Beta Update: Translate for Linux, SSL fix

Google Chrome 5.0.342.7 has been released to the Beta channel for Linux.

We’ll be releasing 342 to Mac and Windows soon, but we wanted to get the Linux update out as quickly as possible to fix an issue with Google SSL sites failing with ‘error 107 (net::ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR)’ (issue 37722).

Here are the highlights since the 307.11 update:
  • Automatic translations and greater control over content for privacy. The Google Chrome 4.1 Beta announcement for Windows explains these features in more detail.
  • Really, really reload. A normal reload causes the browser to check with the server before reusing its cached content.  The server can decide whether or not the browser should use its cached content.  A force reload causes the browser to ignore its cached content and ask the server for a fresh copy of the page. Use Shift+Reload to force a reload (the reload keyboard shortcut varies by platform).
To get on the Beta channel, you can download Google Chrome from  http://www.google.com/chrome?platform=linux

If you find issues, please let us know: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/entry?template=Defect%20on%20Linux

1. pinned tab is broken
2. backspace doesn't work

Yep, lots of crashing on dev still. Mashable is the only site I can cause a crash, every time. The comment system does it, I believe.

Glad to see the privacy controls are improved though.

Can't wait to jump onto the Chrome 5 branch with betas soon. Good work, Googlers and community. :)

Is it just me or has the --disable-images option been removed in this build?

The translation bar is excelent, but pinned tab is broken and acidtest fails :(

Opensuse 11.2

I thought Chrome always did full reload, I've been holding Shift all this time for no reason!

I'm not sure if this is the place to report beta channel bugs, but as some others I'm no longer seeing the "pin tabs" feature under Ubuntu 10.04 beta 1 with this build.

This is annoying it seems that the beta channel is not being QA'd - pin tabs have gone missing. I orginally moved to the dev channel to get them - then they were taken away. I moved to beta and now they have been removed from here!

What gives?

Sunil R said...

lookn at the chrome betas. will there ever be an stable version for linux?!

Joseph said...

@Sunil R Sure, It's called Chrome OS.
