Is anyone else having issues with the "New Tab Page" and "Speed Dial 2"? For some reason, every time when I click on an empty space or outside of Chrome, a Google search page appears. Whenever I type in the search box, the "New Tab Page" or "Speed Dial 2" (depends on if I have SD 2 enabled) re-appear again.

Similar to this Google page?

Yeah, but it was all messed up in the Dev-build. It would appear whenever you'd click anywhere, either inside or outside of Chrome. It's odd that it happens even tough "Enable Instant extended API" is disabled :s

It been several chromium snapshots and it is still showing and sticking with this menu style, so I think they ditched that old menus and I disabled many about:flags as well.

You can enable it. It's to do with touch sensitive interfaces flags.

If you override it it disables the funky menus.

Worry not ViperAFK.

Which flags enabled it, it is making my head fuzzy. Do tell me.

There is no way to disable the new-style menus as far as I can see.

For some reason my account was corrupted after a PC reboot yesterday. And now I can't seem to be able to log into my Google Chrome account. It shows me the account page and I login though it doesn't load the next page that's supposed to come up :s

Alright, fix it through the most obvious way: My account was still "signed in" but it asked for my password. I selected the option to sign in with a complete new account and re-entered my email and the corresponding password. Now it's logged in and all synced up again.

Edit: A question though. Has anyone had the Omnibox being part of a Google search page? Whenever I was searching on Google yesterday the Omnibox was part of the search page and the black bar of Google was gone (I hope I'm explaining this right). The Omnibox dropdown also looked a bit different and the "New Tab" page had a search field in it as well.

I liked it to be honest though I'd like it even more if it didn't screw around with Speed Dial 2 :p

This just landed in beta when I updated this morning. Still getting memory leaks and malformed pages after Chrome has been open all day. Seems there isn't a browser that can be open 24/7 and handle memory properly :/

Edit: by malformed pages, I mean just below the fold (visible area of the browser window) if I start scrolling before the web page has fully loaded, bits of the page will be "missing" showing only background. Text selecting the affected area makes that bit readable again. Fix is to close Chrome and then open it again, restoring tab sessions.

Maybe it's a known bug? I've had it for ages anyway. Bloody annoying!

In my experience Chrome is the worst of them all in this regard. Internet Explorer is by far and far the best browser in terms of memory management (for me), Firefox second and Chrome last. I haven't ran Opera or any other browsers in a while so couldn't say about them.

Yet Chrome is the browser I use... :/

Same mate, the lack of some of the add-ons I use for IE holds me back from switching :/

They should stick to native menus. I don't like inconsistency.

Plus there is no way to undo this change...

Also threaded Parser is enabled in current Chromium Snapshots...
