The version info still shows "11.0.696.60 unknown". What does this mean "unknown"?

@Karen - in benchmark chrome 11.0.696.60 si slower then 11.0.696.57

David Newkirk said...

The control to restart Chrome after updating is labeled with the word "Relaunch" instead of "Restart." That's dev jargon; launching is for missiles. I strongly recommend returning to and staying with the usages "Start" and "Restart" instead of drifting back/inward to "Launch" and "Relaunch."

Does Google Chrome 11 has hardware acceleration activated by default ?

coy said...

just to report some minor issue encountered... still old icon on desktop shortcut, new icon already at taskbar. BTW thanks, I saw it already filed on the "issue entry". :)

windows xp sp3

After the atualization, all my apps and extensions disappeared. I lost many things... And when opening a new tab there isn't the Icon for the app store. Terrible.

After a certain time of use when trying to write a new page Chrome stops work and I have to force its close on my Mac (10.6.7)

Hi Karen: Other issues related to this release (fw warnings, installation path conventions, etc) are being discussed in Chrome Support Forum here if you're interested. PS - I adore Chrome. Plus, any company who employs Vint Cerf wins :o) -samg

oh and please keep this style you used, i mean the colors and the font style and overall look of the chrome website

it looks old and outdated

Tobias said...

Hi Karen.
Business Chrome (msi file) is still on 11.0.696.57 and not on 11.0.696.60.

Please correct this!
Thank you!

Since the update to verion "11.0.696.60 unknown" from Chrome 10, Chrome has become EXTREMELY slow, totally unusable... I don't know what it does, but when I stream music while surfing, the streaming gets interrupted... so maybe Chrome does something which uses/needs extremely much bandwidth. Using a 10/10 MBit line, Win XP with SP 3.

With regards

.60 significantly slower than .57. Windows XP. Tried to downgrade but seems almost impossible if you use googlepack, i.e. global install.
