Any web store hints (besides Chrome 8 being the first version capable of using the web store)?
I noticed the unicode support is slightly better, however, I still get empty boxes when viewing certain unicode characters.
Q: How is this versions' PDF reader different from the one that was included in Chrome 7?
URGENT. In my computer , the chrome is not working at all, i can,t open a single page with it. this happen after it upgrated to chrome 6.hope you will resolve this,
Omg, this 8 version is 2-3x faster than previous version - good job developers.
I liked last version's PDF viewer. better. If the background wasn't that grey more like a black or dark grey.
how do I save the PDF document?
The font on this one post looks terrible on my mac (in Chrome). The rest of the blog looks fine. Looks like HTML pasted in from somewhere (lots of Apple-style-span and explicit style attributes setting Helvetica Neue).
When can we expect a 64-bit version of Chrome for Windows?
Agree with Amit that the pdf viewer was around in the previous stable as well. So to say it is new is a mis-statement.Agree with Administrator that the darker background was more friendly.
Must add that the difference is that the ver 8 pdf viewer is sandboxed. The ver 7 one wasn't.
===========BUG===========I already said 100 times here. There is a bug that you don't repair: I have 400 bookmarks, and when I click in a letter (g, for exemple), in bookmarks folder (in bookmarks bar) Chrome doesn't show me my bookmarks that begin with letter g.This is the cause I prefer Firefox...It´s a pity, cause I said it 100 times HERE!I am tired to say that!
@qwe123123: the PDF plug-in has always been sandboxed. What is new in version 8 is that it is _enabled by default_. It's also faster and has a few new features.@Marcelo: this is not the correct place to tire yourself out reporting bugs! Please use the Chromium bug tracker.
@Marcelo. Here's a link to an entry form for the bug list Chris's talking about: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/entry.For a general overview of issues (if you want to get a general idea of how people file bugs, etc.), go here: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/listHope this helps.
Chris, to sandbox plug-ins we had to use --safe-plugins.If you're 100% sure that the pdf viewer was sandboxed from day 1, I won't argue.Even Flash is in the process of being sandboxed, IMO.Incidentally, the pdf viewer made it's first appearance in the stable of version 6. See this for example: http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=3413d3e34dda5cf2&hl=enTo my mind, there's some inadvertent misreporting about when exactly the Chrome PDF Viewer made its debut in Chrome stable.Coming back to the present, I briefly looked at the PDF viewer and haven't found any new features. I'll look more carefully!Of course, if you'll be kind enough to list them (without asking me to go through the changelog ;)), I'd be most grateful.
There's no link to the SVN revision log!
Sorry, I found the SVN rev. log.Amit, one difference between the old and new PDF viewer is that we can copy more text than was previously possible.GroupA, if you right-click on the page displaying the pdf, you'll get "save as"
Man Chrome is just so much faster than IE on my older laptop. Keep up the good work everyone on the Chrome team.
I should not have questioned Google's security expert when he said that the PDF viewer was sandboxed from day 1:http://blog.chromium.org/2010/06/improving-plug-in-security.html
thanks for a good information crome is best faster browser.http://vritesh.com
I found some PDFs cannot be saved while some can.http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=65305
this is great progress with the pdf reader.What chrome needs now is an ODF reader. Maybe even provide a link to modify it with gdocs.I assume these functionalities will be also land in chromeOS
Is there still no embedded pdf viewer in Chromium for Linux? I just installed 5.0.552.215 and when I click on a pdf link it just downloads the file. Then when I click on the filename in the download bar, it launches Firefox, which in turn starts acrobat reader. Is there any way around this?
Cool PDF viewer. But spell checker is still not working good. I have to click on every single word in text box area when I switch language (to underline spell mistakes).
Have tried previous versions of Chrome on my Vista SP2 64Bit machine and I am unable to close it using the top right X ? A major bug or just happens to me ? On my XP SP3 machine, works great.
I updated Chrome to 8.0.552.215 last stable release. But it doens't open any pages. Only shows blank page. When i type something in address bar it shows suggestions but can't open. I uninstalled and reinstalled, deleted data folder but it didn't work.OS: Windows 7, Firewall: Online Armor (Not blocking Chrome) Update: I added --no-sandbox flag and now it works. But it says "You are using an unsupported command-line flag: --no-sandbox. Stability and security will suffer." Is it safe to use Chrome like that?
While this is a big improvement over Chrome 7.x, 8 still fails on some important points:1) Some pages either don't load at all or load with missing images -- including ironically this blog. This seems to be exacerbated when you open multiple pages in tabs on startup, i.e. 11 tabs +. This happens even on well known sites such as nytimes.com!!!!2) Flash doesn't work everywhere.True Chrome 8 is fast -- but only if the page loads. Therefore should we count reload times as part of the page loading times????
