That's (almost) a path to a Windows installer. There's not Windows update available at this time.

There are a lot of *.mht files especially in intranet site. A lot of my colleagues do not use google chrome just because it could not open *.mht file..
Chrome Team should probably take this issue as a priority.

More Support of files = More Users
More Users = More Feedbacks
More Feedbacks = A better browser..

Thanks for the Mac update! Please, please, please consider giving us the ability to control fonts and font sizes in the Preferences panel... Chrome is pretty much my browser o'choice on my Linux and Windows boxes and that's about the only thing at present that keeps me from switching on my Macs...

I LOVE Chrome on the Mac. Oddly, with this update I can't see any web pages. I can determine that they are loading using the developer tools, but the display in the browser is completely blank. Anyone have a suggestion for how I can fix this?

I was thinking of looking up some of them newspaper websites, but am glad I came here instead. Although glad is not quite the right word… let me just say I needed this after the incessant chatter in the media, and am grateful to you for articulating something many of us are feeling - even from distant shores. Please come visit my site San Diego City Directory when you got time
