RoyiAvital: Given Google Wave will make heavy use of HTML 5 (at least, the drag and drop features) you can be sure Google Chrome will support them!

I know Chrome already supports the audio and video tags, although I think those were dropped from the spec?

Can't wait for the Windows build guys!

There is a quirk with the default browser on Mac with this build...
If I set Chrome as default in Chrome, it makes Safari the default one.
If I set Chrome as default in Safari, Chrome is indeed the default one even though it says it's not...

Nice fixes with the themes :)

Hmm the sample extensions don't seem to have actually been updated yet, uninstalled and reinstalled the GMail Checker and it's still 0.1, and I don't notice anything different
