@Mark Larson

Do we have an updated WebKit version in this build, cause I'm still getting some layout/rendering problems even on YouTube.

This version still crashes like everytime I try to connect to whatever website. I can see it says resolving host on lower left corner of Chrome then bam...crash. Stable version doesn't have this problem. I'm using Pppoe ADSL 2+ connection.

Check your firewall settings for the GoogleUpdate util and make sure it's running in the background.

Thank you Lajos that was due to the firewall settings where I work.

Well, secondly on the issue that I have had even in stable version is loading of Java plugin. I have downloaded it half a dozen is never resolved... I notice the same in dev. version

The disk cache dir switch is apparently --disk-cache-dir=PATH.

Not sure why it's not listed anywhere except the source.

This'll be great for my Portable wrapper. :D

Hey guys, you should properly link the google chrome pages together.

The group the forum the blog, there is no obvious way to navigate around it. The menu here is ... empty?

Links to google groups while the help points to the help forum.

There is no link to the blog here. It does have a menu called "announcements" pointing at the blog but it is far from obvious and requires "thinking". lol

You are loosing good feedback this way.

I think google is working against IE.

MY gmail doesn't work properly in IE. I have many of the lab features enabled.

And it works fine in Google Chrome. So it's possible that Gmail team intentionally did something.

Way 2 go in the face of competition

What about fixing Chrome so that it can play network television videos? Right now NONE of the players are supported by Chrome. Also, when using multiple Internet windows the entire browser can be accidentally turned off losing the Internet sites. Explorer 7 doesn't have either of these issues. In fact, I have to switch to Explorer if I want to watch a television show on video.

There is a weird bug with the scrollbar. Click on an empty part of the scrollbar tray near the slider so that the slider comes under you mouse; then only the slider's upper half is colored.

Blogger Wesley said...

@theOne there are many scrollbar-related bugs, have you ever seen what happens when you scroll a SELECT with many options? The scrollbar just stops rendering properly, and all items your mouse hovers become selected (but only visually).

There is another GUI bug, I think it's present on all versions (stable, beta and dev): when a popup opens, its icon on the Windows Taskbar and on the window title is a frame of the loading animation stopped, even after loading.

Completely broken on Windows 7. Doesn't even load at all.

I can't edit the title of a bookmark (can't delete the title to only show the favicon either) or write in the report bug dialog area.

Tough to describe a bug when theres no way to write anything. This is the 1st time seeing this since Chrome came out.

@Alex since that's the latest DevBuild it would be pretty hard to update it. Thats the most current version available except Chromium builds of course.

There is a consistent bug when clicking the "Show all downloads..." link on the download bar that appears when the tab is downloading something. Chrome stops responding and sucks the CPU.

To Open pdf Docs You Have To Refresh The Page.

12:40 PM, February 17, 2009  
Blogger theOne said...

@Semyer: to open nearly anything that requires a plugin, you have to have the tab active. Otherwise the tabs that are in the background do not start the plugin and you have to refresh the page to see the content.
