The Chrome Team is delighted to announce the promotion of Chrome 38 to the beta channel with 38.0.2125.24 for Windows, Mac and Linux.

This release contains many stability and developer improvements including:
  • New experimental user switching design which makes changing profiles and into incognito mode simpler.
  • A new experimental Guest mode.
  • Experimental UI for Chrome supervised users.
  • Lots of under the hood changes for stability and performance.

Please move or make the new user switch button able to be hidden. The button sticks out like a sore thumb on Windows 8.

I swear with every new release I get closer and closer to going back to Firefox. So many bugs make it down to stable and don't get fixed until months or years later when they get public attention, horrible design decisions that make the browser require more clicks, bookmark management is extremely basic and doesn't seem to have been touched since the single digit releases (on that note, the bookmark manager could really use a UI update.)

The new user switch button looking nice,
but takes a lot of space from working tabs. Also this is not so ofter used feature to keep it in front of everything. Bookmarks as example might be more useful.. But as I noted this is
not best ui dicision, where is the crome minimalism paradigm?

We don't understand that when you updated Google Chrome, you removed the scrollbars. It sure would be nice if you restored them, if you please.

For those wondering, the horrendous problems with tab / display slowdown / crashing introduced in 37 continue in 38 beta.

Chrome is effectively worthless as it stands, having more than 2-3 tabs open causes the entire program to start slowing to a crawl, especially when opening / closing tabs.

I've had scrollbars and still do?

Should add hotkey to switch users, I'm on Ubuntu version 38.0.2125.24 64 bit and cannot switch to another user without my mouse.

Ctrl + shift + m show the user switching popup but cannot use keyboard to move up and down :(

Another +1 for the big fat "PERSONAL" button in the tab bar being a big step backwards compared to the customizable, clickable icon it replaced...

I'll go out on a limb here and say that a power user will take a small icon over a big, fat text label any day. So, please at least make this a toggle-able feature.

Also, from an aesthetic point of view, NOTHING else in the main / readily apparent chrome UI makes use of a text-based button: Hell, you guys have even done away with the text-based "file / edit / etc." menus! Why introduce a new element in the style you've been successfully eliminating for years?

Anyway; long live Chrome!

Agreed that the new user switching menu takes up too much tab space. It looks like we can remove it by disabling the flag here: chrome://flags/#enable-new-avatar-menu

There should be a Beta where everything runs faster.

Work from home theory is fast gaining popularity because of the freedom and flexibility that comes with it. Since one is not bound by fixed working hours, they can schedule their work at the time when they feel most productive and convenient to them. Women & Men benefit a lot from this concept of work since they can balance their home and work perfectly. People mostly find that in this situation, their productivity is higher and stress levels lower. Those who like isolation and a tranquil work environment also tend to prefer this way of working. Today, with the kind of communication networks available, millions of people worldwide are considering this option.

Women & Men who want to be independent but cannot afford to leave their responsibilities at home aside will benefit a lot from this concept of work. It makes it easier to maintain a healthy balance between home and work. The family doesn't get neglected and you can get your work done too. You can thus effectively juggle home responsibilities with your career. Working from home is definitely a viable option but it also needs a lot of hard work and discipline. You have to make a time schedule for yourself and stick to it. There will be a time frame of course for any job you take up and you have to fulfill that project within that time frame.

There are many things that can be done working from home. A few of them is listed below that will give you a general idea about the benefits of this concept.

This is the most common and highly preferred job that Women & Men like doing. Since in today's competitive world both the parents have to work they need a secure place to leave behind their children who will take care of them and parents can also relax without being worried all the time. In this job you don't require any degree or qualifications. You only have to know how to take care of children. Parents are happy to pay handsome salary and you can also earn a lot without putting too much of an effort.

For those who have a garden or an open space at your disposal and are also interested in gardening can go for this method of earning money. If given proper time and efforts nursery business can flourish very well and you will earn handsomely. But just as all jobs establishing it will be a bit difficult but the end results are outstanding.

Freelance can be in different wings. Either you can be a freelance reporter or a freelance photographer. You can also do designing or be in the advertising field doing project on your own. Being independent and working independently will depend on your field of work and the availability of its worth in the market. If you like doing jewellery designing you can do that at home totally independently. You can also work on freelancing as a marketing executive working from home. Wanna know more, email us on and we will send you information on how you can actually work as a marketing freelancer.

Internet related work
This is a very vast field and here sky is the limit. All you need is a computer and Internet facility. Whatever field you are into work at home is perfect match in the software field. You can match your time according to your convenience and complete whatever projects you get. To learn more about how to work from home, contact us today on workfromhome.otr214427@gmail.comand our team will get you started on some excellent work from home projects.

Diet food
Since now a days Women & Men are more conscious of the food that they eat hence they prefer to have homemade low cal food and if you can start supplying low cal food to various offices then it will be a very good source of income and not too much of efforts. You can hire a few ladies who will help you out and this can be a good business.

Thus think over this concept and go ahead.
