^A minor yet cool change, haha. Is there any word of a better built-in download manager coming to Chrome? Perhaps something like the one in the latest Safari, like a button in the toolbar with a dropdown menu? Kinda like what they're doing in Firefox as well.

Also, I'm still hoping for Google to change the folder icon for Bookmark folders. The current one looks like a folder icon you'd expect to see in Windows 2000 and below.

Edit: They've also seemed to have changed something regarding with Font rendering. For example; The time indicators on YouTube in the player look different than before the new Dev Channel Update. I have also noticed this on Facebook on the 3 buttons in the top toolbar. These are the only places where I have noticed it so far.

Edit 2: Font rendering has changed period. Not only for those things mentioned above but font rendering in general has changed since this Dev Channel Update.

They should get rid of this icon for the OS X version because you can just go to Chrome > Preferences

All of these changes, yet they still can't produce a change that countless users have been clamoring for since 2009: an option to auto-close or remove the download bar that intrusively pops up after every single download in the browser.

Chromium updated to 23 with this introduction..

Random facts about 23, courtesy of Wikipedia 23 is the atomic number of vanadium (next up Chromium...) According to the birthday paradox, in a group of 23 (or more) randomly chosen people, the probability is more than 50% that some pair of them will have the same birthday. 23 is the width of the Arecibo message, sent to space in search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Normal human reproductive cells have 23 chromosomes. 23 is the TCP/IP port used for telnet Michael Jordan wore the number 23 when he played on the Chicago Bulls (and Washington Wizards) The 1980s TV series Max Headroom was set at Network 23. 4, 8, 15, 16, 23*, and 42 The Number 23 is a 2007 film starring Jim Carrey. The 23 enigma refers to the belief that most incidents and events are directly connected to the number 23.

Chrome needs a better download manager. The browser has evolved over the years but the download manager has not. An option to run downloads instead of saving them would also be nice.

The dev channel has been updated to 22.0.1229.6. No post on the Google Chrome Releases blog for it. My guess is that it fixes the same security issue with Adobe Flash as this:

^I can confirm that it's not there actually. It's still the red X on my end and I'm using the latest dev build.
