Flags are still broken.

I'm seeing a lot of rendering artifacts on Chrome's transparent tab bar.

Flags are working on my C7, but also seeing a lot of rendering issues in the transparent tab bar.

Lot of artifacts here to on the transparent tab bar and on the launcher on pixel, also when workspace scrubbing.

Looks like the latest DEV build break the ability to create Session cookie on localhost environment.

The black Google bar is gone! Please bring it back, or at least an alternative way to access all the services.

I'm still getting some youtube tearing on this version. Tried 720p, 480p, and 1080p Seemed worse on higher definitions and larger players.

Larry Mac said...

Why would I need a giant Google search box in the new tab page? And where are ALL my recent tabs? Four tiny icons is completely insufficient.

Google motto - we never met a UI that we couldn't make worse.

The DEV Channel update is new, but it still needed to be worked on. I'm using Spoken-Feedback on Chrome OS (Chromevox), but the new version needs to be worked on. I still have some issues.
Chromevox only read few of the contents on the browser. It didn't read elements properly. But the good news is; I can still surf the web. As the work around, I set Chromevox to read each word when reading text.
