Nice to see that side tabs now has scrolling

Alen said...

I can see Google Chrome 12 is kinda like Chrome 7, focused primarily on fixing bugs.

Nice job - Google Dev Team - Win Vista/32bit

David said...

Ehh. This new tab page redesign is losing functionality. I like having my bookmark bar only showing on the new tab page and now it's gone. I also can't figure out how to move these icons around or delete them.


It's cool looking but I have no idea what to do with it.

Saravana Kumar said...

good to see things moving in print preview :)

Boden said...

New tab page just says "foo" ??

Imfloflo said...

New tab swype with mouse is nice but need other tab than apps "foo" and "bar"

jzero15 said...

Not sure if i like or dislike the fade effect instead of ellipsis. but the experimental new tab page is definitely getting better.

Jonas N said...

Yes, the upcoming new tab page needs to have bookmark bar functionality. :(

That's one of the things that makes me dislike Firefox 4, and feel is a great idea in Chrome. It's usually only when opening a new tab that I want to browse my bookmarks, so it's an excellent vertical space saving idea.

Other than that, nice to see 12.0.733 fix the odd graphics corruption bug that I saw in the recent canary builds.

Good to see things going on in the Extension API with Panels support too! Many extension authors should be happy about that.

dmt said...

Everything it's working as it should. gmail, tabs, etc etc.
The problem is in your PC.

Just a suggestion from a layman, take it or leave it kind of suggestion. From my perspective, Chrome should not remain just another good browser but it should replace some other key apps. In Chrome, when we click on Options, Downloads, History or Bookmark manager, it opens in a new tab, which is actually great. Now my suggestion to you people is...do something and add some more features.

1. Since we have Google Spread Sheet which is compitable to Microsoft Excel, why don't you people bring Spread Sheet to Chrome? What I mean to say is...when we click on Speard Sheet in Settings, it should open in a new tab.
2. Similarly, bring document and presentation apps later on. If it works, well and good. If it doesn't, no problem. Experiment is in the blood of Google. :-)
2. The Omni bar feautre in IE9 is actually nice, why don't we do something like that on Chrome? As of now, Chrome is big, it'll become much bigger, alomost full screen will be browser.

The first two features will save lot of time to people and for those who don't have Microsoft Office Suite, Chrome web browser will be blessing in disguise.

Thanks you for reading.

The Twitter website, at least the old version of Twitter, looks bad in the latest Chrome release.

Only part of every tweet is visible, everything to the right of the poster's name is cut off. Only the next line displays again.

Ferongr said...

The change for fading tab titles on Win instead of truncating with "..." is very welcome.

The browser works well and is stable, so props for another good release.

request tab stacking and extensions' settings sync!

Jor said...

OMG, Print Preview! YES. Get this feature permanently enabled quickly!

Computer Problems said...

Google Chrome is much better compared to Internet Explorer.

Charbel Nicolas said...

Is it too much to ask, to make newly opened windows to be maximized? I know there's a workaround to add -start-maximized on the shortcut, but it messes up small resized windows...

Afer the update , chrome seems to run slower,then the last dev 12.0.725.0 , I don't know how to explain this but it feels kind of heavy , bloated . Did anybody else have the same feeling ???

PRINT PREVIEW NEARLY WORKS IN CHROME 12.0.733.0! WOOT!!!!

Now all that is left is for the Chrome developers to fix the Print button from the Print Preview tab (which is currently not working yet) and then I can print something from Chrome's Print Preview window.

dmt said...

@raducu83

Nope.. It's not slower. I got the same points as on the older version.

Was really hoping this build would fix chrome breaking other application repaints as its just painful using dev build under windows currently :(

Just updated to 12.0.733.0 dev / Win XPSP3

1. Bookmark bar is broken - looks like the icons' alignment is set to 'justify' instead of 'left'.

2. Speed dial icons in a new tab are gone: new tab is a blank, infinitely loading page.

3. Sometimes double-clicking the top bar with the intent of opening a new tab results in the frowny face popup which offers to kill the page.

Comment from 8:39pm April 13, 2011:
Problem (kinda) solved by restoring default theme.

William said...

Bring back t......the faded text looks crappy on the tabs.

beside said...

It's just me, or any one else notice how long does it take for bookmark bar icons to apear after starting chrome?

Duncan said...

I've noticed my Chrome doesn't update after a new version anymore. It takes a couple of days before the update shows here.

When I open the about Chrome window, it tells me I have the latest version installed, but that is 12.0.725.0.. so that's not right.

Is there a way I can force Chrome to re-check and update?

dquiros said...

scrolling and typing is slow. i can type a word (as it is happening now) and have to wait after typing for chrome to show the word on the screen. dont think i am this fast!

Victor Hooi said...

heya,

It now starts up on OSX Lion (10.7) instead of crashing right away! Woot =).

However, I seem to have issues actually quitting it. Command-Q won't quit it, it leaves the Chrome icon in the desk. Likewise with going to Chrome, Quit, it also leaves Chrome active. The only way to quit appears to be to Force Kill from Activity Manager. Has anybody else experienced this issue?

It'd also be awesome to see better integration with some of the newer features of Lion (e.g. Fullscreen).

Heck, it'd be nice also to see it provide the options of integrating HTML5 desktop notifications with Growl, instead of doing a NIH, but that might be asking too much...lol.

Cheers,
Victor

@Reggie:
goto about:flags and enable side tabs, then right click at any tab and select "activate side tabs"

Hmm, the print preview tab doesn't seem to be working without enabling chrome's limited functionality built-in pdf viewer.
When I attempted printing this blogk page, it just showed "Loading..." in the preview space for about 4 minutes, then it showed "PDF Viewer not available". Not gonna give up Adobe Acrobat X's functionality just for print preview >.<

BTW, still not liking the new hedious logo, give it some polishing and make it more 3D like the old professional one. The new one looks like a painted flat sheet of paper :(
