Hey guys I have just updated to the new version of Chrome and it appears that there are even more problems with Windows Live Hotmail than before. I no longer get any response from any of the links when I click on them. I am not able to read or compose mail nor am I able to change folders. Just thought I would let you know. Cheers.

Gears still does not work for me in Reader or in Docs. Docs tells me i need to 'upgrade gears', but when i click the link it takes me to a page that says i need to install gears. ???? When I click 'offline' in Reader, it starts to download the 2,000 most recent items, but nothing happens, as the progress bar doesn't move. This was the same results for me in 154.36, so please take note of this all ye engineers!

Why is it that you can't see the download link on BBC's iPlayer for programs you want to download to your hard drive?

I upgraded on the Beta channel and now Chrome won't open again. When I click the shortcut, the window flashes open and then closes in half a second. Have tried with googleupdater.exe terminated. Have tried rebooting.

Another release, and chrome still has the worst spell checking engine of all the browsers. The suggestions it makes are very poor, often it has no suggestions, and spell checking doesn't work at all for many websites (such as google's own Very disappointing.

Unusable for me. I need to install somewhere other than drive C: and it would be awfully nice if the installer would ask.

Dunno how to file a bug report so here goes...
- Create a Google gadget that has a STYLE element.
- Use Publish to get the code to embed it on a web page.
- Embed it.
- Visit the web page with Chrome, using the developer debugging tool.
- Note that Chrome complains about the STYLE element living inside of a DIV (even though it's living inside an IFRAME inside of that DIV. Note that the IFRAME is generated by the Google code that embeds the gadget on the web page. :(

Quick suggestion. when using the universal search bar in query format, why not set shift+return to act as "I'm feeling lucky"? I know a lot of my searches that return the results as #1. This will save me the time of having to look at the search results.

Hi I have the same problem as Ben.
My Windows Mail doesn't work really well.
I know there are alternatives like Liviu mentioned, but I feel like Liviu completly missed the point that for a browser to be the best browser it should work in any condition. So far I love Google Chrome and the only reason I haven't made it my default browser is so it doesn't freeze when I click on my MSN (Mail) button.

I am not sure if the reason that happens is because MS recently (a couple of months ago) started using Silverlight for all their websites and weather or not Google Chrome is already compatible with it.

Anyways i'd like to leave a big thank you for the Google Chrome Team and everyone that's providing help to make it better. It surely is my favorite browser already.

Bug just discovered in trying to post an item for sale on eBay - something I'm sure the developer team know. The editing/formatting options (bold, fonts, colour etc) all fail to appear in Chrome, whereas they load fine in Firefox/IE. It's not even that they appear and don't work - the line of buttons across the top of the main text box just doesn't show at all.

Also, Chrome lacks Firefox's easy way of navigating around between tabs by listing in one table all the tabs currently opened. Especially restricting when I have many open, and the tabs squash up unrecognisably.

And, Windows Live/Hotmail surely needs to be fixed as a matter of urgency if this browser is to become more widely used.

+1 for Erin's comment. I have been experiencing similar issues with Yahoo! mail for the last week.

Now today, Yahoo mail is hanging at load time. The status bar says "Waiting for". I am also experiencing problems with several other ad-supported websites (e.g. Slate), and the status bar is usually stuck on an ad-related hostname.

Still can't scroll correctly in this update. Using Vista Home Premium x86 with the latest Microsoft Mouse software installed. Scrolling the wheel in either direction bounces the page directly to the top or bottom of the page.
