Weird. I'm still on "Version 30.0.1599.14 dev". Usually I'll see the coloured hamburger menu button for the update _before_ I read about it. :) Now the waiting game begins. :)

I think we should use Shiflt + Esc to find the process that makes my cpu 100%.
Finally, I find "Instant: NewTab" process cause problem.

I see the version on my machine is 31.0.1612.1 dev-m Aura... is that some hidden Easter egg or something?

The worst update ever.

The browser is causing the cpu to run 100% all the time. Can't use it now until there is a fix.

9:55 PM, August 27, 2013  
Blogger Oleg Anashkin said...

Each tab uses 3-5% CPU, so overall browser consumes 100% CPU and makes the whole system unresponsive. Can't use Chrome now at all.

My theme basically went away when switched to 31.0.1612.1 dev-m Aura. The bar is blue and now there is a blue A on my menu button

9:58 PM, August 27, 2013  
Blogger Ishmoo21 said...

And I am running 100% too.

The 100% Bug seems to be a Rendering Bug, since Deactivating all Plugins, and phishingfilters (like what helps to get less cpu in the Past) didn't even give a tick less CPUtime here.

Someone relay messed up here, and i hope they will update that asap.

i got this version Version 31.0.1612.1 dev-m Aura. But It's got serious keyboard issues while opening it in metro mode. Chrome can't detect any alphabetic keys, only numerals. If we type any alphabetic key, it shows only some random numbers. Why is that?

100% CPU too, please fix :)

100% CPU usage, all addons completely broken, themes gone... That's the worst update EVER...

100% CPU usage too...please FIX it soon. And no chrome remote desktop functionality anymore.

Same problem for me: 100% CPU usage. Unusable!

No problems here. Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. CPU usage minimal, just as always

If you disable the Instant Extendend API the CPU problem is gone!

window 8 version31.0.1612.1 dev Aura so many problems ... metro mode and desktop bug ... Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed. Relaunch now? ... relaunch chrome restart again ... troublesome...

An Aura build!
Read about it on G+, finally got to run it.

Anyway Aura is not some easter egg or something :P
From what I understand is something like Aero in Windows, something to do with UI.

Aura came from the Chrome OS side.

For deeper details go Google it ;)

100% CPU usage here too,
somehow I can't disable the Instant Extendend API to test if it would fix the problem :(

100% cpu usage immediate after upgrading on windows 7.

It's not gone, I didn't enable this option.

Blogger Peter Nimmo said...

Same here. Ever since getting this update with the "a" on the settings button the CPU usage has gone through the roof, and I don't have the Instant Extended API option enabled

Reverted back to beta channel. The dev version is not usable for me, my whole PC becomes unusable because of that. v30 works perfect.

Blogger Handycam said...

Same here with the 100% CPU use, even in background. Mac OS 10.8.4. Meanwhile Safari background CPU use is about 2%. Went back to 29 but now it seems that even 29 is having high CPU use -- above 85% in background. I checked Chrome task manager and all of that CPU is the Browser process.

31.0.1612.1 dev-m Aura keyboard is not working on my laptop. Cannot type in the address bar, when trying to write in any fields on the page is seems like my keyboard works like a numpad.

Blogger Thomas Quintana said...

This morning my system updated to: Version 31.0.1612.1 dev-m Aura

With that update I noticed that my theme that I had previous has gone back to the default. And I also noticed that the App launcher in the top left corner has disappeared.

So far no problem on my Win 8 Pro x64 PC.

The metro mode feels like Chrome OS.

6:29 AM, August 28, 2013  
Blogger Andrew Arace said...

very unstable. (win8, running in desktop mode). consistently crashes
i'm a firm believer in the dev channel, but this doesn't even look like it was tested for 5 minutes.
might have to revert.

Blogger iron2000 said...

Ok, I can't type in the omnibar of Metro mode Chrome.
I can backspace but can't type.

Strangely on the desktop its holding out pretty well, used it for hours fine.

I suppose the move to Aura is a big change thus causing those bugs, its the dev channel after all.

But if its the stable channel then its complaining time.

Figured out that Aura is a UI implementation from the Chrome team. Noticed lots of subtle animations :) By the way I didn't seem to experience any bugs on my Windows 8 netbook...

7:54 AM, August 28, 2013  
Blogger Dan Atkinson said...

I also experienced the 100% CPU. A quick fix for this is to go through all of the tabs, which immediately reduces their CPU usage.

As noted by others, Aura is the new UI implementation.

Bug has been raised here: crbug.com/280544. Please star the issue to raise its awareness.

Does Aura mean Windows will finally get the same tab animations as on Macs?

I too have the problem of extreme CPU usage. Also my theme broke, but that okay. :)

To go back to your older, working version of chrome. Go to start > run, and type in "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application" without the quotes. Run old_chrome.exe :)

This build broke all sorts of things. LogMeIn does not work right, scrolling with my mouse wheel works 50% of the time, high cpu, and my theme disappeared.

The problem relates to the prerendering of pages. If you disable prerendering and end all ongoing prerendering processes, the problem goes away

P.S. It works just fine with 5% CPU usage.

Check for new_chrome.exe in C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application or your PC.

It fixes the CPU problem.
