Hell yeah! The combo box scroll is finally working again. Please Chrome do not repeat that kind of amateur bug and let the beta stays beta as long as needed to detect/fix those primary things ! It's been a real pain in the...

peacekeeper.futuremark.com test does still not work. Webgl has wrong colours and hardware acceleration does not work. How can big company like google mess stable channel like this?

Text of custom themes on the "new tab" page goes white again. That worked in the previous stable build!

Same issue from 32.0.1700.76:

Same as old9 above. Open a recently closed window. It "shows blank page even when contents are all loaded and rendered". If I load the google homepage and page back to the blank page, now it is displaying properly. This is tiring.

Checkerboard came back with scrolling and they got rid of this experiment "GPU compositing on all pages" which i had always set to disable, it really stabilized my browser and sped everything up, and that option is gone now from flags. Why? Seriously stop

Can't resize "Edit Bookmark" window. This used to work for 31.0 and before.

How can i turn off gpu compositing on all pages now without that flag? That was the cause of all of my problems and you just brought back the monster.

Smitty said...

Found out how to go back to old version of chrome temporarily. navigate through appdata - local - google - chrome - application, and double click on old_chrome to launch to version before this update. As you can see in my screenshot it is IMPORTANT that you bring back gpu compositing flag, as i really rely on that. Take a look thank you, http://imgur.com/krba559

Were there any changes to touch gestures?
Updated and now a swipe left or right sends you back or forward. Not a gesture I want within a web app.

I now, with this update, seem to be getting two identical tabs opening whenever I click on a web link in an email message in Thunderbird (which hasn't updated since December, so it's not that).

Version 32.0.1700.102 m (Windows) -- scrollwheel intermittently invokes the zoom function, making the browser virtually unusable.

I suppose this is linked to the removal/breaking of OS widgets for scrolling.

@Smitty: you can add command line switch at the end of the shortcut to the "chrome.exe" file, as follows:
"...chrome.exe" --disable-gpu-compositing
For more details, please have a look here:
Run Chromium with flags.

Thanks, fixed this issue. How many other users will be able to find this fix??

Smitty said...

I suppose that's not the issue then. I added the command switch and i'm still getting checkerboard while scrolling most pages and switching tabs / opening a new tab produces extreme lag. Yet when i use the old version of chrome with compositing disabled all my problems are fixed and they reappear when enabled on 31.0.1700.102. I wonder if there is a new experiment or something else new that got added to 32.0.1700.102

I am on windows7 x64 / older intel chipset

Smitty said...

oops i meant older version 31.0.1650.63
