Is Chrome Beta for Android going to address zoomed in issue on some pages while browsing in landscape?

It's a known issue, though I don't know when it was first reported, but its very annoying.

Still hoping you will add a permanent setting to request desktop website versions. =)

The tap disambiguation is keeping me away. Letting me turn it off would be great.

Where's the link for the bug on sluggish performance on the galaxy nexus? Or is this something that won't be fixed?

@Mahender:

I don't think Chrome (for A) will ever support Flash since Android does not support it beyond ICS.

And are you asking for an 'Exit'-button? On Android? Really?? I think you mean something like 'Close all tabs' :)

Closes up right after lanuch.

Crashes for me on launch. HTC Ruby Jellybean CM-10. Previous version did too.

Performance is sluggish on Lenovo ideatab A2109a, worse than stable version.

Having some problems on my Note 2. I hope you can fix this soon.

Hey I just noticed y'all fixed the issue with typed in search in the Omnibox not being secured (HTTPS).

I actually reported that as an issue, w/in Chrome for Android 18 :-)

Sterling said...

Hmm... I guess I spoke too soon 'cause typed search term results are not encrypted (HTTPS).
