IE 9 PP#7 seems to have better JavaScript performance then Chrome 8 Beta http://goo.gl/ZDJyQ.. I hope that next beta/stable will beat that number.. Also is there any plan to include IE 9 and FF 4 in the "Other browsers tested" field while a new bug is raised?

This build also includes

* the new design for Task manager on Windows (Issue 63140).
* the new Software incompatibility detection system aka the about:conflicts page (Issue 60119)

Neo said...

"Open Link in Incognito Window" STILL does not work. Nothing happens with attempting to open links in a web page and from the bookmarks bar. Confirmed Mac 10.6.5.

Mike said...

Milestone 9 and there is still no native smooth scrolling. That's what we call "modern browsing experience".

Daniel said...

Feels much faster. Great release Chrome team!

Now, if only we could get cloud print and chromoting features up and running, along with apps, that'd be awesome!

slipstream said...

@Neo

This is already fixed on trunk, just a bit later than this dev update was cut.

9.0.587.0 dev = Build 66374, while the fix was included in 66457 (Issue 62022).

Lionel Bee said...

This update has been incredibly snappy so far.

REO said...

So far, so good...

Win Vista/32 bit

江添亮 said...

After updated to this version.
I find flash player does not work at all.

I checked about:plugins to make sure flash is enabled. It is enabled.

My Windows media player plugin suddenly fails - can't be activated, doesn't play anything!

Check e.g. this video page that would play ice-hockey...

Nicholas said...

I just had a BSOD... I just updated chrome, so i think the two are related, not cool. never fear I'll be back as soon as the next version of dev is out, going back to regular chrome for now.

windows7 x64, the bsod said something about dxg..dll so maybe it has something to do with gpu rendering?

@SoreGums if you want the memory dump file etc...

ichigo said...

All my flash player also showed miss plug-in, I can't watch any flash site, plz fix it as soon as possible.

ichigo said...

The flash player miss plug-in also happened on Canary Build 9.0.583.0

ADMIN said...

GPU acceleration slowed down incredibly. I use xp sp3. the results of the ie9 test drive, have dropped IE9 10fps.

Norbert said...

Now I almost can't use Chrome anymore: it freezes after a few minutes of normal usage on 2 different PCs (Vista 64bit and Win7).

And then on startup afterwards it also just hangs very often :-(

Good chance to check out IE 9 or Firefox 4, until the next dev release...

Kurtextrem said...

Everytime i open Dev Tools it crashes. Without About:Flags things enabled & no switches ....
This bug is nasty !

Recep Baltaş said...

I can no longer attch files to gmail mails.

Göran Axel said...

Disabling about:flags (GPU Accelerated Canvas 2D) made it possible to use Dev 9.0.587.0 for Windows again...

Benny said...

http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/performance/psychedelicbrowsing/Default.html is not working anymore.

Nearly all tests on ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/ don`t work...

bsee said...

Like many others, I find flash content does not play. Except, not all of it is broken, but the main content is. For example, on flash games, the trailer will play, but the main game just shows a black screen.

Greg said...

Having alot of problems with extensions not opening properly when clicking on them. Instead one sees a narrow sliver of a vertial scroll bar.

Artur said...

Is Google chrome going to support MathML?

Seven said...

Ever since this update, Google Chrome Dev locks up whenever IE9 Beta is run. To free it, I have to force close both applications.

Alan said...

I've got the same problem as Greg above with the narrow sliver, specifically with the AdBlock extension, but only (I think) on Ubuntu - Windows and Mac OS X seem to be ok.

Another Ubuntu-only problem which has just appeared with the 9.0.587.0 dev version that I installed this morning - only noticed on news.bbc.co.uk although there may be others - large fonts don't display properly. With the default font sizes, only the first letter of the headline of the top news story (which is in a larger font that the other headlines) appears, the rest is blank. By hitting ctrl- to shrink the text, the problem disappears. Again, only affecting Ubuntu, not Windows and not Mac OS X; and only this version of GC, never seen before.

pigbrother said...

1. The new build seems to mess up Windows 7 volume mixer, the Mute settings does not remains checked in a new session
2. I reinstall this build form scrath and the password sync feature is now gone, it worked before the reinstall

Handycam said...

Works great here on 10,6,5

mtygringo said...

I need to close Chrome before my ThinkPad will go into standby. Also, Excel attachments open very very slowly from Outlook 2007. Everything seems to return to normal once Chrome is closed. Both of these issues started with this release.

Fernando FerSoft said...

No good version, dont show videos in http://g1.globo.com/ or http://g1.globo.com/videos/sao-paulo/

Artur said...

Will Google Chrome support MathML?

ADMIN said...

Firefox is rendering the site even faster. How do I rate this chrome.

H.F.Kais said...

I con't attach files to gmail mails, too. and any more web sites, too. I hate file upload error!

Thib said...

Flash player does not work for some content either... No problem for Youtube videos but contents such as games are not displayed (Black screen)

David said...

I am having the same issue as Thib. Youtube works, but Hulu does not. Also, the flash settings manager thing doesn't work for me. I'm going to downgrade to the latest beta or stable release to see if that fixes it.

Alok T said...

Fonts on some pages look blurry and small.
Win 7 . All features in about:flags enabled. (for e.g. visit http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/ for blurry font)

Stuee said...

@David - I fixed this issue by setting Chrome.exe to run as administrator.
All the content that wouldn't work before now works, as does the settings applet thing.

Hope this helps :-)

dbone said...

flash manager wouldnt let me set local storage options....after pandora didnt work, and told me i had to enable local flash storage

i restarted chrome and for some reason pandora worked again...odd

伽藍之洞 said...

I have trouble with the Flash 10,1,103,20.
It is always crash, but can work in YouTube....

If I change to 10,1,102,64, there is no problem. Now I cam play Flash game and watch www.nicovideo.jp/.

Maverick said...

I get BSOD sometimes and other times Chrome freezes when on flash websites such as youtube

jjoseph said...

Confirmed @Stuee if you run as administrator all of the Flash problems go away. Thanks!!

Katjica said...

White flashes on reloading the page or scrolling down. Annoying! I've noticed the same problem with earlier dev versions (I personally didn't have this problem before).

Using Chrome for Mac

goliva said...

On this build the flash player is failing
As reported by several people above.
I simply had to disable the build in flash (gcswf32.dll) , to work again, probably this will be fixed on the next release

multiple rundll32.exe left behind after exit.

mtygringo said...

I agree with the multiple rundll32.exe issue. I believe that may be part of the problem why my laptop will not standby while chrome is running.

Michael Tan said...

I can no longer attch files to gmail mails.

Spoaller said...

Lots of crashes, lots of weird errors. Flash Player doing badly. And another weird Chinese error, don't know where that comes from.

williamlweaver said...

9.0.587.0 dev
Pandora error - "The Flash local storage is currently disabled and must be enabled to use Pandora." when loading www.pandora.com page.

Chrome built-in flash player not compatible?
