is anyone running unstable on 64 bit fedora 21? against an intel integrated graphics chip? i realize fedora 21 is very new. but there hasn't been a single unstable version that has worked. it hangs immediately after a fresh start often. it hangs if it manages to make it out of the gate. this is the most 'unstable' unstable release i've ever seen :-).

New flag: Enable win32k renderer lockdown

No idea what is it and if it's enabled by default or not though.

I cannot update Chrome because it crashes when I try to update it from the About page.

Chrome 64-bit previous dev version
Win 7 x64

It has to do with GDI, I enabled it and GDI handles went away for tabs and extensions. However I still have GDI handles for GPU process and the main browser process.

Hope that helps Jacob Groß

"Enable win32k renderer lockdown" sets an additional process mitigation policy for renderer processes to prevent calls to Win32k kernel system services - see MSDN docs for more info.

This could potentially prevent attackers trying to escape the Chrome renderer sandbox via these vectors - e.g. see CVE-2014-0300 for a specific recent vulnerability that could have been mitigated by this protection.

Thanks Will.

And I had the same Crash as @Jo. Just download the installer, it works.

My Chrome's auto-update got me the latest dev version, but I don't know when it happened. I'm good now.
