Thanks for the quick fix on the address bar focus - you guys really do listen to the users!

The TouchPad scrolling really flys now, maybe a little to much for me.

If your chrome fails to update read this bug for workaround and details.

I also prefer the scrolling behavior of the previous build. I believe the scrolling settings to be a subjective thing, any possibility of having this setting configurable in options?

i would like to see a history "history" if you know what i mean.
something like
2008 2009
01 02 03 ... 12
01 02 03 ... 28-31

every subcategory to appear when a above category is clicked. that would pe much in the chrome style, clean and easy.

the history being so hard to browse is the only thing that's keeping me from uninstalling firefox.

and i HATE that.

ok the scrolling is WAY TO FAST, it was great how ti was before they updated. It scrolls to fast for any reasonable use. 5 lines is to much. This is annoying and reason to stop using the browser, which i really dont want to do because of the speed. But the scroll speed is just to much.

Don't know if someone asked for it already, but some sort of smooth scrolling option would be welcome. :)

I don't know why but Acid 3 test fails in my Google Chrome installation (build It scores 100 out of 100 but the page also says that 'Linktest Failed'. Any clue?

Debsuvra: Obviously the linktest failed. Click the "A" for details on failed/slow tests.

That happens for me too so it's not unusual. Webkit may update to fix it.

@ The MAZZTer But latest webkit nightly does not fail on linktest.

Please send my bookmarks to the clouds.

I use multiple computers and keeping bookmarks up to date is close to impossible.

Why should I need to store bookmarks on specific computers?

(If this isn't the right place to post this request, sorry. It's what I found by Googling.)