Chrome 8.0.552.215 stable final release only works with "--no-sandbox" flag And it says "You are using an unsupported command-line flag: --no-sandbox. Stability and security will suffer." Why? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!
FINALLY!The ever-present problem of chrome freezing up when accessing gmail.com (http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Chrome/thread?tid=636c157ca0cd4261) has been fixed.Thanks so much, guys.
This is the worst I've seen from Google Chrome by far. Very, very unstable and slow. No plug-ins work, nor do images load. All websites are broken and do not display correctly.Sarcastically, the best of all, I cannot revert to my previous version. Google Chrome 9 is coming out soon and you aren't even close to finishing Chrome 8. Google, you're sounding more and more like Microsoft.NOTE: -This is for Google Chrome 8.0.552.215 for Windows Vista 64-bit.-8.0.552.215 for Mac OS X 10.6.5 64-bit is working as it should. I do understand this is BETA.
The update blog has specifics about the security fixes, but is there a way to see what's new in terms of 'featurs' for users?
Amazing work, truly impressive.
I tried to save a PDF from within the browser with right click, save as... and it corrupted the file somehow. Was able to download the same exact file in IE no problem. I also think there are many tools within Adobe Reader that need to be available somehow when viewing PDFs online within the browser. Perhaps expand the right click menu, or the zoom menu that appears on the bottom right (which is awesome, but limited).
there is a bug with google maps: if i use scroll to zoom in/out, after it i can't move map holding left button of mouse.
@Nick Same here, Vista SP2 32bits.
I am running Windows 7. This stable release won't install. It says Side by Side configuration is incorrect!Should it happen with a stable release?Previous stable releases are okay. But this version is giving me headache. I cannot get to install it.Hoping to find a solution..
@Pixel Buffer: The PDF viewer is in Google Chrome only, not Chromium. It works on Linux if you have Google Chrome, but not with Chromium.
hi -- is there a way I can revert back to the previous release? I was doing some development which integrates with Chrome, and it has suddenly broken, and I think I have narrowed it down to being introduced by the update. I would like to revert just to confirm that this is where the error was introduced -- then I can try to fix it.Cheers.
it still says that there is anew version of Chrome when you check for updates (then gives you an error) - Update Server Not Available error: 12I'm already on the latest stable 8.0.552.215Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.5
On auto update of Chrome to 8.0.552.215 on Mac OS X 10.5.8, i am getting a bus error (chrome is crashing) when trying to pack my chrome extension from command line. Crash reporter is pointing at Thread 1 Crashed:0 com.google.Chrome.framework 0x03912607 ChromeMain + 85310631 libSystem.B.dylib 0x9703d155 _pthread_start + 3212 libSystem.B.dylib 0x9703d012 thread_start + 34My build process is completely screwed. I am using this command from terminal:/Applications/Google\ Chrome.app/Contents/MacOS/Google\ Chrome --pack-extension=$PWD/osx/cloudmagicplugin@webyog -pack-extension-key=$PWDemail@example.comPlease tell me if anything is changed here? TIAParimal Das
Just tried IE9 beta. Sticking with Chrome.
the new pdf viewer seems elegant and loads faster, however now I can't define the background color!I like reading black on grey, I should have the option to choose the background color.
thanks for sharing, please visit me back
@Victor: try eliminate DNS prefetching on the under the wood section of options (uncheck it). this may fix your issue.
@Parimal: I am having the exact same issue. The new Chrome crashes every time when building extensions from the command line.Please confirm you're having the same problem to "vote up" this issue:http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=65645
Is there some way to get around the new in-browser pdf reader (which looks, feels, and acts like a crippled version of Adobe) and open pdf files in a separate Adobe window as I used to do?
No chance to view PDF files arriving from the Adobe Livecycle (i.e., forms)? What a shame... Chrome is such a cool browser otherwise!
I keep getting a lot of "Aw..Snap" errors after this update!What's happening!?
This version, 8.0.552.215, is now wreaking havoc with my right aligned tables. It's not allowing anything to the left of the table that's aligned right. So, now text wrapping left around a table that is floating right. I know I'm using old HTML and not enough CSS, but I have a lot of sites that do this old style and I'm screwed if tables can't float now.Please someone tell me this is a bug that will get fixed!
@Anthony: type about:plugins in the omnibox, disable PDF chrome viewer and enable adobe ones
> I am running Windows 7. This stable release won't install. It says Side by Side configuration is incorrect!Redownloaded the file. It's okay now. Thanks a lot.
Crash occurs when "clear all browsing data" via History -> Edit Items -> Clear all browsing data on Google Chrome v8.0.552.215 Stablemore info here: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=66658
It would be nice if you posted the versions of the current downloads athttp://www.google.com/chrome
