Other than that, thanks for the new update!

The PDF Document in certain websites still cannot load properly. Starting from version 8.0 onwards and it cause miserable for someone's who need to access and referred to the article that are relevant for their study.

Please fix this issue as soon as possible and please ensure that the download button are attached beside the PDF document.

how does one get hold of the Chrome-OS 8.0.552.343

Ryan said...

Once I upgraded to v8 I have lost the auto download and open settings I set previously for PDF files, and the option to "Automatically open files of this type" has been greyed out. I upload and download a significant number of PDFs in a day and now have to select "Save" and "Open" each time, whereas previously I could select 10 PDFs to download and they would open in the background when complete. How do I fix this?

I started having have strange problem after this particular update.
It's blank page, - page is not loading, it's blank. It doesn't say that it can't be loaded, it's just blank page even after refresh..

Good work Google team!

I only have one niggle with Chrome now and that is that the "most visited" thumbnails used to only refresh the thumbnail pic to what it currently was but now I see it goes as far as loading a new pic within the actual account of the persons account e.g. Facebook,Gmail etc.

I preferred the old style.

Please fix this minor issue.
