How do you enable google now?

Sgt.Sausage said...

Yeah will have to wait till next week, clicking settings on the Chrome Notifications icon in the system tray crashes the browser.

1) This build crashed with "--disable-sync" command-line.

2) Still cannot fixed spellcheck issue:

3) I don't use and want Spellcheck. Turn off spell check. Despite, Chrome downloading Dictionaries file to \Dictionaries folder. 9 mb! Even if it's disabled, why it's forced downloading?

4) About new diaglog style: Context background menu color is white. I don't like it. At least, add a command-line "disable-new-dialog-style".

I hope, Dev Team take notice of the comments.

Best regards...

last two dev versions on my Chromebook keep saying cannot reach Google drive retry when using the file manager, clearing/ resetting and rebooting don't help, bug reports filed, web works fine but of course have no sync or offline.

Seems new chrome versions use lot more network data ? Can we minimize network data usage, for 3G data plans ?

Vidhuran Harichandra Babu said...

Has there been any changes to the RTCPeerConnection object ? especially with the localStreams and remoteStreams ?

Vidhuran Harichandra Babu said...

Just to clarify things more ...

The LocalMediaStream Object looks like this in the normal chrome

LocalMediaStream {onended: null, readyState: 1, videoTracks: MediaStreamTrackList, audioTracks: MediaStreamTrackList, label: "JlI6TyshbKhRuwtM50F2dvhzX60pfX1VXwAV"…}

audioTracks: MediaStreamTrackList
label: "JlI6TyshbKhRuwtM50F2dvhzX60pfX1VXwAV"
onended: null
readyState: 1
videoTracks: MediaStreamTrackList
__proto__: LocalMediaStream

and it looks like this in the Dev channel

LocalMediaStream {onremovetrack: null, onaddtrack: null, onended: null, ended: false, id: "sWHnEwyoxPovgiAamNZwbcsJN8Cfmj6BdorL"…}

ended: false
id: "sWHnEwyoxPovgiAamNZwbcsJN8Cfmj6BdorL"
label: "sWHnEwyoxPovgiAamNZwbcsJN8Cfmj6BdorL"
onaddtrack: null
onended: null
onremovetrack: null
__proto__: LocalMediaStream

Is there any particular reason for this difference ?
