I hope this isn't too off-topic, but is there a FAQ somewhere that explains how Chrome versioning is determined? According to wikipedia, just making some updates and fixing a bunch of bugs should only be a minor version increment and not a major one - I'm curious as to why Chrome is done differently.

I have the Acer and my version is still 14.0.835.98??? I click 'Check for update' and it says it is up to date.

I don't like the new tab page.

It forces us to do more mouse moves, slowing us down.

If you do an usability testing (like firefox does with mozilla test pilot) you'll see that most of controls should be in top, as the things we click and we need more are in there.

If you put the "choose tab" in bottom, we'll need constantly move-up/move-down.

I hope you check this in the future.

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:

Can you please leave the floating bookmarks toolbar on the new tab page? It was so convenient.
