These multiple fixes of the "stable" channel show one thing: the stable channel is as (un)stable and (un)reliable as the dev channel.After 126.96.36.199 or the current 188.8.131.52 (which will include a fix of minipreviews on blogger that I've been waiting for, for months), the dev channel should be promoted to the stable channel 2.0.I think there's no doubt that the dev 2.0 versions right now are better - and comparably stable - to the 1.0 versions. Google is losing the potential by offering most users an outdated version without such essential things like form autofill.
...what?The recent stable versions largely patched security holes, a fact of life in the browser game. Other than the apparent small crash-out bug, it has nothing to do with stability.2.0 is usually stable enough for general use, but that seems to change with every dev release. Not to mention that it's still feature-incomplete, especially with things like the extensions management system.
