Dev Channel Update

The Dev channel has been updated to 5.0.371.0 for Windows, Mac, and Linux


  • Geolocation support (Issue 11246 and many others)
  • Fixed bug where HTML5 audio/video elements stopped firing timeupdate events (Issue 25185)
  • WebGL is running inside the sandbox under the --enable-webgl flag (i.e. this no longer requires the --no-sandbox flag to run). Browsing with the --no-sandbox is dangerous and we strongly recommend that you not do it.
  • Changes to the Omnibox (e.g. the bookmark star has moved, icon changes, etc...)


  • See All


  • More omnibox reshuffling work-in-progress (Issue: 37865)


Known Issues

  • [Linux] HTML5 audio/video elements are not firing the ended event
  • [Linux] Right clicking "Copy Image" causes a crashe (Issue: 40448)

More details about additional changes are available in the svn log of all revision.

WebKit has been updated from r56820 to r57160.

You can find out about getting on the Dev channel here:

If you find new issues, please let us know by filing a bug at

Was the internal Flash updated, like you told you would do?

Flash 10.1 was updated on Apr 5, it's now a release candidate.

Wow! One of my suggestions was actually implemented with this release: moving the bookmark star over to the right! Thank you! In fact, I am extremely happy with the changes to the Omnibox and also love how new tabs seems to slide out of the existing tabs. Wonderful!

Nevertheless, I am still begging for the ability/option to open/run files (i.e. downloading them to the temporary internet folder) instead being required to download them, then opening/running them. Please implement this feature.

And, please bring back "Clear browsing data" into the Tools/Wrench menu.

Thank you for all of your efforts, Google Chrome Team!

Blogger Dogan said...

Why changed shortcuts? I used to CTRL+Shift+B for bookmark manager and CTRL+B for bookmark bar. And now there's no shortcut for bookmark manager and you changed CTRL+B to CTRL+Shift+B for bookmark bar.

Why? I really don't like that.

In regards to the changes being made to the omnibox, I filed this request for the content settings icon:

I agree with Chris about removing the content setting icons. Moving the bookmark star to the right has just further increased the amount of crap polluting the right side of the omnibar.

@AshMan You can still drag the icon to the 'left' of the http:// to your bookmark bar.

Blogger AshMan said...

The changing of Ctrl-B and removal of Ctrl-Shift-B is REALLY, REALLY dumb. It makes me thing that Google Doesn't have usability experts working for them.

A user rarely hots control-B when entering text in a rich text edit field to bookmark. As a result, the browser should initiate the BOLD action when the user is in the textarea, when not, the ctrl-B should do the bookmark action.

This is just annoying. If anything, they should have removed the bookmark bar hiding shourtcut.

Google, I'm disappointed in you.

So here's my question: When it comes time to update the Dev Channel PORTABLE version with newer DEV CHANNEL version, will it keeps all the EXTENSIONs I installed from the older version? How will this action, affect the Portable STABLE version?

I don't particularly like how the new tabs do that bounce-back effect now, the sliding is good but the bounce is overkill.

Ditto previous comments that the star should be draggable to the bookmarks bar and the bookmark shortcut should be ctrl+B.

In the address bar, you should use a line to separate the bookmarks bar from the other icons.
Or, you could change "Other Bookmarks" to "Bookmarks", and have a menu where you can save the bookmark, much like IE.

I can see the logic behind the Star on the right, it shares similar functionality with some notification icons and makes sense to group these together. Maybe just change the styling a bit to make it clear that this is a Chrome feature and not an extension feature.

Blogger Chad said...

I'm assuming they reverted the change to Aero Peek so they can make it work properly and then re-implement it. It wasn't drawing the thumbnails or window previews on mouse over most of the time.

I don't understand why anyone wouldn't want it? What is the disadvantage of being able to select a tab directly from the preview rather than having to bring Chrome to the front and then select the tab?

In any case, an option to choose your preferred behavior of Aero Peek would be great.

Your extensions and all of your profile data will be saved between upgrades. Simply install a newly downloaded version of GCP into the same folder (usually the default) as the previous version to do an upgrade. Please note that Google's internal update mechanism does not work in Google Chrome Portable because of the absence of the not-portable Google Updater tool.

Google does not and cannot support Google Chrome Portable or updates of it, please get support for GCP at forums int he future, thanks! :)

1. Seriously, ctrl+B for bookmarks bar, ctrl+shift+B for bookmarks manager.
2. Make it an option to have the bookmark star on the left OR the right.
3. I like the new position for the refresh button. It seems more logical to me.
4. Not too fond of the bounce back on new tab. It seems hokey to me.
5. A change that I'd like to see while opening a new tab: have the user-set "new tab page" slide in with the tab itself. Having the tab slide/bounce over while the page is stationary bugs me.

