Whats the difference between the Chrome Dev channel and Chromium?

Chromium is the open source version of chrome and wont have auto update/book mark sync/cloud printing and all those Google features.

So what version do you recommend for someone who likes to be on the cutting edge but still wants speed/functionality 99% of the time?

Since you mentioned bleeding (cutting) edge with speed and functionality then Dev branch is for you. But I still suggest you to use Beta over Dev channel because many times dev channel are totally blast off. Go ahead with Beta channel.

Any word on font rendering based on DirectWrite? I'm using Canary and it looks like some websites are rendered the same way Firefox renders when HA is on.

Not saw any changelog word with DirectWrite. Yes! I agree Chrome font rendering improved a lot.
You can check major changelog of Chrome font rendering library (it is actually multipurpose).

Like the new share button a lot. Looks much cleaner removing the star.

Same here. They could remove the share button for all I care. I just want easy access to the bookmark icon. My guess is they will revert in the next few builds.

Anyone noticed that now, if you install the Chrome Dev channel in Windows 8 and set the browser as default, you no longer can access the desktop browser. Even the taskbar icon takes you to the Immersive app.

I'm on Dev and I don't have this and can't find this on flags as well. :/
Version 23.0.1255.0 dev-m

Edit: Nevermind, so it's the Action thing. It crashes on mine everytime I click it. Oh well, interesting concept. Extra click to bookmark but better than having a separate share button
