Posting this in here too (dunno, if this is a problem with anything else than Arch or Linux in general):

For those still experiencing the random hangs: don't just clear the browsing data - create a new profile.

I removed ~/.cache/google-chrome/ and ~/.config/google-chrome/, synced everything back with Chrome's sync (thank god for this) and haven't had a single hang since.

Frankly, the whole thing even _feels_ so much faster now.

Archlinux: That here unfortunately does not repair the errors that pictures are not loaded correctly. Whether on www.sportbild.de (Pictures to the left of above downward with the mouse over-drive (of Wolfsburg holt Olic to VFL baut Spitze um)) or www.sport1.de or on www.wetteronline.de (rain radar).

Ah..It's a pepper-flash issue.
If I deactivate pepper flash and take the normal Flashplayer, then I do not have the problem.

Excellent work. I must say, although it was somewhat devastating while this bug was in full force, I haven't on the whole found dev channel to be less reliable than the others, which is pretty remarkable.

It would be a nice option for built-in "smooth-scroll" setting..

so far everything works ok with the new dev release. (Windows XP Pro 32-bit)

..keep up the great work.

Am I the only one not seeing Chrome icon when ALT-TABing? For me it's displaying some generic icon and it's hard to quickly alt-tab to Chrome.

Zsolt Tamás Gfellner said...

same here - no icons while ALT-Tab..
