Awesome progress lately. I've switched from Chrome to Chromium after I figured out how to add Pepper Flash and PDF to the Windows version. :p

i have noticed that just about every other time that the Dev version updates the right click replace work functionality is broken.

i really wish you could enable the stackable tabs on the mac version. it's the only thing keeping me from using chrome when I'm on OSX as I tend to have quite a few tabs open at once

The only thing thats keeping me from using it on OSX is an incredibly annoying bug where the right click menu on the new tab bar's bookmark page randomly stops working :/ (after using chrome for a while, when I right click on something in the bookmark bar I just get no right click menu at all, I have to restart chrome).

 

edit: seems like the issue may have gone away with the latest beta updates

nvidia 331.65 driver got blacklisted due to pink corruption:

 

 

 

Blacklist NVIDIA driver 9.18.13.3165 on windows

It caused incorrect rendering (in pink), and upgrading to .3182 fixed the issue.

Is there any particular reason why they broke the adobe reader pdf plugin?

You'll get used to the new layout. It's not that bad actually.


What I dislike about it is that you can't set your own bookmarks as the tiles below the search bar.

Also to use direct write in Chrome:

1. Go to about:flags and search for LCD Text Anti-Aliasing and enable it.

2. then open Chrome shortcut present on your desktop and in Target add --direct-write in the end.

 

Just tried this, made a marginal difference IMO. When is proper DirectWrite support coming? Quite frustrating this is the only thing holding me back from using Chrome because fonts in Firefox look so much cleaner/smooth due to ClearType.

Flag changed from --direct-write to --enable-direct-write , so try new one.

 

Its landing bits by bits.. First they will add initial Direct Write support in their Skia library, remove Web Fonts usages... Bits by bits. I am also interested in this support, so I post every changelog related to it in here.. Follow up this thread... :)

Use SkFontMgr for webfont construction on windows

Change FontCache to expose the SkFontMgr implementation and use that to
construct webfonts on windows. This way the appropriate font manager
(DirectWrite or GDI) is used for webfonts just as it is for system
fonts.

It's pretty obvious that it sometimes uses a different font manager,

You are not the only one suffering from this forum bad eating habits. I several times missed my several stuff recently.
