Haven't had any issues, except all of my flags will not stay enabled, even if I re-enable the flags.

notifications just display blank white cards now, with ZERO information.

Here, let me explain further.

I noticed that it seems only my extensions (Google mail checker plus, Calender plus, Twitch Now, tviggr, and Tweet Deck) will display these blank notifications. But, having an open Gmail tab will show a notification with information.

Here are the blank notifications I am speaking of http://imgur.com/HVWGK46

How about fixing the font rendering issue? https://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=137692

This has been ongoing for years and the ticket has been open since July 2012. The dev team admits it's bad, that it needs to be fixed, and that they are working on it, and then they closed the ticket to further comments with no further updates. It's terribly ironic that Google's browser renders Google's font library worse than any of the other major browsers.

Please do something about this!

Still having the same problem as the last Dev release:

Since the update, Chrome opens on my primary monitor only. I cannot drag a tab onto the secondary monitor, but I can drag an unmaximized Chrome window to a second monitor and then maximize it. However, when I do that, the context menus pop up on my primary monitor!

I have since tried uninstalling an reinstalling, AND creating new profile data. Neither works. A test shows that as of this writing, Chrome Stable works perfectly, and Chrome Canary actually doesn't have this problem either. Just the Dev channel.
