Which entries in the revision log tie to Windows 8 crashes? I see mentions of Windows 8, but not in connection with crashes.

Same problem as in 21.0.1155.2 with video and sound rendered by pepperflash being painfully chunky. Disabling it to use the external plugin fixes the problem.

I think there are some memory leaks for me unfortunately. Ever since I installed this update, after around 10ish minutes of use, my computer slows to a crawl until I close it. I'm on Linux Mint Debian 64 bit.

I can no longer install scripts and extensions from anywhere.

I get a popup message (an error message box, not a drop down from the omnibar) saying that scripts and extensions can not be installed from this site.

github, userscripts, or sites that are giving out their own extensions and scripts give me this error message.

How come the bubbles that appear when we hover the mouse over the bookmark link appear to be more.... iono the edges of the bubbles aren't curvy anymore? i'd like the edges of those bubbles return to how they were in the previous versions :< They're more pleasant to my eyes :<

ditto to what most people are saying here. Flash crashes a lot in this version. Well it crashes in other version too, but in this version, it's more frequent...

On the other note, glad that the smooth scrolling's back. But i'm more concern about the flash issue, plus how the bookmark hover bubbles or w/e it calls... i really do not like how it looks... I already mention it before in the previous comment, i'd like to add in that it makes me feel like using windows 98,2000 again... which isnt pleasant.

I'll be going back on other version. Still really glad that smooth scrolling is back, it'll be fantastic if you guys could keep it there and fix the other stuffs.

The browser still freezes Windows 8Release Preview for me consistently. The OS works great.. aside from when I use Chrome. CONSTANT complete hardlocks what require hard restarts. Any ideas? I am heavy in the "Googleverse" (chrome, extensions, google apps, android phone syncing, etc) and may just reformat and use Win 7.. I can't deal with using IE or Firefox.. blech

Software acceleration on this version of dev. 21.0.1171.0 affects video rendering(Youtube). Previous version of Dev. 21.0.1163.0 was able to achieve 30 times of software acceleration. While dev. 21.0.1171.0 only able to achieve a stable 5 times of software acceleration. Performance decreases on the original state(Without stimulus) of dev. 21.0.1171.0 comparable to previous Dev. 21.0.1163.0.
