    The experimental new tab page has gotten a bit better but some text from apps overlap and recently closed pages does nothing. It is also nice to see the new logo is back.

    Keep getting, "Update server not available (error:3)" when clicking on "About Google Chrome." Looks like the browser updated, but error bugs me. Is there any idea of its origin?

    Ditto to this not working on Mac OS X Lion Developer Preview 2.

    Using FF to download the previous version is horribly slow :(

    The mouse cursor sometimes disappears when I navigate through the menu. I don't know if it's a bug or I just happen to me.

    Gawker websites (such as Gawker.com, Kotaku.com, io9.com) appear to be broken with this latest version. They worked fine in the last version, and in Firefox 4.

    Hi, may I know how to refresh selected tabs all at once?

    6:10 AM, April 06, 2011

    When clicking on external websites that starts chrome immediately to load, it doesn't load at all. For Eg. Clicking on link on tweetdeck with Chrome as default web browser, the web page doesn't load.

    Ahh, drat, I'm on OSX Lion Developer Preview 2 as well...*sigh*.

    I think it's already downloaded the update, next time I restart Chrome, it will apply it.

    I suppose there's no way to undo it. *sigh*. I know that Lion is a preview, but seriously, you think they could at least test somewhere in their testing matrix for show stoping bugs like this before - there's been quite a few showstoppers like this in the dev branch (e.g. opening Configuration crashing the browser)

    Printing still does not work. Lame. Although the tabs no longer crash, the print preview window does nothing. I click print and nothing happens.

    As previously stated, this update doesn't work with Lion Dev Preview 2.

    But good job bringing back the old icon. We needed something new.

    when opening new chrome windows, they don't come into focus as they used to... so when you hit ctrl + N you can't start typing on the address bar right away...

    Why has this new toy like logo returned? Get rid of it and bring back the professional old one.
    OR give it a little polishing to make it more outstanding and less flat like a sheet of paper!

    BTW, check out this fancy little bug I discovered:

    New version looks very slow on Kubuntu 10.10 compared to previous releases. Rendering pages takes some time, especially when >2 windows are open, opening new tab in the background almost freezes current one till the new one is loaded.
