win7 64: "continue where I left off" still randomly refuses to work. This has been happening for many versions now. Chrome will start up with the start page instead of the tabs it had open on shutdown.

This version does not read my router. No wifi at all. Last version dropped it now and then.

Yayyy my international keyboard works again! Thank you!

gDrive isn't loading, just keeps saying 'hang in there...'

Better than crashing, but would be nice if it actually worked.

Joe Pas said...

I'm having the same problem as Marc. This build (and all of the aura builds) also breaks any of my extensions that have drop-down menus. Even so, I love the new interface and GDrive integration... when it works.

Alex Stabler said...

Most of the time this version is unusable. It takes ages to load web pages (most of the time) and sometimes it doesn't even start loading them.

Justin Willhite said...

I am getting the same issue with GDrive, just getting the 'hang in there' message and nothing ever loads.

Google Music will not display on this version on my CR48. I can't see what music I want to play. Weird.

For the last several builds, memory use has become an issue. Some pages that I leave up for a few days (CNN being a big one) tend to keep growing, getting over 800M and causing significant lag. I have to close those tabs from time to time in order to keep memory usage from getting out of control. I have also encountered it over much shorter time range. I was browsing around on IMDB and over the course of less than an hour, the browser became extremely laggy. I went into the task manager and saw that it had grown close close to 1G of memory use.

I echo Joe Pas.
Even though I am on the Beta Channel, Google needs to please fix the rendering of pop up / pop down bubbles from installed extensions.

It is impossible to use the G+1 button, G+ Notifications, and two other extensions i use daily for productivity.

Please fix these extension bubble rendering issues at your earliest convenience. And if possible when fixed, please push to the Beta Channel as well.

I switched to the developer channel a couple of updates ago to get the Aura treatment.

Everything was fine until this update. Pages will sometimes load slowly, but actually the biggest problem is switching between tabs - results in a grey and white checkerboard on the old tab when you return to it.

Also, often Google Drive isn't loading from the native tab.