The bookmark shortcut is clearly a glitch & I'm sure the Chrome team get the point by now.

For the star, does it really matter that much which side its on? The click action shares far more functionality with the other notification icons than with the page info box, which I presume is Chrome's reason for moving it.

What logic do people have for wanting it on the left besides reluctance to change? I'm used to it already after a day, it's not a browser-changing issue like some people seem to be suggesting.

Blogger Chris L. Carnakis, Esq. said...

I truly don't understand the resistance to the new UI, especially the placement of the bookmark star on the right side. I had suggested this a while back, and I think that it's a welcome change. Now, most of the navigation buttons are grouped together on the left side; the UI is now more sensible. To me, the bookmark star's placement on the left side seemed out of place, and I would even accidentally click on it from time to time as a resulting of having it so close together with the other navigation buttons. Mozilla Firefox's placement of the bookmark star is also on the right side, and I don't believe that there is much argument about it.

Regarding additional UI suggestions, I would go so far as to say that I would appreciate the "Other bookmarks" button be moved to the far left of the bookmarks bar, and I would rename it as only, "Bookmarks." This would cut the size of the button by almost one-half. Now, all navigation buttons would be grouped together on the left side, and I believe that this is a sensible approach to the UI. In addition, I would suggest that the bookmark bar buttons be cut in size by approximately one-half. For example, they can just be a small icon button ("g" for Google) rather than the icon and the name of the link ("g Google" for Google). This would further simplify the UI.

I still must put forth the suggestion for Google Chrome to add the option/ability to open/run files on the fly (i.e. save them to a temporary internet folder) rather than only being able to download, then open them. I have this feeling that the Google Team will implement this feature (and, it may take some serious re-working of the way Google Chrome handles downloads), but I would love to see it sooner than later.

Finally, I must also suggest that the Google Chrome Team bring back the "Clear browsing data" option into the Tools/Wrench menu as I believe that many users would welcome this option. I usually clear my browsing data before exiting (or, if given the option, set the browser to clear all cookies before exiting). I do not simply rely on going Incognito to achieve this result. The other browsers include this option under one of their menu bars as well as in their options area. Redundancy is good. :)

I am passionate about this browser and have been since Google first released it. I take the time out of my busy schedule to make suggestions on this blog in an effort to help make Google Chrome a better browser. I understand Google's approach to this end: speed, simplicity, security and stability. I hope that my suggestions are either implemented, seriously considered, or in the alternative, constructively criticized in an effort to make Google Chrome a better browser.

I'm thinking that a lot of these reported CRASHES could probably be the result of added EXTENSION incompatibility. I'm running Win Vista 32 and this latest release is very stable (on my Dell laptop) - I do not use a lot of added EXTENSIONS.

Maybe trying to DISABLE a few EXTENSIONS to see if the CRASHES stop might be an idea?

I have a shitton of extensions and haven't had a single unusual crash since this update. Control the internet rage, dude.

Its odd, the first night this build seemed rather stable... however after that it just was crash central. had to switch back to stable :( shame, because i really like what was changed.

The new star location is inconsistent:

The left side icons have info about the current page (is bookmarked / is https).

The right side icons are tools (extension related).

Please move the star back to the left. I miss the quick glance to see if a page is bookmarked, and finding it between the mess of icons on the right is not as easy.

Love the new lay-out. More on my win7 then on xp though. Also I only have one extension up and running and didn't had any crashes at all. I do believe the new place for the star button is better then before, especially switching on my pc and laptop to this new build because I liked it!

@Chris L.,

You can already reduce bookmarks to only the favicon with no name. Just delete the name from the bookmark.

Please dear God move the bookmarks star back to the left. I absolutely, like more than 90% of the people who've commented, hate it on the right. It seems Chris L is the only dummy to want it there. It ruins the flow and is completely screwing up my user experience. I've started not recommending Chrome because of this, and I am a Google JUNKIE. There's a great TED Talk about how small things like that can mean all the difference for an end user. Please change it back. I am absolutely begging you, Google, PLEASE put it on the left side. Please. Please. Please.

Also, Ctrl+B was a good thing, but I can live with Ctrl+Shift+B. I cannot live with the bookmark star on the right of the omnibox. =(

The bookmark star change was infantile. Leave it where it was - in context to other web address tools like home, reload, etc. Moving it to the right, close to app tools is just a simple idiotic UI screw up as if you had help from an India based engismearing team.
