1) This build crashed with "--disable-sync" command-line.

2) Still cannot fixed spellcheck issue:

3) I don't use and want Spellcheck. Turn off spell check. Despite, Chrome downloading Dictionaries file to \Dictionaries folder. 9 mb! Even if it's disabled, why it's forced downloading?

4) About new diaglog style: Context background menu color is white. I don't like it. At least, add a command-line "disable-new-dialog-style".

I hope, Dev Team take notice of the comments.

Best regards...

Seems new chrome versions use lot more network data ? Can we minimize network data usage, for 3G data plans ?

Has there been any changes to the RTCPeerConnection object ? especially with the localStreams and remoteStreams ?

Just to clarify things more ...

The LocalMediaStream Object looks like this in the normal chrome

LocalMediaStream {onended: null, readyState: 1, videoTracks: MediaStreamTrackList, audioTracks: MediaStreamTrackList, label: "JlI6TyshbKhRuwtM50F2dvhzX60pfX1VXwAV"…}

audioTracks: MediaStreamTrackList
label: "JlI6TyshbKhRuwtM50F2dvhzX60pfX1VXwAV"
onended: null
readyState: 1
videoTracks: MediaStreamTrackList
__proto__: LocalMediaStream

and it looks like this in the Dev channel

LocalMediaStream {onremovetrack: null, onaddtrack: null, onended: null, ended: false, id: "sWHnEwyoxPovgiAamNZwbcsJN8Cfmj6BdorL"…}

ended: false
id: "sWHnEwyoxPovgiAamNZwbcsJN8Cfmj6BdorL"
label: "sWHnEwyoxPovgiAamNZwbcsJN8Cfmj6BdorL"
onaddtrack: null
onended: null
onremovetrack: null
__proto__: LocalMediaStream

Is there any particular reason for this difference ?
