Beta Channel Update

Update: Google Chrome 5.0.375.55 has been released to the Beta channel for Linux, Mac and Windows with a minor stability fix.

Google Chrome 5.0.375.53 has been released to the Beta channel for Linux, Mac and Windows.

This release contains some minor crash and stability fixes, in addition, we have also temporarily put our internal version of Flash Player back behind a flag. We plan on re-enabling our internal version of Flash Player by default on the beta channel in the near future.

We have also fixed a regression so that we no longer remember incognito zoom changes (Issue: 43107)

If you spot any issues, please let us know:

I'm still on 5.0.375.38 and I'm waiting to be prompted to update Chrome, but dose this mean I have to go install Flash on Chrome again??

I liked having Flash already installed on Chrome!

Oh, great! I just updated Chrome and will have to install Flash! What's with the going back on features?

First the dev channel of Chrome is reverted back, now a nice feature of Chrome is removed? I had no problems with the internal version of Flash in Chrome. Sure, Chrome had a days old version of Flash 10.1 RC for a while, and I wondered when it was going to update, but then it did.

During the update, Google does not erase the old version, can be removed manually or it will disappear automatically?
This is happening in the folder:

Unless you are planning to add toolbars support this entire browser is a waste of time but i'm not sure it's even possible with webkit browser why doesn't google never think things throughely before they begin major development projects like google chrome or picasa with no gif animation i really don't understand it but without the ability to add toolbars like offline roboform it would never be a great browser as it should be no matter how many crash and stability fixes you will add.

And i still don't understand why does roboform doesn't auto arrange the favorites by title after copying them from IE and i need to manually do it is it so difficult to say the browser to copy the favorites and then auto arrange them by title?

How can I re-enable your internal Flash player??

to enable internal flash you have to go to the properties of the chrome launch icon, and near the link path, to the right, write the follow:

an example:
C:\Users\xyz\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe --enable-internal-flash

this will activate the internal chrome flash, that, BTW, was de-activated for now due to problems expecially on the linux side (remember that the flash player integrated is a RC version 10.1 and not the stable 10.0, so as soon 10.1 will solve those problem the flash player will be re-activated by default)

Security issues with the integrated Flash plugin, maybe?? Who cares; there's some good reason that it was pulled, because Google *wants* it integrated.

Calm down and wait for the next beta! Jeez.

The new version uses much more CPU than 5.0.375.38. I have many open tabs with flash running.
How can I go back to the .38 version??

But what really is the problem why internal flash was disabled by default in 5.0.375.53

Fabio_Rulez: Thanks for the tip. Will look into it. I already use the --bookmarks-menu

@Jonas N: Google's fault for integrading a beta version of Flash in its browser. It should have gone with 10.0

if you use Roboform you should really look at Lastpass which i consider to be much better than Roboform.

I was using roboform but ran into various issues with it and now use lastpass.

I know on the Mac version, flash items (like embedded YouTube videos) would occasionally load as unresponsive to mouse clicks. You'd have to refresh the page for them to work.

Hopefully this is fixed by the time it's re-enabled.

Have been using Chrome straight for 6 hours and I must say there has not been one crash yet :D
Good Job Googlers

The latest update to 5.0.375.55 beta on Ubuntu 10.04 is working fine here.

Are you guys going to enable the ability to search for Folders as well as the actual links in the Bookmarks? Ctrl-F does the same but a little messy.

Good job.

Memory management when browsing large images seems significantly improved. Not sure if it was fixed in this release or earlier, but I'm pleased :)

With this new release Google Mail works awfully, in the attachment area a white box appears.

Google Analytics too is garbled when choosing the compare functions.
