Bring the star back to the left!
Its so annoying to have it on the right.

Make CTRL+B the bookmarks page! This is a must too!

I dont mind having a gray bar with a blue bar. I actually think it doesnt look bad.

Is there a list of things changed per release other than the svn log? If not, can someone walk this poor noob searching the svn log for changes made for this release? Thanks!

the issue of getting a white screen when watching videos in full screen still remains untouched, i really miss playing farmville in full screen and watching my favourite show on youtube in full screen, when will this problem be solved, and when will Dev channel users be able to access the Chrome Web Store, i'm sorry but i cant see much progress, unlike Apple

Why isn't mine updating automaticly?? It used to, how do I make it auto-update again? Thanks

I agree with Justin. Auto-update was more useful.

When opening from this version on Mac OSX, the cursor focus is not in the google search box and the auto-suggest feature is broken once you start typing.

When i close Chrome, It doesn't reopens my last closed tabs. I have checked option is set correctly but not working.

I am on Win 7 X64

Crashed once for me immediately after install, first crash I've experienced on Chrome in a looooooooong time. Can't reproduce it though, so it could be an installer bug.

I can confirm the menu thing, Win 7 x64; page menu looks fine, wrench menu does not.

Speaking of Windows 7, the gray still looks as hideous on Vista/7 as it did a month ago. Please change it back, soon.

Noticed something strange going on, after updating to this release, I began noticing ads popping up above and, very unusual. I have never seen an ad on the home page of google, not until today.

Is it just me or does google now put adverts on their home page?

I think the wrench menu thing is known, and comes from an experimental change in menu style. (I read something about this in the last revision log, which annoyingly enough isn't linked to in these build notes)

Are security updates implemented in the DEV releases?

Blogger Cakalaky said...

@derkim do you mean side tabs? If you add --enable-vertical-tabs to shortcut then right click on the tabs and check "Use side tabs" then the tabs will be on the side.

Like before, in tab, I still got a 4 Ko/s leak (-> 14 Mo/h) in javascript memory with this dev update. Multiply this by the number of tabs opened on my workstation, I can say that all my ram go to this browser.
I'm pissed of these insignificant updates about design. Make it works without a leak huge like this.
I'am a dev (on an app staying several days running) and if my code leaks like this... I can go and search for a new job !
Sorry for the complain but in my point of view, this is unacceptable for a "revolutionnary" browser, and if I think that, you can assume I'm not the only one.
maybe you can organize a survey on dev release to prioritize the important stuff to implement/fix/refact on this browser will help.

Auto update security is always a better idea as per as I concern. So I like to know whether DEV channel providing the facilities or not.

've finally figured out where it went wrong: I had Roboform(7.05, the latest version)installed in my system, which is in some serious conflict with Google Chrome(all versions).
