Unfortunately, the bug with the Windows 7 taskbar is still there.

For those of you who don't know about this: If Chrome is pinned to the Taskbar and you launch it from there, another icon appears in the taskbar, being the active one.

Aviramof said...

Is that all?26 days and only two updates for windows users which are most people i guess i'm a bit dissapointed i got to say that.

NonreligiousNerd said...

The windows taskbar bug is still there!

hex said...

I'm with Aviramof. All that time and only 2 bugs fixed.

Matt said...

Extensions enabled for Mac again. Wooo!!@#%#

Also, It's great finally having Pin-Tab. Thanks guys!

marcsalvat said...

omg taskbar bug still here...

cmm said...

When I updated it seemed to say that I was now on the stable channel. I ran the channel changer an am now back on dev. Also got reset my theme to the default..

raducu83 said...

Why so few updates after 3 weeks???

Cute Farmer said...

Come on guys. The Holidays. I'm happy that my Chrome is still STABLE. That's enough.

jkorr said...

so the taskbar bug isn't a "Known Issue"? it's really annoying

Philip Kahn said...

Sigh, I too was hoping for a fix to the taskbar bug. Well, hopefully a new build soonish for that one ... See bug 28104.

gerickson said...

New issues (I'll post these in the issues database):

1. Try scrolling up when you're at the top of a page.
2. Google Alerter will no longer install (not sure if this applies to other extensions, as well).

NDA said...

It isn't mentioned in the release notes but on the Mac version there's also the Task Manager.

Afaik this is a new thing for Chrome and the feature was only available in Chromium starting with version 4.0.268.0 (34180).

nda

krtulmay said...

If this is a Dev channel update, why does Wrench menu > About Google Chrome and about:version say "4.0.288.1 (Official Build 35555) stable" ?

Shouldn't they say "dev" instead?

Thanks for the update, guys!

JuL said...

No auto-upate from 4.0.266, is there something wrong ?

Mikey said...

FIX: Windows 7 Taskbar

--> Unpin from Taskbar
--> Repin to Taskbar

= problem solved!

MRIS said...

I can confirm that Mikey's tip (above) solves the problem for Windows 7 Taskbar.

If you can't get it to work try this:
1. unpin chrome from the taskbar.
2. exit chrome.
3. launch chrome
4. on the taskbar for the newly launched chrome, right-click and say pin to taskbar

Nolan said...

Unpinning and re-pinning to the taskbar fixes the double icon issue, but the new taskbar shortcut no longer supports jumplists.

fhucho said...

Linux version seams very buggy. Google alerter extension is crashing and Chrome freezed twice.

JanuskieZ said...

Hi... Looking ways to market your blog? try this: http://bit.ly/instantvisitors

Ron said...

Hey! They finally allowed font settings to be set on the Mac -- I am surprised this wasn't specifically touched on in announcing this release. It's one of the key things that has kept me from using Chrome more on that platform...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, dev team!

Umang said...

oddly, many sites crash after they are fully loaded in this new build

multifernández said...

How come you won't fix windows 7's taskbar issues?

Pino said...

it gives a lot of problems using youtube. Now the HD button on HD videos doesn't work.

Ryan said...

Lots of crashes with this news Windows release

andrew said...

on the mac version

could you add support for ctrl + scroll wheel zooming in and out?

and 3 finger gesture for top of page and bottom of page plz?

tnx andrw

guerom00 said...

This version is funky with TextExpander on Mac… I had the problem with a previous dev version and then it dissapeared.
It's back. Hard to explain : the texts snippets are not inserted where the cursor is…

Lumo said...

If you haven't discovered it yet, try to right-click at any extensions icon in the taskbar, in this new version. You will be nicely surprised! ;-)

Helmore said...

My experience with this build (on Windows 7) is that memory consumption shoots through the roof. Could be just me, it's just something I noticed. As others have already mentioned, the taskbar button is not really working as it should.

Thanks for all the other work though, I really like Chrome.

Gmail is not loading! Whats the prob?

Guto Bernardo said...

Orkut is not working!
It says to refresh the page, but nothing happens.
On other browsers is ok.

Kratos said...

The Windows 7 Task bar icon issue can be resolved by unpinning the existing Google Chrome Icon fro the taskbar and pinning it again.

Giaco said...

I have 0x80070002 error when I want install Chrome from dev channel.

Fabio_Rulez said...

there still miss a way to choose the order of browser actions... please vote http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=26990
thank you!

Aviramof said...

browser crashes when i try to create shortcut on desktop with create application shortcut v only on desktop.

Aviramof said...

and when i open one of this shortcuts i don't see the browser top toolbar this need to be fixed if you can.

kikke said...

Transparency is gone with custom themes.
https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/immljcnndlfdiajkpggdjbikmnibdhhi

George K said...

Confirming kikke's bug. The custom theme I was using (which had a transparent window border before the update) lost transparency when I updated. I tried dozens of other themes after the update and all of them had their transparency support disabled.

R a y said...

PLS FIX the high latency problem....

in chrome 4 i have 500ms this is horror-.-

Brian said...

After reading the beatdown you're taking in the comments I wanted to pop in here and say thank you so much for the work you're doing! Amazing job on the Mac platform & browser in general -- Chrome has now officially replaced Firefox as my browser of choice (tm).

Great work, keep it up because some people really do appreciate it!

Sam I Am said...

Is Chrome on its way to have the option of deleting all cookies, history, etc upon exiting? And also, a built-in spell check?

Boy.Blore said...

In last one month, the dev channel for windows was updated just once with two minor bug fixes. By any chance are you guys planning to scrap dev updates?

MhdHejazi said...

@Ryan I have also lots of crashes until I stopped bookmarks synchronization!!
Try stopping synchronization and everything will work fine again..

Aviramof said...

Is there any chance that the mighty google company would put some presure on the tiny roboforom company they suer take there time with releasing an adapter to google chrome and i can't surf without my chrome and i'm sure i'm not the only one.

i tried talking with them and everything but no luck so far.

extensions auto-update not working

Keith said...

Silly amount of memory seem to be used by certain tabs if left open for extended periods of time. For example I came back to Facebook after leaving it open earlier in the day to find it alone using 1GB+ of private memory. (Windows 7 64-bit)

Matthew Tsang said...

just a wondering.

if i type abc and then ctrl+enter, it will go to www.abc.com

but if i type 123abc and then ctrl+enter, it will direct to google search page and search 123abc instead of www.123abc.com

is there any reasons for such difference??

thanks.

cmm said...

I've been on the dev branch since it launched but I am now going to downgrade to beta. For the first time ever chrome is slower than ff or ie (on 2 diff systems, one xp, one win 7 64). Hope this version gets fixed soon

oedo808 said...

Mac 10.6.2 - problem with extensions:
I can't close the popup windows from extensions such as 'similar pages' or 'google tasks' anymore. Pressing the icon only works occasionally.

Bob said...

@Matthew Tsang,

It might erroneously assume that anything which starts with a number must be an IP address, and thus does not get the www. and .com treatment.

MB said...

Crashing when syncing on xp

M said...

Hi, can anybody tell me or give me an estimation of when native client is coming to the beta channel? Thanx
