is new chrome only getting security fixes?if not maybe we could be less geek and highlight here (not on SVN) what are the new features.
My bookmarks page seems to have got way too big in this chrome 21
I`ve noticed one important change not mentioned above. PepperFlash player is set by default instead of "normal" Flash player. Win XP SP3
Whoa, wait... It's been that long already?
So I'm using Pepper Flash now, which is actually working decently compared to every previous time I've tried it, but HD video playback quality seems to have decreased somewhat? It seems a bit more pixelated.Also, any chance of seeing Pepper Flash for Chrome on Android?
It seems as if the "insecure content" warning that used to be given when an https page loads http assets has been removed. Chrome now seems to block such assets unconditionally. This has serious consequences for us. Can you guys please comment? Is there a way for the user to allow such assets on the page?
The YouTube bug (flash?) is not fixed. Once I updated Chrome to version 21, I cannot wantch any video's in Youtube. Any video will play for exactly 11 seconds without sound and stop.
@M. A. Sridhar: thanks for commenting. I'm just writing a blog post about Chrome's new mixed script blocking. Due to user confusion, the mixed script warning is now more subtle -- but it still exists. Look for the shield in the omnibox.As a reminder, mixed scripting can be a serious security condition so should be fixed ASAP.
YouTube flash bug not fixed. Same issues as Floren
there is a problom with pepperflashwhen viwing youtube videos the player seems to glitch and jitterwhen disablimg pepper flash and using regular flash it fixes it please fix pepperflash
forgot to mention i use win xp sp3
I've got the same audio issue with flash, please fix it quickly i dont want to use another web browers =(
Why haven't you fixed Flash yet? Audio is broken etc..I know Flash is crap, but many sites still use it; including your own.This is supposed to be the Stable channel, no?
flash is ok..the problom is saltandpepperflashi think they are more fucest on this than other parts :S
@bazab dabChrome needs to be hardware-accelerated for Pepper Flash to work properly, I believe, because it still doesn't work as well on my older laptop (too much CPU usage compared to NPAPI Flash).Type chrome://gpu in your Omnibox and see what it says. Mine says that "Flash3D" and "Flash Stage3D" are hardware-accelerated.
@jorwow that makes my eyes bleedok here what its saysGraphics Feature StatusCanvas: Software only.

As in previous comments I am also facing the flash problem. There is some lag when switching to fullscreen and vice versa on youtube.
I am experiencing the same flash problem.How can I switch from pepperflash to the normal one? Please someone reply : (
simone im glad im not alone on this :Dgo type about:plugins in the serch bar and disable and you see shockwave flash click on the plus and then disable this:Shockwave Flash 11.3 r31 for me its the first one close and openhave a good day bro :D
simone and others with the flash audio problem, please come to http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=139953 and leave us information on your configuration. We are working hard to resolve the issues as quickly as possible. Thank you!
@bazab dabThat's probably as good as it gets on XP. I'm running Win7 x64 SP1 on a laptop that supports up to Direct3D 10.1, and all my entries say "hardware accelerated" with no listed problems.
I restarted my laptop and since that time, my Chrome 21 never drops below 20% of CPU even if absolutely nothing is being done!
I like the new Omnibox icons. Still looking forward to bookmarks, About, Downloads in the Uber page...
I found out that the huge constant CPU load was caused by Google Checker Gmail Plus 10.2 extension. When disabled, it's OK. I am using "Gmail checked plus classic" instead which is OK.
With the new Chrome 21 (Standard-Browser)I can´t open Links in TeamSpeak (Windows8 64Bit RP)
Flash Issue: Solved! @bazab dab Thank you! (even though I figured out the fix by myself xD hours and hours wasted)You guys with the same problem just follow the guide of bazab dab written above. @Karen Not sure if you told me that to help me or because the Chrome Team needs that.I'll do it anyway. Thank you.
Youtube keeps having problems, at least on Linux 64bit.So I keep having to enable the old 11,2,202,236 flash version.They should either fix the new one or roll back to the old one.
jor@i got some answers in google forums it pepper flash related issue disabling it fixes it even if i enable hardware acceleration if not fix all issue glad my tip help some of you i feel good about myself now XDcheers :D
Pepperflash is jittery and slow, disabled it in the plugins window.Also, I browse at 58-67% zoom and elements of sites that were blocked in correctly pre-update (Elements on Twitter, Facebook) are now not blocked perfectly.Besides that, thanks for the bugfixes. Those are always nice, even if their value is not always earth-shattering or visible to the naked eye.
Not only are the favicons now stupid looking blank pages in the Omnibox, but the Bookmarks Bar no longer has the saved link's icon in the address bar. Now THAT looks really stupid! Someone at Chrome failed to think through doing away with the favicons in the Omnibox, because I cannot believe they want Chrome users (that use the Bookmarks Bar) to have blank pages as the saved link icons. You need to re-think this change!!!
