Is the checkerboard pattern in the background really necessary? I really dislike it.

"Oops! Google Chrome could not find new.crbug.com" :(

Anyway, third or fourth beta in a row with severe issues regarding tabs and what's show.
When opening a new tab, Chrome displays the content of an old tab recently closed or on odd occasions it shows only a blank page (but the content is still there as I can 'detect' links with the mouse).

To 'fix' this you need to go back and forth between a few tabs.

Surely more people are affected?
