          Thank you SO much for this.

          Agreed. Chrome 3 should be released as a stable version. We're 2 whole versions ahead of the current stable version.

          But, more on topic, there are a few good bug fixes here. Good job, keep up the good work.

          This build has introduced an annoying issue on my Linux system. I scroll with the down/up buttons, and If I hit the up button while the page is already at the top, the control goes from the page to the URL bar. Hitting the down button keeps control in the URL bar, giving me similar URL's. So if I want to scroll to the top of the page, I have to let off of the up button at just the right point to keep control on the page.

          Is it just me, or does V8 seem a bit laggy for some reason?

          On both my Macs, this last build introduces a serious colorimetry problem (not only on images, on any element): everything looks under saturated. Is it a Mac-only issue or does it affect all platforms?

          Several improvements:

          1. Giwe as more place for history in new tab page.

          2. I wana check how bookmark sync work so i install Chrome on my girlfriend PC and log to google count. Then Chrome import all my bookmark's - its OK, but then i delate all bookamarks (couse it was my girl PC) and i lose all my bookmarks from notebook. I no, its my fault, but mabe you can all some information when sync is ON, like "you want delate some bookmark when your sync ins ON, you will lose this bookmark FOR EVER!" :D

          3. Add to History of Download some options like "go to page" or "download again".

          4. Ther is problem in Polish language version - when I download some file I can't see how many time left to finish becouse name is to long. Can You fix that?

          Maybe You can build a cloud?

          Like this.

          Ofcourse You can change text and add some options, through this will be more opportunities.

          5. When I select some text and click right mouse button i have option "search this in internet". Good idea is second option: "go to this page" when I select www adres.

          6. When I click email adress Your browser should I move to with this adres. Now Chrome use Outlook but I don't use it and this aplication is from Microsoft. It's not good move.

          Sory 4 my poor english.

          THX 4 "CTRL + ALT + B" option!

          When I go to full screen on top I have alpha menu. Add there more options to attendance browser (next, previous page; adress strip) and automatically hide plugins stripe when Chrom is in full screen.

          Blogger REO said...

          Has the bookmark syncing disappeared with this release? This is what I have on my shortcut.

          People, seriously stop with the "change this option or i dont use this browser" shit !

          if you dont like an option, say it in a respectful manner and dont try to threaten google or the developers here.

          first of all, the multibillion dollar corporation Google give a fuck if exactly you use there browser

          second you embarrass your self

          Google Chrome need to improve based on below suggestion:

          1. Add an option menu for showing a list of extension application

          2. Add back the option menu for delete data such as history, cookies, cache, download list and so forth with an extra icon for automatic delete data after closing Google Chrome

          3. Enable the download list to detach from the Google Chrome itself and operate under an independent download manager

          4. Improve the operation on Acid3 to make it perfection

          5. Revert the new new tab page style to previous version of Google Chrome 2.xx as it look aesthetic and integrated.

          6. Make some tweak on the memory usage as it consume a lot after the Google Chrome use for a period of time

          7. Certain websites cannot load properly especially related to flash content...this problem is also appear in Safari 4 browser, possibly is the webkit that cannot cope with previous version of HTML 4.01

          8. Facebook chatting portion need to press reload button one more time before it can successful load the chatting portion properly...

          9. Some of the image become blank especially attempt to load Google image...

          10. V8 engine need to add more speed to make it perfection...

          11. Security need to emphasize as it sometimes can easily access to malicious websites...

          12. Safebrowsing attempt to use a lot of space after using for a period of time and cannot delete contrary, Mozilla Firefox did some good work in configure this section

          In fact, Google Chrome need to move rapidly as browser wars is initially begins and Opera 10 usage rate surge significantly...

          Please remove the link to set the New Tab Page as my homepage. The NTP is the homepage by default. if it is not set as the homepage, that means that the user (me) purposely changed it in the options and doesn't need to be constantly provided with this link.

          v4.0.206.1: I'm a TC in the Gmail forum, and this release has prevented me from responding to postings: each time I enter an response to a question, when I click on Post Reply it's as if the Forum cannot see my response and requests me to post an answer!! One other member reports that both 4.0.207 and even 4.0.208 suffer the same issue (so it hasn't been fixed in the next generation either!!)
