Strange behavior of Chrome with embedded Youtube videos:
Chrome opens a new window instead of watching full screen video

Sorry for my poor english.

This version does not render pages well sources like Twitter, plus there's an overuse of the CPU.

confirming what some said above, scrolling is not good on (smooth scrolling disabled in flags too here). Also high CPU usage on frozen pages, impossible to scroll.

One last thing: smooth scrolling (if enabled) has a bug, page scrolling back down a bit when you stop scrolling up. But okay, that's in flags.

Not a fan of the new "new tab" button, though. Old one was nicer looking.

Had to switch to firefox since this release doesn't work at all. Can't load pages or if it does it does not stop loading, so for example you can not log on to google etc.

Also had terrible problems with syncing (maybe the problems are connected, possibly because unsuccesfully trying to sync omnibox?), had to kill chrome after 20 minutes or so.

Tried to kill my sync data in dashboard, but it says "data can not be displayed" (thus it can not be deleted).

Running Mac OS X Lion: Pinned tabs are about twice as wide as they should be and the new tab button/icon looks really bad (stroke too faint, gratuitous drop shadow).

Looks like Google Chrome is fine on everything apart from Windows 7 64-Bit and Mac OS X Lion.

The Google Talk extension seems to cause some crashes. After uninstalling the extension and just using the 'normal' Talk in Gmail of G+ works just fine. It's only that default Chrome OS extension.

There's inconsistency with font rendering (lack of cleartype in some parts). Going to the settings menu for example "Make Google Chrome my default browser" is lacking cleartype, OTOH the menus Basic, Personal Stuff and Under the Hood got cleartype. I dont how to say it more clearly, english isnt my first language.

I'm on WinXP SP3.

Ditto on font rendering (readability really bad in gmail; text takes 10-50% more space in Chrome 16.0.889.0 vs. IE9: white spaces are a lot larger!); crashing on updates.

Just to expand on my cleartype issue, i'm using twitter right now, the font lack cleartype. And yes Twitter is also very sluggish.

Any flash-based website seems to have issue with cleartype with this Chrome build.

Ditto the font rendering problem and lack of cleartype . . . Windows 8. I've returned to the beta version where everything looks a lot better.

I've noticed an issue with the bookmarks on my bookmarks bar. I've seen several times where I use a bookmark (middle click to open in new tab) and then I look several minutes later and it has move to a different position on the bar. Sometime it's to the other end of the bar, so there is definitely no question that I didn't drag it by accident.
I don't think they move WHEN I click them (although they might and I just haven't noticed).
PS. I sync bookmarks.

Come on Google why is a fix taking so long? It's been in canary for a while (this build). So because of bugs it isn't updated for Linux but mac and windows still has lots of bugs!

Problems don't appear to have been solved in latest Canary build (16.0.891.0) either.

Twitter has become unusable in this version of Chrome, as per the comments above. The fonts are hard to read and the CPU load is ridiculous, even after a couple of minutes of having Twitter open. Finding this is in both the Dev and Canary builds. Win Vista.

It seems that downloads finish but according to Chrome it hasn't.

High CPU usage and also Chrome keeps stalling when viewing pages with html forms on them.

Some downloads are having a problem too, its more when you have multiple downloads at the same time though. Downloading one thing at a time seems to be ok.
