    I think the old version of the bookmark manager was better. Maybe include an option, but the new way is really silly. Sorry!

    i cannot use ctrl+f to search a page in chinese character.

    whenever i type the second character, the first character will be automatically highlighted and the second character overwrite the first character, ie, i can always only search a page in one chinese character.

    please help.
    this issue has been around for some time already.

    What is the cutoff time for fixes to be included in a dev build? There was a fix in Issue 32845 (reenable Pin Tab on Mac) that landed on Wednesday 3/24, and it doesn't appear to be in this build.

    (I'd check the SVN log to verify, but the link appears to be gone, and I don't know how to make it manually.)

    @Matthew Tsang

    Ctrl+f if you add one blank space between characters, it's definitely like what you said.

    I needed a minute to see that the tabbed managed contains everything that the old one did. Not sure whether it's an improvement. I have some doubts whether the dogma "everything is the same tab" is sensible.

    More obviously, the favicons seem to be completely missing (empty sheet of paper for everything) in the new manager.

    Mac users desiring Pin Tabs: I went to to download one of the new builds; anything from late 3/24 will have Pin Tab in it. Chromium uses a different profile, however, so you'll have to copy your profile over to the new directory to keep all of your settings. I'll switch back to Dev next release.
