Seems like 16.0.912.75 is still showing up as the latest (nothing to update basically), at least for the Mac.

Where is the final version of Google chrome to 17.0? When will it be released? Much delay and when I click on the Google Chrome it still appears in 2011 and 2012 are already Google is delayed.

@ Rafael.

Tomorrow (Jan 24) is exactly six weeks since Chrome 16 (Dec 13). Although I expect the Chrome team to miss that date (indicated by this release), at least we are not experiencing the Firefox 4 beta release schedule.

@google you ever think about doing LTS releases? Lot of linux distros support LTS releases to wide support. Chrome has always been about rapid evolution on the bleeding edge, but some people (especially companies) like to keep a little distance from the bleeding edge.

Why am I getting "zombie" pages that drain memory with the Linux version if Chrome is left open too long?

A triumph for address-sanitizer!

On Perl I just found one bug with address-sanitizer so far, but I'll keep searching.
Firefox looks promising because they just have a lot of bugs. Poor stack over there :)

I am experiencing broken images on certain website where some pictures do not load, even if I refresh the page I get a broken image icon. Also, I uninstalled & re installed Chrome and that didn't fix the problem, this happened to me with the previous version, does anybody have a fix for this problem? Please let me know!

Sometimes it closes without problems, but most of the time it freezes and crash all app.

Alexander Kuzmin said...

Chrome crashing at about every 3-d closing of YouTube tab. Arghhh! I think multithreading not helps with Flash plugin. I'm very dissapointed.
