error:7).I'm think maybe works later.
Will NOT update to Version 18.104.22.168. I keep getting "Update server not available (error: 7)."
I getting error 7 too.
NEW BAG!http://s54.radikal.ru/i143/0909/91/05b64da80f8f.pngWhen starting the browser loaded the last page. Settings can not be changed.
)) not bag but bug ))
Same here, getting update server not available - error 7 after a awhile
i am also getting same Update Server Not Available (Error 7). on Windows 7 RC 7100. and i have googleupdate.exe running also but not works.
same here with the error.anybody can upgrade to 22.214.171.124??
nope. now its error 7. but I'm amazed that Google went all out and released an update on Saturday. Even though we can't download it. Way to go Google!!!
update error 7 why?
I used to get error 7, but now I can update to 126.96.36.199. :]
nice... but my chrome still crashes if any extension is enabled! I don't have any command line... to make it work I have to disable all extensions... even gmail extension, that is a sample extension provide by google, make the browser to crash. anyone has the same problem? vista 32-bit :(
Now I can update to 188.8.131.52,too.
I was able to install the new version. Can you guys install it now? And thanks Google for updating a DEV VERSION on weekends, I love you!
Error 7 should now be fixed. We had a problem with the download server configuration, but it's fixed now. (Yes, we're idiots for pushing a Dev release on a Friday. Thanks for your patience.)
Yeah, it crashes with extensions on.
@matt I wouldn't say idiots :P
Download files with this version 184.108.40.206 (also with 220.127.116.11) always terminate prematurely, usually around ~24/5MB.
@ above, its a known issue, refer above.@ everyone, is it just me or does this version seem slow?
Update works now but there is many problem's with stablity. Chrome hangs and restarting. I turn on Chrome after error and i see in history 17 tab closed. I click on it and Chrome hangs again. Then I can't back to my tabs.Windows 7
nm.. still have problem with the drop down menu...?
Is the problem sync bookmarks only?I got updated 18.104.22.168. Though, I couldn't start Chrome without using "--disable-extensions". Also I couldn't start with enable extensions (now no switch) with no extension installed. Thank you.
I'm still experiencing problems with Chrome start-up. I need remove all of my extensions now, in order to open Chrome.- Windows XP SP3
To be a temporary solution, I think you guy may start Chrome with "--incognito" to get it into incognito mode.Chrome --incognito
self reply:I have solved my problem. It was caused by one of my extensions. Thanks Chrome!
filed issue 22414 for the problems on startup with extensions enabled. star the issue if you note the same problem please.http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=22414
22.214.171.124 is still *very* unstable for me. Having trouble continuing developing the extension because it is so bad.
Beta moving to version 4 and Dev to version 5, I guess?
Found a bug with the select element - it can be clicked only once (it opens the options), after closing and trying to reopen nothing happens. The same happens if I focus it using keyboard and then "refocus" it.
Dropdown menus won't hide =(Vista x86
@Elektra, confirmed.This is the Issue 22120.Please, who want to follow, star there.
Yep. Dropdownmenus won't close on item selection
This version crash when I open it from my configuration (with scripts, extensions and sync).When I make a clean instalation chrome goes ok, but when I install an extension (the sample extensions, in fact, gmail notifier and that) crashes over and over again. So, I can't use extensions for now =(Greetings from Chile, sorry for my english =P
By the way, I use Win7 RC.
Same as ATG. I HAVE to use --disable-extensions, otherwise it crashes immediately. However, Google Apps GMail works.
Drop Down menu won't hide automatically after select. Huge one :(Thanks,Miral.
After this update I have a 30 pixel high bar at the bottom of the window. It's just empty.I'm using the Mac build with 10.6.1.
same as atg and bersI have xmarks alpha and google sync enabled for sync and adsweep as a extension. I'm only able start chrome when I --disable-extensions.
Chrome fails to display the left menu correctly on pages using mediawiki: http://www.centralgurdwara.org
Major problems with dropdowns. They are just not usable. Drop downs won't open for a second time on a given page.Hope this is fixed ASAP.
Error with comboboxes in Properties
Problem with copying. When I select any text and press Ctrl + C or right click and select copy, I get the grey window with the below message."Aw, Snap! Something went wrong while displaying this webpage. To continue, press Reload or go to another page."Seems like copy function is creating a problem.
This version is buggy, but what disappoints me is that, its slow. :(

Lastest build is working perfectly for me. Then again, I turned off bookmark sync a few builds back when it started duplicating bookmarks after syncing. I read an online manga and I have a bookmark I change every time I get to the end of a chapter. The syncing feature kept syncing the updated bookmark and then adding the original to the bottom of the menu. Very annoying so I disabled it.Plus, at some point they fixed the really annoying bug that was preventing me from dragging tabs between browser windows. Nice
126.96.36.199 crashes twice upon opening but is fairly stable after that. I have not disabled extensions. The only 2 that I have active at the moment are Gmail checker & Aniweather.I too have trouble with the drop down menus; won't hide after select and sometimes won't drop down at all.
wmp plugin not working
So far this build is "ok" but for sure there are issues when installing certain extensions causing Chrome to crash in a loop. So far I had to purge my cache and redo my profile to get everything up and isolate which extensions are breaking Chrome. Hopefully a new build will be out before the end of the week.
