Dev Channel Update

Note: Chrome Dev Channel has been updated to 15.0.874.5 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome Frame with the same changes as below.

The Dev channel has been updated to 15.0.874.0 for Windows, and Chrome Frame; 15.0.874.1 for Linux; 15.0.874.3 for Mac.

  • Updated V8
  • Fixed a possible sync crash triggered by encryption of all sync data.
  • The --enable-accelerated-plugins flag was changed to --disable-accelerated-plugins. Pepper Plugins are now accelerated by default.
  • Fixed a crash when deleting cookies from chrome://settings/clearBrowserData.
  • Enable new client-side phishing detection for non-UMA users (previously UMA-only). When local heuristics trigger, sends only limited information that does not identify the page, such as a prefix of the hash of the URL, and other non-identifiable features such as whether you've visited the page before. [r99582]
  • Fixed many known stability issues.
  • Fixed dragging of apps on NTP [r99110]
Full details about what changes are in this build are available in the SVN revision log.  Interested in switching to the Beta or Stable channels?  Find out how.  If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug.

Bookmark menu has lost favicons, and they don't come back when revisiting sites. Not a huge problem, to be sure. This is on Lion.

Facebook page appears broken when is opened; otherwise this version works like a charm.

Huge memory improvement! Unable to install Chrome Web Store apps. Install spins for a few minutes then goes back to "Add to Chrome" button.

This update completely broke something for winxp home 3, clicking on the tabstrip background [ie. the titlebar type area] at any time causes the window to freak out and hide itself in some manner. This only happens when the window is maximized; fullscreen and movable windows aren't affected.

The only way to recover the window is to right click &#emdash;> restore / maximize the taskbar button. That doesn't prevent the issue from occurring again, mind, it just happens again when you next click the tabstrip background.

Clicking tabs doesn't cause this, but if you slide a tab all the way to the right and click to its left fast enough, you can hit the tabstrip background and the window will break again.

It started doing this immediately after this update, so it's not like I changed any settings anywhere. Browse normally, update, relaunch, and then suddenly this starts happening.

Bring back the god damn floating bookmark bar on the Most Used page...

I also miss the floating bookmark bar, but they did move the bookmark menu in the wrench further up making it more accessible. Before I got used to the bookmark bar on NTP I used the bookmark menu button on the nav bar (which got axed). Perhaps the moved bookmarks menu in the wrench will suffice as a replacement.

@Fox E - I've got the same problem. Have submitted a bug report for it here:

The Pepper Flash disables itself -

A great update nonetheless, a huge memory consumption improvement. But, opening the start menu in Windos XP, with Chrome in focus makes it crash.

Function "Stop sync and delete data from Google" doesn't work properly, I still see remaining of the synced account after I delete the sync data from Google Dashboard.

How to check:
Do a sync, deactivate the sync from Google Dashboard by deleting the data, activate the sync with the same account but use a clean profile.

In about:sync(chrome://sync/) "Sync Node Browser) you'll see remaining information from previous sync.

I'm having crashes in Windows XP SP3 as well. It look like everything is working, but the screen does not update.

Chrome flash plugin crashes with 100% reproducibility. Nothing will load. Makes this build unusable on many sites.

Missing profiles management in options??? That was an awesome simple to manage feature. Sure beat keeping multiple shortcuts for different profiles. Sure there were bugs... but you didn't have to remove it all together.

If you want profiles back go to chrome://flags and turn profiles back on.

Unfortunately this dev release is so buggy (crashing/freezing)in Windows XP SP3 I had to switch to the beta channel.

I confirm that Chrome dev with XP Service Pack 3 is a nightmare and keep crashing. However keep up the good work and look forward to the next update as always.
