since when did gmail chat start showing desktop notifications when you get an IM? i can't find a way to disable it and i currently have it set to "Do not allow any site to show desktop notifications"

using 17.0.963.12 dev-m

That's been around for about a year. If you can't disable it through Chrome's settings, you can disable it in Gmail's settings.

Anyone know of a way to preserve the chrome window between reboot and sleeps?

Ganon posted:

Speaking of preserving, a while back the dev release started remembering what you had open after closing the browser. But it only lasted a few days and then went back to starting fresh after closing/reopening. Strange.
Are you guys talking about re-opening the last tabs you had open when you close and re-open Chrome? Because, if so, that's in Preferences/Options->"On Startup: Reopen the pages that were open last" (under the "Basics" heading, first page.) Been there since near day 1.

Unless I'm completely misunderstanding you.

I'm pretty sure google tracks how people use chrome preeetty heavily...
It's not surprising that not many people use an option when it's hidden away in obscure settings. As for myself, until Chrome gets something as good as Tree Style Tabs, I'm going to stick to Firefox, regardless of how much of a system hog it is.

I am on the stable channel (version 16), and it looks like they've changed the bookmark/app/preferences sync behaviour. Previously, Chrome sync and logging into the web interface for a google service (eg. Gmail, Calendar etc.) were separate. With this version, they've merged the two and are calling the sync service "Chrome log-in". If I log out of Gmail, Calendar etc. it also logs me out of Chrome sync.

I much prefer the old behaviour.

I kind of like the idea that signing into chrome is the same as signing into google, and this way you can have multiple accounts using the same instance of chrome, but it is way way way too much of a stretch to making signing out of google on the web also sign you out in the browser.

Yea, I can definitely see the rationale behind chrome sign-in and I too like the idea of having multiple chrome 'profiles'. I just hope they're going to improve on the implementation, because I don't like it the way it is right now.

I've even gone as far as not having bookmark/preference sync for now because having the ability to sign off the web interface on this current computer is more important to me.

I took a look at the Chrome app store (I was installing Office 2010 on someones computer and I wanted to play Angry Birds to pass the time), why would I want to use the eBay web app instead of just going to eBay's website? Apps make sense on a tablet/phone but inside a web browser?

Speaking of Apps, how do I disable pop-up notifications in TweetDeck? The checkbox for popups is off in all my columns but they still come up. If I could do it on a per-machine basis that'd be even better, since I'd like them at home but not in work!

edit: Never mind, found it! Although it seems like TweetDeck randomly ignores some of the items in my Facebook news feed so I'll not be using it any more.

To be fair, a lot of early smartphone apps were really just portals for mobile websites.

I bet most devs/companies are waiting to see if the Chrome store really takes off, then might put some effort into their apps.

But as Bob Morales said, apps for websites make less sense in Chrome than apps on smartphones (where the platform has a disadvantage using the web).

Is there a recommended flash blocker for use with Chrome? There are quite a few on the chrome store and I'm not sure which is the best.

That extension, mentioned earlier in the thread, which switches to the last viewed tab after you close one is great, thanks!

There is a click to play function built into chrome. Go chrome://flags enable the click to play setting then go to chrome://settings/content and you'll find a new option click to play.

Auto-widen works fine, and for my settings (prefer 720p), it only switches to 720p if there's also a 1080p option. If the video only goes up to 720p, it goes to 480p. Weird.

God drat, the Chrome spellcheck function is inaccurate as gently caress. It flags "resellers" as being spelled incorrectly, along with some other common words that pass muster in a dictionary. What the hell list of words is it using to check spelling?

Tell me about the rabbits, George

One Firefox feature I really like is the live bookmark for following RSS and Atom feeds. I found a few extensions that tries to replicate the behavior but they either don't update the links or don't work at all.

Until I find one that works I'm using SlickRSS. I like it except I can't group up my feeds, I want to keep all my sports feeds in one folder, tech sites in another, etc.

So I guess is there either a live bookmark extension that works, or a reader extension that works totally in the browser and allows custom grouping / folders?

Other than that this has been the best browsing experience I've had in Linux. Chromium loads quickly and renders every site I've been to correctly.

I think you can group by folders in Google Reader, and there's a bookmarklet to let you subscribe in Google Reader straight from the page you're on.

And then you can use Feedly to make it all nice and pretty. Unless "totally in the browser" means not webpage based, as opposed to not being an external application, in which case I have no clue.

I was more looking for if there was some sort of general problem with Chrome that made it not work properly. You're right, though, I didn't give any useful information.

When I looked at my extensions list to see if there was something that could be causing the problem, I decided to go into the settings on Adblock Plus to see if I accidentally set something incorrectly. There was some entry for the forums in there (that I should probably have saved because I don't remember it now) that I didn't recognize which I deleted and now it seems as if images are loading properly again. (My guess is that I probably tried blocking an avatar or something on here and didn't do it right.)

This is probably what happened. There was a creepy avatar I saw earlier today. When I told Adblock Plus to block it, it also blocked all of SA's image server or something like that. I couldn't see avatars for a while until I got rid of that particular filter.

I'm coming from FF and wondering if there is a good video downloader extension? Looked through the store but couldn't seem to find a decent one. Could always open FF for when I need it, but it would be nice to have one that worked in Chrome.

Also, I'm using Google Sync, and it's kind of atrocious in regard to syncing bookmarks between two different systems. Sometimes when I get on my secondary machine, it will still have bookmarks that I've deleted on my primary machine (even days past). The secondary machine will then keep those old bookmarks and even propagate them to my primary machine. I've tried reconnecting my accounts and whatnot, and even posted to the help forum to no avail.

It also likes to loving rearrange the physical order of bookmarks I have in folders. Like I said, these issues only occur when I'm using two different machines, but it's almost enough to make me switch back to FF. At least there was a "sync now" option I could force changes with.

The latest chrome mac dev build has an annoying problem with animated gifs, they sometimes run at normal speed and sometimes run super fast. There's also this annoying white box, much bigger than the size of the gif and flickers constantly at the same rate as the gif.

I've attached a screenshot of a tab I had open with the problem, the banner image on the top right is an animated gif.

Beware updating for now!

Question - I'm using the dev version of Chrome and would love to use Chrome's default "new tab" page, but for me the bottom of it only shows "Most Visited", "Apps" and "Recently Closed".

Didn't that page used to have a link to all your bookmarks called "Bookmarks"? Any way to re-enable that?

I'm not sure you can without rolling back to an older version of Chrome, it's built-in. You could always try going to Beta if you're on Dev, or even back to Stable, and have a look in chrome://flags and try disabling anything fancy-schmancy with the graphics (GPU compositing and all that stuff)
