I hope the reversed font color for bookmarks/tabs was a bug, because it's making the text extremely difficult to read.

The text in the About Chrome box has no spaces in it. Also, the bookmarks text is white, and the Chrome welcome screen that normally shows the popularly-browsed webpages is black.

As an owner of notebook with NVIDIA Optimus, I would like to report that this version of Chrome still has issues regarding 3D acceleration on NVIDIA Optimus. When I enable "Override software rendering list" and "GPU compositing on all pages", the web pages flicker so much and ultimately crash. For instance, even when I tried to open this seperate comment page, it didn't open at all and instead I did get a black screen. (Totally black.) The very same thing happens, as I try to open Angry Birds offline installed version. I hope that you will consider this as a valid feedback.

Download progress Icon never leaves the app dock icon in Lion. Green pie fills up, but does not change back until app is quit or relaunched, or download history cleared.

you keep introducing bugs and scaring us with shitty modifications like the options page

STOP WASTING TIME and implement missing MAJOR features already, like master password, ability to not collect history but keep cookies, and others.

Preferences page needs an improve desperately!!! If chrome stands out for something, it is for its minimalist looks and slick design. You guys got it right with last preferences pag. Even my mom used it. And it was much more easier to explain how to configure[I do know I can send this pseudo-url thing]. Yet kudos for performance fixes my not-so-current computers appreciate it.
