Just trying Chrome beta in my EeePC701. It loads quickly and is very fast on the Internet, ideal for low powered computers. A couple of things need fixing. You can not reach the back button when in full page view (maybe the small 7" screen), the other thing is it does not return to the exact position in a list, only to the top (Opera is the same), this is a pain on Trade me.

The Ad blocker works well too.

Yup I love the speed, except with the Adblocker (Adsweep) when you load up a page the ads appear for a brief second and the disappear.

I tried the stable one last night. Too bad it doesnt save passwords. I said that in the feedback when I uninstalled it lol. Why have it, if it doesnt do anything

Of course it saves passwords? Even in the stable-2.0 release it should?

Gotta have the latest Dev version to get Extension support (4.0-Dev builds).

I agree, definitely the best for netbooks and the likes, though I use it 24/7 on anything I can get my hands on. Portableapps have the 4.0-Dev as a portableapp which is awesome!!

The Beta version 4.0.249.43 seems to be stable and saves passwords.

Yup this is the version I am using. You can use extensions on the Beta Channel you don't have to be on the Dev channel and every version of Chrome I have used from Stable to Beta to Dev has saved passwords. Go to Wrench / Options / Personal Stuff and you can toggle the choice off or on.

I can't get Chinese fonts to work with XPpro, they are Ok with W7.
Firefox and IE6 have no problem with these fonts in the same machines.
The fonts are displayed as squares.

Chinese works fine with Firefox & IE6 so it must be a Chrome problem.

Try AdBlock+, I've never seen the ads at all with this and pages load faster. I'm using Chrome 4.0.249.43 on Ubuntu Linux 9.04.

I also had a problem with passwords not being saved until I checked the settings and found password saving was not turned on: Wrench, Options, Personal Stuff, check "Offer to save passwords".

Thats odd, it's always been enabled on all the builds I've used for the last 12-odd months ?
