I have noticed in the last release that there are no more crashes. Google you are finally getting it right. Also this release seems to be even faster loading pages. Internet Explorer 10 thinks its fast but still not close to google chrome. Great job guys.

Argh!!!

So when are the regular Chromebooks going to move beyond release 21?!!
We're on the Stable release and watching the Dev and Beta release channels get updated, and every other platform including the new Chromebooks, but not old!

Are we going to jump to version 23 soon on the Stable channel?

The pepper flash plugin doesn't respect my Sound 5.1 settings on old, Stereo YouTube videos. I've to disable it and enable only the normal Flash plugin. Windows 8 64bit - Creative X-Fi Sound Card.

@Josh Hunt: see here. Basically it's a plugin for Internet Explorer that allows websites to be rendered with the Chrome rendering engine.

@Deo eτ Paτria:
I have been complaning about this for 3 months! But nothning is done.

All chrome version: stable/dev/beta the same thing.

@Rob Alm, I see... Thanks! It's only a ~week that I eventually went from Firefox to Chrome and trying to see what's going on.

I have an other question and I'd appreciate if you knew something... Mozilla on Windows 8 is blocking AMD Catalyst Drivers 12.8 and above. I see on Chrome, Hardware Acceleration is working normally, ain't no blocked. How so? The specific driver problems do not affect Chrome's Hardware Acceleration?

Anyway, thanks again!

With this update Chrome is now consistently crashing/locking up my MacBook Pro running OS 10.6.8. I'm one of dozens desperately posting in the user support forums but there doesn't seem to be any help forthcoming. Any suggestions?

PepperFlash has an update?

I am still having the same issue than with previous releases of Chrome 23 with audio on Windows: Flash does not detect a change in the default audio device and does not switch. It was working fine in Chrome 22 (and its bundled Flash player).

Looks like the same problem than :
