the favicons are now back to their original piece of paper logo (please no).

and in the omni bar favicons that should have a custom favicon or a favicon reflecting the site is just the piece of paper.

I have two Mac OS X boxes (one 10.7 and one 10.6) and neither show this update as available... both show "Version 21.0.1180.15 dev" and indicate Chrome is up to date. Did this update get pulled for some reason?

This is the first DEV release in a long time that I uninstalled and reverted back to the last... most extensions weren't working. Yes, I know it is a DEV release, but too many things weren't working.

Angry Words issues. The game (html5 in Facebook) is not loading. Instead, only a grey screen.
Sorry for my poor english.

there is another bug. when you insert removable media such as SD card. Probably an unimplemented native file system explorer.

Google Maps seems pretty screwed up with this release. Zooming out of the default zoom level causes bizarre visual artifacts.

A blank page is shown when visiting Chrome Web Store.

A setting to enable basic color management (to use a specific .icc profile) in Chromium/Chrome would be highly appreciated by many.

Had to go back to previous version as extensions are not working and crashing on this new dev version.

I run Gmail as an app, and when I click on a message in my Inbox, the URL briefly flashes at the top of the window.

For the last several updates on Chrome, the pepper flash has been enabled by default. This is all fine and dandy, but pepper flash does not work on CNN videos. More precisely, if you play a video on CNN, the video ends up zoomed in and there are no controls at the bottom.

This dev release has caused problems with my Chrome GMail app. When I try to log in, the system appears to freeze, but if I close the window and click on the app again, it opens directly into my Gmail inbox. This happens when I try to log into my Google Apps GMail accounts as well.

It seems eBay's buttons are broken as well. When you try to delete an item in your "Watch list" for instance, it won't let you. Previous versions worked fine.

Latest Chrome build on Linux x86-64.

I can't get Disqus comments to display on some websites - e.g.

I've tried clearing cache, cookies, etc. I've tried creating new profile with no extensions, etc. but still Disqus comments do not ddisplay.

Chrome bug?

@David Carson i think 22.0.1201.0 dev-m
version has broken the Disqus and facebook commenting system.

The recent random oddities in the dev channel releases makes me think that "rouge" Mountain View Google workers are deliberately adding phantom bugs to new dev versions and informing their friends so they get the $20,000 bounties...

DISQUS is broken (as mentioned above).

I switched to the chrome dev channel a couple months ago JUST to get early tab sync'ing, but now that that's no longer only a dev feature, I've "downgraded" to the beta channel (linux client), and everything's working fine with my dev ~/.config/google-chrome. Only small hitch was that I lost my previous browser session.

See ya dev channel.

Thanks for confirmation re. broken Disqus comments. I'll stick it out a bit longer and downgrade to beta if it remains unfixed.

@fooker - lol - a good conspiracy theory!!

espn scores at the top are broken, espn videos won't load, aol home age main stories won't scroll to next story, a lot of videos on many sites won't play all since the newest dev upgrade. Also, espn radio won't load.

Release broke Java for me. :\ Which I didn't realize a lot of things on the internet use lol. You guys are lucky I updated my Java plugin the same exact time too, I thought it was the Java update until I tested out Firefox and an older version of Chrome.
