I tried following the step of adding --enable-aero-peek-tabs to the Chrome shortcut, which worked back when I was using Windows 7, but no go for Windows 8. Any ideas?

Chrome removed it from their source code and it is no longer working and it used to crash Chrome before and they also fixed that crash.

Ahh, bummer. Well, FireFox it is then. Chrome's behaving weirdly in a couple other cases for me anyway.

Yeah, Chrome has gone mildly retarded of late.

I'd consider putting it down, but it's still better than Firefox and IE >.<

EDIT::
Chrome Aero peaks for me on the dev channel. It only shows per window as opposed to per tab screens, but it does show >.>

Yes, it shows per window aero peek rather than per tab which Opera, IE and Firefox do. Even Safari 5.1.7 has aero peek, so in my personal opinion, in native implementation on Windows OS, Chrome is not doing good job like their Metro browser.
