    Why do I still get error 12 on my Mac when trying to update via Chrome? I've had this error for at least 4 years. I thought it was being addressed???

    genius said...

    great update. Thanks.

    Rafael Hilário said...

    Even with a lag of a few pages boring pages crash during loading and after loading.

    Chris said...

    I have noticed that contrary to the previous version's warning - this version runs in Debian Squeeze. When will support for these distros really be dropped?

    Dave said...

    I see that Chrome is back to warning that this will be the last update for RHEL6 users.

    Disappointing if this is true - there are quite a few people who rely on enterprise distros for desktops. I'm sure Google has the analytics data...

    Back when I was adding a new bookmark, pressing Tab the focus get in the folder, then press the first letter of folder name and it was selected. Then only press Enter and new bookmark created.

    Now I add new bookmark, press tab, press the first letter and the letter is written in Name field. Can not do the "quick selection" folder "action".

    I just updated today to the stable ver.27 and now Chrome crashes up to 2 min after I open it even without loading a page. Windows Vista 32bit. Removed all extensions just in case - still doing it.
    I can't even submit the bug from Chrome.
    I am with it since the first version - never happened before.

    Nice release on my kubuntu 13.04!
    Yet, when I try to do the conversational search it says no internet connection! Please fix this!

    Cursor said...

    Unable to visit the bug report link, I get a 'website is temporarily unavailable'.

    On Ubuntu 13.04 with Cinnamon 1.8 desktop, when playing video on an HDMI screen, the audio cracks. Issue was not replicated with the previous version of Chrome (26), nor the current version of Chromium or Firefox. Please look into it. I have default Ubuntu drivers for ATI Radeon HD 5000 series.

    Update from Version 26 to 27 is not working via Scheduled Tasks. Only if i install manually or via Services. How can this be?

    error 12...

    Solerman Kaplon said...

    @felix kill and restart the pulseaudio process when that happens

    FreeMan said...

    just crash just reopen... it's very bad version to me after long love story with chrome.

    anonymous said...

    This is clearly the worse version ever released! Cannot launch Chrome anymore since the update, tried everything, cannot uninstall Chrome either (error) so I'm just stuck!

    Now I'm on another computer and I'm preventing the update by not restarting Chrome, but whenever I turn it off or restart my computer it will switch to Chrome 27 and block everything on this computer as well!

    How can we disable automatic update or uninstall Chrome 27 and install Chrome 26 back on?

    Please help

    Hi, we are having problems with posting webforms since this update. Anybody else got these problems?

    M.K. Means said...

    I have been having trouble, too, since this update. I play games on Pogo and the pages won't load and the Chrome freezes. Very frustrating. I too, would like to go back to version 26, because obviously 27 has many bugs!!!!

    Julian Haupt said...

    Our (HTML5 based) IDE for SpellJS is completely broken in Chrome 27 (it was running fine in Chrome 26).

    We're experiencing "black box" artefacts which are never redrawn after opening a context menu

    See:

    Is this a known problem or should we file a bug for this?

    Seeing same black box artifacts with ExtJS context menus
