Twitter is still extremely sluggish to use and as for the cleartype issue it has been fixed but the font is wayy too bold now (if you compare to Chrome 14 or 15 you can see it clearly).

WinXP SP3.

Thanks Google Dev Team!

Can't use --new-tab-page!
Anybody have way to fix!

N.T. said...

it opens all bookmarks when I click on the bookmark folder!! (not all folder, but half)

Fox E: said...

Kick95 is right, --new-tab-page is now just a blank white page on winxp home, though there's still html and stuff in there.

Mr. Govindan,

There is still the ClearType/font antialiasing issue. I can't use after version than 16.0.891. Because rendered-texts makes it difficult to reading and hurts my eyes. Could you fix it, please? if this is a new feature, can be optional (in options menu or command-line).

16.0.891
16.0.899

I have same problem like "ilkertezcan " (Win XP SP2)

A7med said...

still scrolling in twitter is so slow

Alex said...

Still can't use Twitter at all, scrolling is appalling.

Claus said...

Text, especially bold-weighted one, looks blurry. Pretty much on any page.

Ghardas said...

Twitter is still wrong, scroll issue, rendering... unusable at all

Spindel said...

I still have to use IE9 for Twitter.com. Come on! :(

M said...

Bring back the + plus sign on the new tab icon! It looks so empty now.

DeD MustDIE said...

I have same problem like "ilkertezcan " (Win XP SP3). Blurry fonts.

dezso said...

Fonts looks blurry, doesn't respect the windows cleartype settings. If this is intentional, please add an option to disable this "feature". The previous version is OK.

sp47 said...

how to disable cleartype! its boring!!!

msi2 said...

With new canary (16.0.900.0), cleartype has been disabled. Twitter is still sluggish.

Unknown said...

Font rendering issue where large portions of text do not show up. Opening a new tab or browser instance and browsing to same page will sometimes fix the issue.

Mamdouh said...

Flash Player is causing many problems in the Flash chat sites
When you doubleclick on any person in Flash Chat There is a problem
iam not good at english but flash 11 is very bad

Kaushal said...

I like the way the + button for new tab is hidden and the way the + sign appears on hovering the mouse on top of it. It's elegant, clean, I like it :)

But I am still having trouble accessing twitter.com; it still has scrolling issues. I hate having to switch the browser just to access that one site.

Thanks!

REO said...

Possible Twitter.com replacement for monitoring tweets until Chrome is fixed.

No new Chrome Dev release? Twitter is still unusable, come on guys we need a fix ;)

Jacob said...

chesterman said...