Hi team!Despite the fact that the combo-boxes won't close after selection (very annoying) this is a fairly stable version. Keep up the good work!Cheers,Bert.
This is clearly one of the less stable versions for the Mac at least. After blocking several tabs even if working in another application, I decided to go back to Firefox for the moment.So I closed down Chrome but now I see that a Google Chrome Helper process is still active in the background and that it consumes 95% of CPU resources.No good.
re: r25220 - Thanks guys!
I can't open google chrome... I mean... it is... VERY crashful... what can I do? When will be a newer update!
@SHJordan,Your options are to either include the switch --disable-extensions to turn off extensions when running chrome.exe... OR, reinstall Chrome and switch to the BETA or STABLE channel.The DEV channel is for developers who want to help test and debug Chrome, not those who want to use it on a daily basis and expect it to be stable and crash-free.
Having GMail and Google Reader extensions installed (first is from the Example Extensions page on the Chrome dev site, the other is a third-party one based on the first) causes Chrome to crash on startup after a few seconds as it populates the extensions toolstrip.Workaround is to quickly navigate to another page so the new tab page isn't visible while the extensions load. Once they load you can use the new tab page without crashing.Set your home page to somewhere else for a better workaround.
I copied the bookmarks, webdata and cookies from chrome, uninstalled it installed the latest Chromium build copied bookmarks, webdata and cookies into Chromium, reinstalled my extensions and I'm back in business.
YouTube videos takes a long time to load since i got this new version 188.8.131.52Before YouTube Videos loaded smoothly now it loads like 5 secs then takes like a minute to load another 5 secs.I know it's Chrome issue since it doesn't happens on Mozilla Firefox
drop down menu problem happening here as well. chrome on vista.
Cannot download files larger than 40.9 mb. Win 7 pro RTM.
How about add field for count of Most visited Tabs?
thanks for this blogand i'll take a copy for me pleaseمجموعة البورصة المصريةأخبار إنفلونزا الخنازير
the drop down menu problem is incredibly annoying
On version 184.108.40.206 - Crashes about 50% of opening Chrome.
Hey all,Drop-downs do not close on first selection. Then become unusable (cannot change selected value) on 2nd attempt to change value. Multi-selection of checkboxes in (gulp) hotmail disabled.
DROPDOWN MENU CRASHES STILL ONLY FIXED IN THE TRUNK.ISSUE 22120.
I noticed that Gmail sync is going on for ages now. Is anyone else seeing the same problem?
The 220.127.116.11 version is just perfect for now!Thanks a lot =)
now extensions are working
Thanks guys!Now Chrome works stable, bookmarks are syncing and don't crash the browser.
when window is in normal state the extension bar looks odd and when it's maximized it's ok with no problem.
The 18.104.22.168 better, but not perfect: problem with radiobuttons (can't choose only one) in propetries of Chrome.
Holy christ, how do I get rid of this obnoxious white bar at the bottom?? Also, cannot import bookmarks on mac
Yesterday I had version 22.214.171.124 and found a cool feature: Dragging a tab all the way to the left would shrink so that the title of the tab went away. I thought this was a very cool feature for my always-open windows. Today it's been updated to 126.96.36.199 and this feature is gone :-( Does anyone know what happened?
@Christian,didn't know there is such feature before, but anyway, you can try right click a tab and select Pin tab. :)
@tsangcymThanks, that works! I also found out that the dragging method does still work - just not always ;-)
It still works as christian said, and its awesome. :D
@Christian,Incredible, thanks a lot! It works in 188.8.131.52. If you drag the tab to the left corner and hold for 1/2 second, it shrinks!Amazing. All that I needed =PSorry my english.
The new Pin Tab feature is awesome.I suddenly can't change any of my options though.Anyone have the same glitches?
Same problem here. Radio buttons are not working in options.
this is the buggiest release in a long time and i dont enjoy it.
I'm getting annoyed at video getting stuck between advert and video starting.
Bookmark sync is still not working for me. Clicking on "Synchronize my bookmarks.." does nothing.Is it same for everyone?
Is anyone else facing the same problem as me? The Sync for offline has been going for the last two days. Please let me know if you guys have no issue.
@Sam, When I click on Bookmark Sync the pop-up that opens shows that the bookmarks have been synced "Just Now"
I just keep getting constant crashes, I cannot last more than 2 minutes. I have been using Chrome now or many months and this is the only version that is doing it. "Whoa Google Chrome has crashed". Very frustrating and unusable. I have gone back to Firefox until it gets fixed.
Drop down does not close after selection on any web site....
Options/Basics/On Startup: can't enter website addresses to open on startup.
