Chrome is still crashing instantly at startup for me on MacOS. I'd raise a bug, but I know from past experience that it's pointless. The only bugs that get triaged and addressed are those raised by Chrome developers and other Google employees. All others get ignored. In fact, I really don't know why you bother inviting bug reports on every post on here.

Where's the new download bar?

Fabio_Rulez said...

Profiles are really nice... but it would be great if you can protect profiles with passwords (to be asked, if desired, when switching them).

If you agree please vote for this issue:

On Windows7 , am still seeing crashes when closing tab.

Josep Bel said...

I don't understand it. I'm making a simple web with a text field and with that version I cannot write on it! (¿?)
The other browsers works fine!

Josep Bel said...

I'm so sorry. It's my fault. Forget before message :-P

M said...

Everytime I get a sync error, I put my password back again, it goes synching and never stops. That is happening for a while now, please fix this annoying sync issues.

I can't found the new ui of download after enable it in the chrome://flags tab.

Nothing happens until i go to the Download tab and see that there is the file already downloaded and I didn't do anything.

Javiero said...

I didn't notice the new arrow that appears when you go back with the new gesture.
It's really nice.

It would be nice if you add the autocorrect functionality of Lion to the mac version. That sometimes works and sometimes dont.

yira said...

just idea. it will be so cool when a password is require when another user profile is activated

Sometimes apps from another valid users profile show up on my profile "new tab" apps page. and yesterday, once when I loaded gmail, it showed me gmail from other profile person (gulp). I hit reload of page, then it correctly showed me my gmail. Please fix this

Looking forward to getting the old NTP back. Why would you split one page into 3? The bookmarks bar replacement is awful. I thought google was about making things more efficient, this needs to be fixed immediately.

Saravana Kumar said...

I equally hate the ntp

Cody said...

ISSUES WITH REDESIGNED NTP:
- Cluttered (many buttons, pages, submenus)
- Slow (3+ pages instead of 1)
- Counter-Intuitive (new tab "page" not "pages")
- Incohesive (hides 2/3 sections, encourages bookmark-app debate)

SUGGESTIONS TO IMPROVE CLASSIC NTP:

(1) Combine Apps and Most Visited (see Opera):
- Clean (1 main section)
- Fast (1 page, all sections visible)
- Cohesive (equates apps and websites)
- Still touch-friendly

(2) Shift bookmarks bar to top of NTP, and remove the grey background:
- Clean (white space between bookmarks and speed dial)
- Intuitive (bookmarks are in same part of window regardless of enabled/disabled bookmarks bar)

Thanks for fixing issue 92669!!

Dawnrazor said...

Fixed the issue closing tabs under Linux but now it regularly crashes when I click on links from Digg or Daily Rotation among other sites.

Most of the time reloading the page won't fix the problem either. It's bad enough I've had to go back to FireFox for the moment

Danny Bowen said...

My CR-48 hasn't yet detected the update...

FREEWILLY said...

I'm with them, don't take my download bar away from me man!!

Kurtextrem said...

Hm, in about:plugins is a new flash version 10.3.200.202 ... if i enable them next restart it's disabled but it seems to load really really really faster than the normal flash player. But why does it disable itself?

Dogan said...

this release is crap. new tab page freezes every time when i open chrome. i had to change start page to about:blank. but still when i open a new tab it freezes again. so i switched to firefox. why this bug still exist?

Kenny Strawn said...

Issue 92771 fix confirmed: Now able to close tabs just fine.

Also confirmed fix for Issue 93663 (which I reported): Now able to pin tabs without a problem and have them be saved when the browser is opened again.

Prabab said...

I'm using the current (AKA Old) download bar. Whenever I click to download something I can see that it it being downloaded in my DOwnloads folder. However, it takes a while for the downloads bar to appear and for it to go on the downloads page.

This has been happening for a couple dev releases.

Win7 64-bit.

Fractal said...

Could you also update Chrome for Chromebook? There is a memory issue (chromium-os:19361) that should be solved but is not yet present in dev-channel for Chromebooks.
Thanks

mtygringo said...

Is it just me or do some pages seem to take much longer to load? I have noticed this on the last several Dev releases.

REO said...

@mtygringo ...and you are on 'what' platform???

It's of very, very, very little help when people post issues and then never indicate which platform they are on?

Those type of comments are a total waste of time for both the Dev Team and others viewing these posts.
