Chrome modern broken?

12 posts in this topic

Posted

So setting up and playing around with my new i5 Lenovo miix 2 tablet today I decide to try the touch version of chrome since its the only other modern/touch browser around yet? And it appears to be completely broken.

 

Is chrome modern currently broken or is there something else that causes this ?

Which Chrome version you are using? Stable, Beta or Dev or 32-bit or 64-bit on Windows 8 or Windows 8.1? Video card driver?

 

Any extra flags enabled from about:flags?

The 'modern' version of Chrome isn't really a touch browser.  However, mine does render normally.

Chrome is currently fine when using the Metro version - for me at least. 
Sorry all I can suggest is a reinstall to see if that fixes those graphical issues.

32-bit you mean, I understood, so don't mind. Also Intel just recently updated their drivers, so I suggest you to try them rather from windows update.

Also look into about:gpu whether if some hardware acceleration disabled or not.

That looks like graphic card problem/rendering problem not actual Chrome itself. You might wanna head over to amd.com or nvidia.com and update first.

Can't install Intel's drivers. I did upgrade just the graphics part manually. No change, no change with or without chrome hwa either.

Sometime Google manually put users in field trails and enable selective flags, I suggest go into about:flags and restart to default as well. Might be this could fix something.

I tried the beta version as well same problem. Canary doesn't do modern/immersive it seems

 

I wonder why google and FF complain so much about not being allowed to do RT browsers when they apparently don't care at all.

 

I don't suppose anyone forked the FF modern/touch build into one of the other alternative FF builds ?

Canary should allow immersive mode when Chromium can also do it.

Nope, nobody forked FF modern build, although some old build might be available in tinderbox builds although I will not recommend it using.

 

I think more like this issue is related to some field trail test nuking your immersive mode or Intel graphic driver messing up.
