The only Labs feature currently available is side tabs... Not sure how much I like them, and they obviously still have to work on their UI.

Opened up Chrome and I noticed the new "New Tab" page. Instantly went to Neowin.net to check this thread :p

Thanks for the heads-up Meph! (Y)

Not available for Mac OS X, apparently. And I still think OmniWeb is the only browser that has gotten side tabs correct.

Side Tabs is alright, but it doesn't match the rest of the UI at all, I'm sure it's a work in progress and it's not bad having them on the side like that if you have a widescreen monitor.

Yes, my complaint about the huge bookmark menus got fixed! Finally, when this comes to Beta/Stable I'll be even happier! :D

And I don't really like the "new" new tab page. As the current 6.0 version has links for History and downloads easily. Now I have to go in the menu when I loved them their and easy to access :/ I don't really like the new UI of it that much anyway.

^The current "New Tab" page still has the history at the bottom of the page :) The bookmarks menu are still somewhat large imo though.

Better than they were, if you had a bookmark with a huge name, the menu size would adjust and fill lots of the screen!

GPU rendering is back with this update as well, I had the flags enabled but they stopped working, but I noticed when I made a new tab (obviously when Chrome updated) that the font rendering had changed. :D

Looks like youtube stopped dying on me after this update, was getting VERY annoying to have to fire up FF just to watch a youtube video on their site

Hmmm... Side Tabs are er, interesting. I can see some use but obviously work needs to be done on them.

Love Chrome, use it as my default browser.

True that. Though I change the names for most bookmarks to a shorter name to make it all a little bit nicer. I usually just dump all random bookmarks in the "Other Bookmarks" menu and have the important ones on the bookmarks bar. So I wasn't really bothered by the long names bug :p

Where does one enable this flag?

I really wish about:labs had more options, like the tabbed version of options etc. It only offers Side-Tabs which are easy to get by the --tag. They should have all the --tag features under about:labs.

"-enable-accelerated-compositing" is put after chrome.exe in the shortcut target properties.

the good thing about side tabs

is that you can easily now use aero snip

not mention it waste less space for wide screen panel

If not: --enable-gpu-plugin --enable-gpu-rendering --enable-accelerated-2d-canvas --enable-video-layering --enable-webgl --enable-fastback

Hmmm, I don't like the fact that I can't remove stuff from the new tab page :(
