nhnl, I too see it. I'm ignoring it in the hope that it doesn't mean anything!

nhnl, actually that link was for Canary.

This is for today's dev:
"It notifies that a restart is needed even when one is not."

I gave up restarting and things seem to be working just fine!!!

Other than the restart glitch, which one can ignore, the rest seems just fine.

I used Adblock. But it also slowes your connection down, and doesnt stop the connections to the adservers. Try downloading this instead:

VERY unstable flash plugin. Flash has always been lagging on Chrome in comparison with other browsers, but this time it's probably the worst ever. For the first time since the very first release of Chrome, I am using Opera for all my flash-related browsing (mostly video, but also apps and games...)
