How does this release contain flash 10.2, if that's only in beta and if in chrome dev 10 it's still 10.1?

Schultzter said...

Is Flash included in the 64-bit linux version?

It's not a good idea to release two versions of stable in gap of just 5 days. Were there couple of security issues/bugs/stability issues in the previous stable then the release could have been delayed for some time and could have planned a single release at this time.

William said...

Yeah @Mumjas,its a bad idea to get security issues fixed in swift and timely manner.
Chrome should take as long as Internet Explorer in getting updates,
Because that is clearly the better
Way to go.I rather wait months
Instead of weeks for things as
Trivial as security.

We need 64 bit Chrome for Mac! ASAP!

Rafael Fischmann said...

This version broke Flash for me. YouTube is buggy, some video players don't work and some videos are playing in black & white. What now?

vlad.apps said...

@William So true!

Salil said...

Its surprising that stable version has been updated to 9.0.597.94, but the Beta version is still at 9.0.597.86.

@salil
It is because the Beta version will be come version 10.
Anyone know if the flash sandboxing was added in this stable version?

MumJas said...

@William ou forgot it's the stable channel and NOT the Dev! Wont mind such frequent updates in Dev but rather not for Stable.

Lanel said...

@ Salil, Beta is at 9.0.597.94 right now too, not 9.0.597.86.

I have updated my copy of Chrome on three PCs to ver 9.0.597.94, and the download process took _forever_. This was on two separate networks, so it's not an issue of a particularly slow network. I have always thought of Chrome as a light browser, but something seems to have changed, dramatically, making this the slowest download for Chrome ever. If adding Adobe components into the core of the browser means that this kind of bloated download experience will be typical for future updates, that is most definitely a step in the wrong direction.

I got some problems with this flash player version and Vimeo videos (ex: black screen or "grey colors" when I pass from "site" to "full screen" mode and viceversa)

ps: Google Chrome Mac version

Just me said...

I also have the black/white video on Chrome for Mac OS X :(

Luke said...

Was Chrome OS updated as part of this? I'm assuming not.

graspee said...

9.0.597.94 is crashing often for me. I haven't managed to work out what in particular is doing it, but the frequency of the crashes make this feel far from stable.

Patricia said...

Flash is crashing ALL the time now. Why Google thinks it is a good idea to have a piece of software that is NOT designed to support tabbed browsing, and that is according to Adobe, I don't understand.

Using *this* update of Chrome on a fully-updated Mac (10.6.x).

So, this new release, while nice for security/etc., STILL doesn't fix the problems with the PDF viewer. As an academic, I use the EBSCOHost and ProQuest article databases - *neither* of which show up properly now that the Adobe Reader PDF extension is disabled. Both the above services worked splendiferously in Adobe; now, when they're showing the PDF in a frame, the frame is simply a blank, gray rectangle ...

And since I downloaded Chrome just this past December (right after I bought the computer), no - I can't go back to Adobe Reader, because Reader isn't loaded in this version of Chrome.

C'mon - you've had *months* to fix this issue, which is something that should never have been pushed out from Dev. Fix it already!

JmS said...

I'm confused: my Chrome Mac beta is at 9.0.597.83, says it's up to date, but the flash is still at 10.1!

How come Stable and Dev can get the update, but not the Beta channel?

JmS said...

Never mind. It was some bug with my Beta updates never coming through. Flash at 10.2 and all is well after a new download of Chrome beta.

I have been experiencing a lot of crashes in Chrome lately and I use the latest stable version (9.0.597.98). I don't even see these kinds of crashes in Canary.
I wonder could be the problem?
