Dev Channel Update

The Dev channel has been updated to 14.0.794.0 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome Frame platforms

  • Updated V8 -
  • When installing items from the chrome webstore, we now always prompt with a native confirmation dialog.
  • Fix for failing navigation with chrome://newtab showing.
  • Fixed “invalid server certificate” errors for some secure websites whose CRLs or OCSP responses are signed by untrusted root CAs.
  • Added a makeshift multiprofile button.

  • DNSSEC authenticated HTTPS supported.
  • Intermittent connectivity issues with broken SSLv3 servers fixed.
Known Issues
  • When reloading a page reached via a HTTP POST operation (such as the confirmation page following a form submit during an online transaction), the whole browser will crash (Issue: 86119)
  • volume controls are not functioning on keyboard (issue: 84961)
More details about additional changes are available in the svn log of all revisions.

You can find out about getting on the Dev channel here:

When can we expect Profiles to make their way into Dev natively? That's the feature I'm most looking forward to. :)

When using the optional "compact navigation" feature, opening a new tab is not putting the focus in the url bar. This is especially annoying when making the new tab using the keyboard.

I'm hoping that the chrome profiles feature will be replaced by something a bit more... intuitive? Better?

But really, a cupcake? Having the email address in the title bar actually made sense. Any status on that?

I hope the cupcake is a joke... I was getting used to having a profile switcher that was useful rather than a cupcake...

Even if it wasn't a cupcake (ie had the Google profile image) i'd still prefer the old switcher.

Found the info about the cupcake icon:

Which says:
Change profile menu button to avatar button

This change doesn't add any new functionality. It simply changes the profile menu button so that it now draws an avatar icon.

Once this is checked in next steps will be to:
- associate avatar icons to profiles
- expand the profile menu

Mouse back button / forward button broken for me, too.

Excuse the question, but how can one obtain an even "later" dev-build if, for some reason, chrome can't be built on one's own machine?

Asking this because of reports (here: that mouse buttons are working again in 14.0.796.0.

Can anyone help me out?

Blogger Sam said...

Dev build works great with the exception of star bookmarking, like everyone else said.

I enabled a flag (about:flags) that let me remove the toolbar. While I love it to death, may I suggest that when one makes a new tab, the cursor automatically brings attention to the tab in question?

Thanks, stay brilliant.

Hey guys, when I'm using 'hide the toolbar' there's no Home button anywhere. And I use it a lot.. Could you fix that? (perhaps the best solution could be a shorcut for that)

Thank you!

Compact navigation is great, but one suggestion would be to have somewhere a button that opens a dropdown (or anything else) menu that shows the extensions' buttons. Some of the extensions need interaction with the user, and it is basically impossible to do that with the current Compact Navigation's design.

Not sure if anyone else gets this or this is a know thing. But some contents of a website has a "wiremesh" type red frame around things when I have GPU acceleration turned on (all the flags, though I haven't tried to narrow this down to a specific GPU flag).

Windows 7 x64, Radeon HD5850, latest drivers: 11.6.

I've had this problem for quite a few months now and it's getting slightly annoying.

Also, about the back/forward buttons, I can confirm that this feature is broken, made me panic a little there, haha.

- Botões "avançar" e "voltar" não funcionam através do mouse.

- Navegador inteiro quebra ao clicar no ícone estrela para adicionar página aos favoritos.

- Botão "página inicial" (ou "home") ausente no modo de navegação compacta (isso faz muita falta).

- Problemas com funcionalidades do Flash Player ao utilizar o player de vídeo do YouTube.

- Diversos aplicativos em Shockwave Flash (ou "Crash"?) Player funcionando de maneira instável ou simplesmente congelando após a execução de comandos ordinários.

- Google Translator nem sempre é exibido ao abrir nova guia (mesmo em páginas onde todo o conteúdo se encontra em linguagem diferente daquela utilizada pelo usuário).

- Definitivamente, o controle de volume não funciona quando a janela do Chrome está ativa (percebi ao tentar utilizar o botão "mudo" - como sempre faço - em meu teclado).

- Ao abrir nova guia pelo modo de navegação compacta, o cursor de digitação não está ativo na barra de endereços (também inativo no campo de buscas ao abrir a página do Google Search)

Enfim, a navegação nesta versão se mostra mais ágil, no entanto, temos uma "enxurrada" de novos bugs que necessitam de correção urgente!

Whatever is the difference between this and version 13.0.782.24 it never should've been happened. Version 13.0.782.24 worked well on all web pages, even Google Maps worked like it should. Now it's all buggy again which is a real shame since it's been like that ever since version 12 came out. I've filed a bug ages ago concerning that very thing but nothing has happened.

Tony: If you actually read what the flags do, you will see one that says:

Composited render layer borders
Renders a border around composited Render Layers to help debug and study layer compositing.

DO NOT enable that one! Now the red borders will go away.