@Bob CrewsThe Omibox's blank-page icon replaces the globe icon (not the favicon which is already on the tabs). However, my bookmarks bar shows the favicons (if available).
Some Favicons (for lesser known and smaller websites) that most definitely had been available (previous to the last update) are now just blank pages in the Bookmarks Bar.
I now cannot access my homepage (google.com). I can type google.com and get there, but when I open Chrome the page just times out.
Sometimes I have some Shockwave Flash Craches.MAC OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.
Youtube videos are broken for me as well. They play no sound and stop after around 3 seconds. I thought this was supposed to be the stable release, how could a bug like this get through?
CPU usage has shot through the roof since Chrome updated itself.Just running a basic video page with standard tabs running in the background sends towards 100%.Any tips in lowering this?
This is the absolute worse update ever. Way too many issues since the last update. I've loved using Chrome, but this is stupid crazy. I'm going to use another browser until this is (hopefully) all worked out - then, maybe I'll be back.
Flash videos installed locally on a computer no longer work unless PepperFlash is disabled. The videos consist of training videos installed on a customer's computer. The videos are viewed using the default web browser - if the user has Chrome with the newest version, the browser opens only a black window and the video will not play. The only workaround is disabling PepperFlash - but the average user will not know how to do this. It appears the viable option is to have our customers user a none-Chrome browser.
Can you guys stop messing with the GUI and start actually working on the performance issues? This issue with S&P-Flash is getting too far, people hating the new "look" this isn't a real 'stable' channel to me. I don't want to start kicking chrome in the backside for it, I get fixes can't come just by request and are only fixed when it's possible to be done.. but come on.First and Foremost;CAN I BE THE ONE IN CONTROL OF MY 'FAVORITE PAGE' THUMBNAILS PLEASE... But performance issues first!
Not sure if it's just me or not but the WikiBooks website isn't showing at all in Chrome. Works fine in other browsers. The source of the page is all downloaded, but Chrome only shows a blank white page https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikibooks/en/wiki/Main_Page
@Chromana did you try to click on the shield in the omnibar and then enable unsafe content?Anyway guys, I didn't like this release, I have to admit it, but come on don't be so evil I'm sure the Chrome Team is working on it hard. Developing isn't that easy, you should know it.Don't forget to use the bug report.
The PepperFlash plugin causes my Windows 7 system to instantly reboot with a solid black or white screen when playing Flash videos. Disabling and using the standard plugin works fine. Took me hours to figure this out. Nice 'stable' release.
YouTube audio and video are out of sync with this update. Other Flash players, like BBC iPlayer, seem to be fine.@Simone thanks a lot, that's what it was. They should really make it more obvious in Chrome when they hide stuff. I'm very good with computers and I missed it, not sure how non-technical people would cope!
Im having this problem: big red and green squares instead the website. Not just in one site, it happends on on few, don't konw why. Seems just random to me. And im not the only one:http://www.lastfm.es/forum/21713/_/2067288Look in the image that user on lastfm is linking.
GOOGLE TEAM...I wanted to say this but Chrome has been having big bugs for the last 7 months. Like when I try to go to Wikipedia it shows nothing and sometimes when I go on Facebook it says something about the site being suspicious the page with the red background. The worst of all everyday Chrome is randomly making the computer unstable and crashes it. If you can compare the chrome from December 2011 to today's chrome some of these bugs wouldn't exist. It was super stable compare to the last 7 months.
Flash problem: tried disabling as above, but that just killed youtube completely. Went to adobe site and downloaded latest flashplayer from there (11.3.300.268). Youtube is now working fine.
All tabs freeze when loading pages in new tabs.
Pages not rendering at all in W7/64 SP1. I need to use this for my work and flash support it's being a mess since the last months. Why do you call this stable ???I'm stoping using this and moving to Firefox permanently as I don't have time for this.
Could you please already release a new version for the stable channel? The flash bugs are incredibly irritating.
I strongly suspect the tech reporters will have a field day with this latest update - suggesting that Chrome may not be as good as people having been saying it is. Seems they are probably right... Karen - the longer you delay fixes, the worse Chrome's reputation will become. I don't care if you have ten updates in a single day - ADDRESS THE PROBLEMS right away and get them corrected and behind you. Every hour that nothing is done is an hour too long. Damage has already been done...and waiting to correct the problems just makes Chrome look very, very bad. Chrome - you blew it by creating problems...and you blew it again by not addressing the problems immediately, even if it meant reverting to older yet stable and sound channels.
I appear to be in the right place.Mine is a variation of a theme.I am experiencing a YouTube Full Screen lag which is disappointing, having recently uninstalled another browser, for Chrome 21.0.1180.75 m.
Cont'd (apologies)...I am running Win XP Sp 3.Cheers.
