Congrats on version 35!

I say, those multi-window support means I can now but a Galaxy Tab Pro 12 and use Chrome side by side?

Android needs to add support for running two apps side by side.

What did you do to the NTP?? I had the new NTP flag enabled and I disabled it to see if the default would trigger the new NTP, which it didn't -- and when I reenaled the flag I got the new new NTP design and it not better than the old new NTP layout.

The thumbnails are too big and are still broken, as with the desktop version. Just get rid of them.

Today's chrome beta 35.0.1916.27 beta aura on linux (Arch x64) has a repeatable bug using 2 screens. Drag a tab from a full screen secondary screen to primary screen then when you click back on any tab on secondary screen/window, the chrome window on the primary display goes back to the secondary display (as a underlayed window, not a tab).

Have you returned the previous change tab swipe functionality?

Until that is returned as at least an option all of the fancy new features are worthless.

There are better more functional alternatives.

Its a shame because tab sync is one feature that I miss. And you dont allow access to that api for other browsers.

Why would you

a) change swipe to appease 4 fat fingered idiots that couldnt use it the old way

b) not at least make it a toggle.

It makes no sense at all. Its an apple move.

Hello,

After I downloaded this release, I've been experiencing a couple of serious bugs that should be seriously taken care of as soon as possible.
The app cannot load any webpages and it also cannot maintain itself from force closing. I have 59 tabs before updating, will I need to close these to prevent it from force closing?

I'm impressed. This beta is really good. Nice new features.

NTP looks better than ever before.

Suggestions for upcoming versions:

NTP:
- make it default
- if no tabs is open, show NTP (instead of grey background with Chrome logo)
- if selecting "Bookmarks" or "Recent tabs" show navigational

Bookmarks:
- remove mobile bookmarks and only show "Desktop"
- rename "Desktop bookmarks" to Cloud/Chrome/Synced bookmarks).

General:
Don't show undo message for closing tabs like "New tab", "Desktop" etc., but only proper [website] tabs.

After latest update bookmarks always show in list view even though I disabled "New NTP". I really like bookmarks in small thumbnail. Enable or disable New NTP option doesn't change anything. Pls fix it.

I haven't had any problems yet, and I'm using it on my Samsung Galaxy S3, Android 4.3. Great update so far.

Will load a page as usual. Then when I attempt to scroll the page crashes on n5. On n7 2013 same thing happens but whole chrome beta crashes as well. Was working up until a few hours ago. Chrome stable works fine.

Can't login using saved ID and passwords with this beta update.

Cartras said...

Same problem as N.T. Saved usernames and passwords are not being filled in the form spaces.

Ryan said...

Few it's not just me. I've found usernames and passwords are autofilled in. However the website reports the password field is actually blank.
A work around is to focus on the password field and press enter, but clearly a bug.

I'm facing some serious issue with recent update to Version 35.0.1916.27 beta aura, as whenever I start chrome, gnome-keyring-daemon starts consuming 100% of CPU after upgrade.

In addition, none of username-passwords getting auto-filled.

HELP!
