The log of all revisions seems very technical, can someone provide a brief summary of changes in windows?
Also, do the revisions from the last beta apply to the dev?

Are there any new features in this windows version or is it just bug fixes. Expecting us to read the log od revisions is very lazy of Google

"Cmd-three finger swipe opens prev/next page in new tab."

Nice, this one was unexpected by me, but kind of useful :)

I am convinced that this is a more memory-saving version than which really ate a lot of RAM. Much better now - and faster when it comes to buffering in memory which doesn't occur.

Good job.

When I go up to the "About Google Chrome" menu item and open the alert box, the auto-update check remains at "Google Chrome is up to date (".

I am sure I am on the dev channel as the version at the top of the alert box is " dev"

Running the Mac OS X version. I also have Chrome beta installed on the same machine.

Nice update, now I can browse in one tab (scrolling, etc) while others are loading.

Before the update that would lock up interacting with a tab till everything had loaded. :(

Why chrome.exe is not digitally signed? I'm confused.

Is anyone having issues loading webpages in the Mac version? I have to wait upwards of five minutes for pages to begin loading. Safari loads pages immediately upon startup, but with the most recent Chrome update I have to retry and retry until, finally, the page decides to load. (It's not a connection issue - all my other apps have internet access.)

Any ideas?

It's a very good build but the history 2 extension has broken - empty list only.

....When will the autozoom and smooth scrolling implemented?

I know there are extensions... but they sucks ( and use lot of ram...).

Hell... is so difficult to implement a zoom% switch??? and i don't think a smooth scrolling is difficult... ( remember c64 silky smooth 60hz scrolling? was a 0.8 mhz cpu...)

This version, on Mac, creates dozens of “Google Chrome Helper” processes with only the new tab opened !
What's going on ?!

What's the likelihood of getting an rpm for the dev channel just like you produce on the beta channel ?

Where's the Kaboom?

The dev channel seems to have become much too reliable and stable recently - where's the browser go boom fall down?

We(i) demand(request) more instability(or even better, more shiny experimental features, please) ;-)

After some time running, Chrome does not load any page anymore and give this error : "Error 336 (net::ERR_EMPTY_PROXY_LIST): Unknown error." for any page I try to load.
Quitting and relaunching solves the issue...

This version is freezing my browser when I visit a site that has Flash elements. Also the windows telling me that Shockwave Flash crashed shows. I tried uninstalling and installing Flash again, with no luck.

I'll try to uninstall Chrome Dev and try the Beta, to see if it works....

I agree with imma, my Chrome hasn't crashed more than 3 times in the past several weeks. dev is too stable, despite their warnings that it will crash.
