Chrome Beta Release


The Chrome team is happy to announce the arrival of Chrome 18.0.1025.11 to the Beta Channel for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome Frame.

Chrome 18 contains some really great improvements including GPU accelerating 2D Canvas, and enabling 3D content for older GPUs. More on what's new at the Official Chrome Blog and the Chromium Blog.

You can find full details about the changes that are in Chrome 18 in the SVN revision log. If you find new issues, please let us know by filing a bug. Want to change to another Chrome release channel? Find out how.

I like the new settings page flag, but the text seems a bit small (yes, I know it's still in testing mode).

Also, did the NTP thumbnail set smaller and centered? Why is that they look somewhat different?

Speaking of most visited site, please allow users to configure the number of most visited sites that appear in the NTP.

PS To my comment above... I got a little excited when I saw Tab Expose in about:flags but I saw it was only for Mac (I knew it was a flag in Chrome for Mac, but I thought it was been ported to Windows).

Omnibar autofills to a subdirectory of the main website...for example, trying to go to "facebook.com" after typing the first 3 letters it auto finishes with "facebook.com/videocalling" rather than the main directory "facebook.com"

Uggggh! The font rendering is hideous. Everything is super thin and makes everything look a different from Safari and FF. Why? Can I disable this with CSS?

When downloading a file, I need to click on any part of the browser to see the "save as" window.

This happened after upgrading to Chrome 18 (beta).
