Beta Channel Update for Chromebooks

The Google Chrome team is happy to announce the release of Chrome 13 on the Beta Channel for Chromebooks (Acer AC700, Samsung Series 5, and Cr-48).


Chrome version 13.0.782.107 (Platform version 587.93)

Known issue: 18358 - If you disable the modem while attempting to connect to 3G (while the status shows as "Connecting"), attempting to reconnect to 3G mistakenly shows that it is connected. The network status displays 3G as being active when actually it is not connected. Workaround: Restart the machine.

If you find new issues, please let us know by visiting our help site or filing a bug. You can also submit feedback using "Report an issue" under the wrench icon. Interested in switching to the Beta channel? Find out how.
