I just wondering, why was about:labs changed to about:flags? To me the latter sounds like something other than experimental features.I can't wait for more labs er...I mean flags to show up in the beta channel. I want Tabbed Settings!
"about:labs moved to about:flags"This was the most stupid idea ever... yeah... testing new experimental features surly sounds good with "Flags" it even nicely even associate... Umm... No it isn't =_=
Also this build contains a new annoying bug: Issue 60170: unable to scroll the pdf
The New Tab Page keeps losing the Bookmarks Bar every now and then, and I have to double-CTRL-SHIFT-B to bring it back on. Random; does not happen every time I open a new tab.
can't scroll pdf!other than that looks good
@-Do you have Instant search enabled in Chrome? If yes then you are most likely stumbling upon this known bug: Issue 59720: Bookmarks bar disappears from NTP after Instant search
yeah that pdf bug is really annoying. Now I need to find another pdf viewer to use until this is fixed.
With new tab page cleaned up and webstore showing up, this seems all set for Chrome web store launch
@NavjotOr you can install even more frequently updated Canary build, it doesn't have this bug. (also pdf.dll from current 8.0.560.0 canary build seems works fine with 8.0.552.11 dev)
@Slipstream. Thanks a lot for your input on the pdf problem. Do your pdfs freeze completely?I appreciate the canary option, and I am really annoyed to have to go to a different browser just to open a pdf, which I do almost ad naseum (boo-hoo, I guess). Maybe I'll just live in canary as my default, until the bug is fixed.By the looks of it, there're only like three stars for the bug. So please, people, if you liike the built-in pdf viewer, do us all a favor and star the issue.http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=60170Finally, has anyone else noticed that there was a cool little preview page pane that would popup next to the scroll bar upon scrolling that has been taken away? Did it get tossed? (I'm failing to see it in canary or dev, recently.) I hope to see it again soon.
Holy crap! I have to use a password phrase, i haven't enabled it o.ö
P.S: You can use this extension for surfing to about:flags easily :D https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/edgpcclhcoddeolfooakmbnidbglkifdI've noticed about:labs had been about:flags in the dev channel update before a few of days
@Emiya: In computer terminology, a flag is a switch. These on/off switches are intended only for geeks who can happily accept that they ruin your Google Chrome install if enabling. I suspect Google did this to make them less "approachable" as "fun features". While they can be fun, they can also be "dangerous".
When I open Chrome with "--enable-default-apps" I don't see any Web Apps (I click on update button and restarting Chrome).Why "Flags"? This is stupid.To show Bookmarks Bar i have to press CTRL+SHIFT+B but CTRL+SHIFT in windows changing my language, this is very inconvenient.
Having the same issue as Giaco with Web Apps. Does anyone have them working?
Just installed this version, and after a system restart I lost all the extensions. :(
noticed that I can disable syncing... when I hit "Stop syncing this account" it prompts me to confirm... I confirm.. thats it... nothing, still showing as synced and still allowing me to customize my sync options...oh, and about:labs to about:flags .. could someone explain this logic? (I know the relation of "flags" to these on/off options... But "labs" still seams more appropriate in relation to google beta features"
This does not work at all on my 32-bit WinXP SP3. It just crashes on startup and askes if I want to restart. Restarting just ends up in another crash?
crash crash crash!
Everytime I open Chrome, it crashes. Win 7 Pro 64Bit. 8.0.552.11
Can't do anything in this version - it crashes about 10 seconds after fresh (no tabs open) start.
Worked ok for a little while, and it's now crashing at every restart... :(
Yup, sadly I'm crashing on every restart now too :(
I agree with the crashing folks here, on Ubuntu in my case. Crashes seconds after startup no matter what I do. Reverted to beta channel, is working (with a warning popup about newer version of configuration)
I'm getting some serious crashes with this release on OS X 10.6.4. It's basically unusable.
Just to clarify, my crashes are happening on Windows XP.
How can you disable internal pdf viewing on a Mac? I'd rather have my PDFs download than read them in a browser.
Oh, and this (and virtually every other dev build since 6.0) doesn't crash on Snow Leopard. I never enable any flag items either.
Windows 7 x64 - Crashes on every boot.
For those who has issue with crashing after update: search for how to create a new user profile: http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=142059It helped me to resolve this.
@tRizzo Thanks for the tip on the fix. This fixed my issue. Win 7 Pro 64 bit.
Looks like an issue with syncingAdd --disable-sync as a parameter on start up.
@Mr: Thanks for tip.
Another confirmation that --disable-sync fixes my constant crash problem.
Same here on Win XP, I had time to disable sync through the Tools menu and crashes are gone.
Same here on WinXP, --disable-sync fixed it. (I had no time to get inside the menu :D )
@Curt Troutwine. Take a look at what it says in about:flags. I'm pretty confident form that language, and news bits I've read elsewhere, the devs want to avoid average users installing experimental items only to have them crash everything - they're really aimed at people who are willing to put up with serious buginess. Also, I understand that flags in dev jargon mean command-switches (e.g., --enable-apps). Make sense?@Handycam. You may be able to disable the chrome pdf viewer (if that's what you mean) on a Mac version by going to about:plugins and disabling it there. Is that what you meant?
On my WinXP too, --disable-sync fixed it.
Is there a way to add in the -disable-sync parameter on a mac?
Disabling sync also solved my issue.
Disabling sync fixed the crashes. Pdf scroll still not working.
The about:plugins gives me a blank page… How do I disable the PDF viewer (because of the scroll bug) ?!
And about the problem with IDM and Chrome?
"Why flags," you ask? Probably because they are planning to ALSO have labs, later on. The present flags aren't all exactly labs, but rather key features that they are currently working on integrating.
What is the "x" in the upper-left corner of instant? It doesn't do anything for me.
@Cougar Yes, that's what I was looking for, thanks.
@Handycam.Glad I could help, mate.
when this version is changed to beta?
Add "Delate" to download file menu at down bar
Please make it to where the download bar DOES NOT pop up when you start downloading something. Give us an option there. I find it cumbersome to have to move the cursor down and click on the x to hide the download bar every time I start a download.
@ GiacoAlready requested and rejected: Issue 34848: Can't easily remove completed/cancelled downloads from the download shelf@ btAlready requested and rejected: Issue 36901: Give option to hide the download bar forever
Why is it rejected? a
I got sync problems after playing with 9.0.563, i have enable 2D GPU than browser crashes after seconds, but when i clean all and try again with that enabled it works but now it only crashes when i try to enable sync to be active. Maybe is just this new encryption don't work properly just yet.
New tab more options pls. 6 tabs for 9 tabs.
@ TomaszAlready requested and rejected: Issue 27704: Increase the number of thumbnails in the New tab pageDespite the title, that issue was actually about adding a customization option.

Suggestion:Have a keyboard shortcut to PIn Tabs! Pretty please?
Chrome 8.0.552.11 dev (on Win7 64bit) crashes instantly for me. Removing the profile does not help. Adding --disable-sync does not help either.
