Dev Channel Update

The Dev channel has been updated to 6.0.453.1 for All platforms

Windows
  • Consolidated menu is on by default
  • [r50830] Show preview images when dragging images.
  • Printing from the built-in PDF plugin now prints vectors instead of pixels.
  • [r50617] Fix avutil-50.dll entry point not found error by limiting the DLL search path when loading FFmpeg binaries (Issue 35857)
Mac
  • Continued feature parity work
Linux
  • New experimental support for gnome-keyring and kwallet for storing your passwords.  Currently off by default; you can opt in via a command line flag and we’d love feedback as to whether it eats your data.  Please see this thread for information on how to test it (importantly, back up your passwords first).
  • Fixed overlapping characters sometimes seen with complex (Thai, Indic) text.
  • The PDF plugin is now available (turn it on in about:plugins).
More details about additional changes are available in the svn svn log of all revision.

You can find out about getting on the Dev channel here: http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel.

If you find new issues, please let us know by filing a bug at http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/entry

Now, how do I create an application shortcut?

People said...

Hi Google Chrome Team!

I noticed in this release that it is now possible to set website permissions from the 'Content Settings Bubbles' in Incognito Mode. Thanks for re-enabling this feature! There is a problem or should I say an annoyance, it has to do with the only option the Incognito Mode Content Settings can be cleared, and that is only by closing the browser. In addition to closing the browser window to clear those settings, why not also allow the user to clear those settings whenever they choose, by 'Clear browsing data...'?

In issue 44480, there's a merged issue that has a solution to the whole Content Settings Bubbles use in Incognito Mode.

Thanks for your time and have a great weekend and fourth of July!

I like the idea of making the browser look more simplistic but... What purpose is there for the now huuuuuge address bar?

Սահակ said...

it crashes on 64 bit Ubuntu

Diego said...

what about a keyboard shortcut for extensions now?? and for the options too...
PS: sorry my English... :)

Aw, man. I was really hoping that the stop button's icon would be fixed in this update. Oh well...

I like the consolidated menu.

Cougar Abogado said...

Dragging images is cool . . . but how about implementing something a little more fundamental (IMHO) like find as you type?

http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=150

Would you do it for a Klondike bar?

Lumo said...

Keith: the address bar is not "huge" for the people who actually use Chrome. Those people, like me, have 20 extensions icons on the right side from the omnibox, as we call the "address bar". There's never enough space over there.

Geoffrey Allan Plauche said...

The new consolidated menu lacks the option to create application shortcuts for desktop apps.

Gaius said...

I don't think the Extensions should be put in "tools" but rather, right under "History" and "Downloads"

Also, Chrome team, when are you going to allow us to clear browsing data upon exiting the browser, and allowing us to autoclose the download bar when it finishes downloading?

houtxone said...

Translate still not working on some web pages i.e. initial page of www.elnorte.com. Move to other pages within the site and it seems to work.

backwoods89 said...

The new menu lacks the web application maker as well as the ability to send bug reports to Google.

Something that really irritates me with Chrome is that it likes to show my web searches (e.g. google) on my most visited at the "New Tab page"
Please make it not do that :)

And, the History/Download links are too close to the bottom. Might wanna raise them up a bit.

Four clicks to change the encoding! Awful!

JaMacD said...

When clicking on "Choose File" and then clicking on the Desktop link or other links, nothing happens. This hasn't worked for a while.

Chrome crashes every Time if i logged in on web.de and crashes on chrome.google.com/extensions :(

Coolaaron88 said...

I am having issues with the latest bleeding edge version of Chrome. I enabled everything in Chrome Sync and it caused chrome to crash and now every time I try to disable it I dont have enough time because it continues to crash, is there anything I can do rectify this issue? I tried reinstalling it and that didn't do anything. I need to disable chrome sync somehow. Thanks for listening

Li, Quanjia said...

I think the enlarge function "+" sign should be on the right side

nhnl said...

@Coolaaron88:
Startup option --disable-sync may solve that issue.

Options to disable each items individually:
--disable-sync-autofill
--disable-sync-bookmarks
--disable-sync-extension
--disable-sync-preferences
--disable-sync-themes

@LZSaver,come on buddy, it's 2 to infinite buddy. If you just make one single change it's 2 clicks.

[r50830] Show preview images when dragging images:

@Cute Farmer, what is that single change?

Nice release, a solid, fast PDF reader is something no browser (or browser plugin) I've ever used has done properly, I'm sure you'll nail it.

A couple suggestions, though.

1) How about bringing back the link to create desktop shortcuts for websites? Please don't tell me you're dropping this feature!

2) I noticed the snazzy new form autofill menu, with links to add addresses and credit cards. Seems like a decent interface, but I don't know who will trust their credit card number to their web browser, no matter what kind of encryption it uses, without an option for a master password!

Back to regular login passwords like Email... One thing I would like is an option to set the browser so it fills out the logon getting you into the site w/out requiring a master the password, but if you want to view the password in plain text it first requires the master password.

netster007x said...

BTW, what happened to ghost tabs? Those things were really handy, especially if I wanted a YouTube video ready to watch, but not sitting there waiting w/ flash player.

The consolidated menu is great but it is missing the option to Report a bug or broken website. Win XP SP3. 6.0.453.1

Chris Jones said...

Print Preview was just pushed back from release 6 to release 7. I can't believe we're looking at 6 full releases without a basic print preview feature.

netster007x said...

@Chris Jones

You're right it is a standard to have a print preview in a browser. However, one of my favorite things about Chrome's development is the willingness to redefine what a browser needs (no real history manager for example, but incredibly useful features like incognito mode and omnibar came standard).

Back to the Print Preview: I agree it can be critical to have print preview, at least to know how many pages long a site is before printing. However, have you checked your print preferences for a preview option? Most printers I've used have one tucked away.

Justin said...

I can finally get rid of adobe reader now :). whens aero peek coming back!!!?

netster007x said...

Just noticed, where's the keyboard shortcut for the bookmark manager? Looks like Ctrl+Shift+B has been reassigned to enable/disable bookmarks bar. So the logical next step is to make Ctrl+B open the bookmarks manager, right?

how to create application shorcut????
have developers forgotten bout this?

Admin said...

Hello, Chrome dev team.
I have some problem in Chrome. I cannot get images frome Picasa to Picnik when I use Chrome v. 6.0.453.1 dev.(Windows7/32bit)

Thanks

Chris Jones said...

More re: print preview: The urgency goes beyond just knowing the number of pages, though that is important. With weirdness in web pages, multiple frames and such, you don't always get what you think you're going to get. How often have we gone to the printer to find 20 pages of the fixed part of the page on the left and right with none of the content in the middle? I'd like to know that this is what's about to come out before I waste time and 20 sheets of paper. I really do wish this would be a higher priority.
