The revision log has more to do with the OS than the browser :)

Daniel said...

looks like it fixed a lot of stuff.

I know that the flash games on pogo now work in this version :)

It also seems to be working faster on loading compare to the previous version

Thanks for the hard work

Still feels unresponsive when loading heavy websites like engadget. Chrome now feels slow and bloated.

Daniel said...

just tested Engadget and it looks like that web site is trying to do to much on it web page so loads extremely slowly

Ahmad said...

Day by Day, Chrome is becoming bloated. I appreciate your efforts to fix issues and introducing features. Now after one or two hours continue use make it sluggish. Also Windows Live Hotmail keyboard shortcuts don`t work in Chrome also make some shortcuts for .net and .org domains just like Mozilla Firefox. Overall awesome browser.

Bring back -Phantom Tabs-

Please fix the CSS inset box-shadow bug. The web design community is jumping on this technique really quick and a lot of sites are starting to look less polished with this bug.

Thanks,
Jordan

I think I found out what's making Chrome so unresponsive. Its the Adblock extension. I disabled it and chrome was back up on its feet.

I wish the guy who makes Adblock Plus for firefox made a version for chrome.

my.msn.com still doesn't work correctly in chrome. This hasn't worked since chrome 6. Its annoying having to load up IE to view my news feeds. many others are having problems with microsoft websites that used to work in chrome 6 and lower

When are we gonna see Chrome 64 Bits in Mac OS X ?? Firefox 4 is now 64 bits.. I think it's time for Chrome too!

@Kenny, the last time I looked, the AdBlock Plus guy (Palant) wasn't too keen on the job. Turning off the extension seems to be the solution for quite a few folks.

Juan Tapulan said...

@Kenny You can try AdThwart https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/cfhdojbkjhnklbpkdaibdccddilifddb

@Guys who complain about slow loading; it's engagdet has so many 3rd parties. Try notscript and it will feel much faster (and secure)

Jonas N said...

Note that you don't need to use notscript if all you want is to blacklist a domain from using scripts. Just use Google Chrome's built-in content blocking features.

ThomasH said...

THANKS !! for built in PDF viewer. This is awesome and the best new feature in ages. It is super fast and works well. But it would be nice to be able to rotate the PDF, that's probably the only reason to still open a PDF in Evince or AdobeReader.

Hi, I'm a beta tester. I love the chrome. I have 2 favours to ask. Could you please put in a option for the zoom. I would like the the chrome automatically change zoom level for every new websites at whatever the user choose the zoom level as a default please? I'm profoundly physically disabled and my eye sight isn't good, so I would find that option very useful instead of keep pressing ctrl+.
Always could you please add password importer, so I can import passwords from other browsers, like firefox?
Thanks,
Tony Cook

google chrome needs a better history manager 1) it doesn't have nothing the only thing you can do is to delete all the history or select one by one 2)it doesn't have an option to delete the last day or somthing like that. have some things good but some is so sucks(password-history manager) this to things and the extension manager on firefox are so cool. if chrome have this things it gone be amazing.

hortatoi said...

my mistake the history it's ok
the password and extension manager is bad

Poquer said...

Flash videos not working... :(

Juan Tapulan said...

@Tony Re: default page zoom, it's already in the Dev (9.x) version, Tools > Settings, Under the Hood, Web Content > Page zoom

Hello. Chrome is great but when I go to Myspace to listen to albums it does not work. At first I thought it was my computer but I went refinedhype.com and tried to play multiple songs but it would not let me play any of the songs. I guess that means that is a Flash problem. Can you fix this soon!
