IE 9 PP#7 seems to have better JavaScript performance then Chrome 8 Beta I hope that next beta/stable will beat that number.. Also is there any plan to include IE 9 and FF 4 in the "Other browsers tested" field while a new bug is raised?

"Open Link in Incognito Window" STILL does not work. Nothing happens with attempting to open links in a web page and from the bookmarks bar. Confirmed Mac 10.6.5.

Milestone 9 and there is still no native smooth scrolling. That's what we call "modern browsing experience".

Feels much faster. Great release Chrome team!

Now, if only we could get cloud print and chromoting features up and running, along with apps, that'd be awesome!

This is already fixed on trunk, just a bit later than this dev update was cut.

9.0.587.0 dev = Build 66374, while the fix was included in 66457 (Issue 62022).

My Windows media player plugin suddenly fails - can't be activated, doesn't play anything!

Check e.g. this video page that would play ice-hockey...

I just had a BSOD... I just updated chrome, so i think the two are related, not cool. never fear I'll be back as soon as the next version of dev is out, going back to regular chrome for now.

windows7 x64, the bsod said something about dxg..dll so maybe it has something to do with gpu rendering?

@SoreGums if you want the memory dump file etc...

GPU acceleration slowed down incredibly. I use xp sp3. the results of the ie9 test drive, have dropped IE9 10fps.

Now I almost can't use Chrome anymore: it freezes after a few minutes of normal usage on 2 different PCs (Vista 64bit and Win7).

And then on startup afterwards it also just hangs very often :-(

Good chance to check out IE 9 or Firefox 4, until the next dev release...

Like many others, I find flash content does not play. Except, not all of it is broken, but the main content is. For example, on flash games, the trailer will play, but the main game just shows a black screen.

Ever since this update, Google Chrome Dev locks up whenever IE9 Beta is run. To free it, I have to force close both applications.

Blogger Alan said...

I've got the same problem as Greg above with the narrow sliver, specifically with the AdBlock extension, but only (I think) on Ubuntu - Windows and Mac OS X seem to be ok.

Another Ubuntu-only problem which has just appeared with the 9.0.587.0 dev version that I installed this morning - only noticed on although there may be others - large fonts don't display properly. With the default font sizes, only the first letter of the headline of the top news story (which is in a larger font that the other headlines) appears, the rest is blank. By hitting ctrl- to shrink the text, the problem disappears. Again, only affecting Ubuntu, not Windows and not Mac OS X; and only this version of GC, never seen before.

1. The new build seems to mess up Windows 7 volume mixer, the Mute settings does not remains checked in a new session
2. I reinstall this build form scrath and the password sync feature is now gone, it worked before the reinstall

I need to close Chrome before my ThinkPad will go into standby. Also, Excel attachments open very very slowly from Outlook 2007. Everything seems to return to normal once Chrome is closed. Both of these issues started with this release.

I am having the same issue as Thib. Youtube works, but Hulu does not. Also, the flash settings manager thing doesn't work for me. I'm going to downgrade to the latest beta or stable release to see if that fixes it.

@David - I fixed this issue by setting Chrome.exe to run as administrator.
All the content that wouldn't work before now works, as does the settings applet thing.

Hope this helps :-)

As reported by several people above.

I agree with the multiple rundll32.exe issue. I believe that may be part of the problem why my laptop will not standby while chrome is running.
