This is good. But I really wish you'd improve the pixel's battery life.

Thank you. You fixed my video on my Chromebox so it fills the screen and has no longer has an outer border around it.

Great, so how do I update Chrome? My Avast! prompted me to update today, so I let it do that but it failed and I got an error message telling me to try again. The thing is, there is NO link to try again on the error message nor is there any link I can find anywhere in Chrome's settings pages to do an update. Where is it hidden?

With this update, Shockwave flash crashes when I attempt to play Amazon Prime videos.
