The new onmibox string matching is extremely slow on OS X for some reason- is there any workaround for this at the moment? The option seems to be enabled by default and is no longer an about:flags option.

Seems to have fixed the issue after clearing browsing history- but it might return as it repopulates.

Chrome now complains about GPU accelerated 2D canvas is not supported. If I disable it in about:flags it doesn't complain.

I, too, have been waiting since like milestone 4 or so for the print preview to not be bumped and finally see the light of day. LOOOOONG overdue.

Is it just me or are people's CPU usage high when typing urls/searching with the url bar?

We added the canvas 2d warning to remind folks, who enable the feature, that it is still a work in progress. We found that users were encountering bugs related to canvas 2d acceleration, without remembering that they had enabled the feature. This sometimes made it non-obvious that the user was encountering a bug specific to our canvas 2d acceleration.

We of course greatly appreciate those of you helping to test the feature and report bugs that you may find. Thanks!!

When the option to "Use a prediction service to help complete searches and URLs typed in the address bar" is enabled, bookmarks appear at the bottom of the list when typing into the omnibox. They used to be at the top, which was more convenient.

Yes I also encounter extreme slowness when typing in the omnibox.

Print preview would be nice IF IT WORKED just crashes the page every time and you can't turn it off.

I like the idea of the compact navigation, but it would be great if there would be a key (perhaps Alt) that would toggle between hiding/showing the toolbar (Firefox works this way with the menu bar).

Also, the extension icons could be shown when the smaller URL bar is shown when double clicking on the tab.

I'm not sure where such suggestions could be submitted in an official manner.

Yea omnibox is slow. But I like the feature where you can remove the omnibox. Also by clicking the tab you can then use it. I like the direction where google chrome is going. But again omnibox is slow. Well it is the dev version so I guess its expected for things like this to happen.

Print preview tab still not working with non-google PDF viewers (hmm, we trying to become like the apple sealed world? lol); glad there's atleast an option to use the good old original print handling window.

Aye... i'd like to point out something ~_~, the apps access section in new tab page is gone. Does this have to do with the development of the new tab page or what? I want to access my apps =/

And i mean the experimental new tab page, not the old one.

Oh and also, the omnibox works fine for me in Vista 64 bit. It's still fast and perfect.

"Facebook crashes when multiple pages are opened."

I confirm what Eric has described, I have repeatedly experienced the same issue, in my case it's on a Mac (OS X 10.6.7 Snow Leopard.)
