I'll throw in this extension which makes Chrome jump to the last tab you looked at when you close the current one - why this functionality isn't built into the browser I have no idea but there it is.

Also Hover Zoom is swishness and also usually works on TIMGes, although they've seemed to not want to work all the time recently. It's great for browsing in general though, and works on text links too.

chrome://flags has a smooth scrolling option as well which is worth enabling

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)

Ohhh interesting, so it's really just a bundled plugin then huh

EDIT: I don't even know if this is the right thread for this, but does anyone know what the hell this is?



That blob appears on my Gmail page all the time, it's always in a different place on the screen when I load Gmail (sometimes it's a while before I spot it, like if it's over my list of emails) and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason behind it. It's like a little shaded circle with a drop shadow, and I just noticed that it blinks if I hit the x key while I'm typing.

What does it want??

That's style, man.

No it's meant to be that way now - not exactly user-friendly, I guess they're trying to imply that it's another tab waiting to be brought forth into existence or something. What bugs me most is it just looks slightly wrong, something about the curves and the angles doesn't fit with the shape of the tabs

Yeah I think they just changed their mind and incorporated it into google itself. So long as you come back from a linked page quick enough they'll pop up a link (that fades in from red) asking if you want to block that domain.

I'm pretty sure they use the 'how quick you came back from a link' metric in their ranking calculations too, so I guess they're giving you a way to be more definitive about your thoughts on the site

Some people like the current functionality. I remember installing an addon that made tabs open directly beside the current one way back when on firefox.

It's the 'last used' functionality I use it for, which would be a nice option but it makes more sense as the default too. If I switch to a tab and close it, surely I should be back on the previous one, and not whatever random tab happens to be on the far right?

I didn't think I could either, but it's pretty much worked out - if you ever accidentally hit the X and go 'wait, poo poo' you can always open a window and click the '34 tabs' or whatever in your recently closed list to get it all back, only works for the last window though.

Honestly weird stuff seems to rarely happen in Beta, usually Dev gets all the glitches and they're caught before they filter down to the later releases. But anyway, have a look in chrome://flags and try enabling the Disable Print Preview one - I don't know if it will actually help but I think it just appeared in this release, so it's worth a try. If not, there's not some automatic 'resize to page' thing enabled is there? If the printout is shrinking it sounds like an output scaling issue

They probably made a recent tweak that messed it up - for what it's worth it seemed fine when I enabled the lot recently, then I hit one site where scrolling was messed up and I had to turn it off. Seems to work for everything else though (including CSS and SVG) so hey, more things on = good!

Who's on Dev, who's on Beta, and who's stuck it out with Stable? I've been on Dev since Chrome came out in 2008 but have considered switching to Beta or even Stable now that a lot of Dev features have made it to Stable. I'm also getting annoyed when a new Dev release comes out and breaks something fundamental like tooltips or URL previes.

I've been on Beta the whole time and I've rarely hit any problems. I know people say the same about Dev, but when there are problems they sound pretty annoying, and they tend to be ironed out by the time Beta catches up. Feels like the sweet spot between stability and updates

I've disabled ALL extensions, and Chrome still manages to crap out when the Save As window pops up.

I saw something similar once, it turned out to be a big zip file in the downloads folder that MSE was diving on as soon as the explorer window looked at it, so MSE was hogging the processor and seemingly doing nothing.

That sounds like a general internet problem, maybe DNS? If you get a page like that and open Developer Tools in the Tools menu, and go to the network tab, when you load a page you'll get a list of all the items that were loaded and how long it took for each. You can hover over the little graph and get a breakdown for each item, it should give you some clues.

But yeah, was that broken image from imgur? The broken imgur page is a missing stylesheet (.css file) so you might be having trouble reaching their domain. If it's consistent, check with another browser if you can, to see if it's a Chrome issue or just crap internet

It looks like the text just isn't being antialiased, unless there's some other glitching I'm not noticing. I'm not really sure why it would show up on multiple installations on multiple computers, but that's what I'd look into. It's not all the same font is it?

Do you have Cleartype set up on your computer? None of your text looks antialiased, even on the tabs and the browser UI itself. That doesn't excuse the jankiness, but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if that Open Sans font is only designed to be smoothed, or if Chrome's rendering relies on it. There's definitely some weird kerning with your replacement font (like having an adjacent de smooshed together), I'm not sure if that's normal though.

I just turned Cleartype off (although you apparently still have to tweak it, so I guess it's not actually 'off' anymore?) to check and it looks awful. It doesn't mess up in the same way but other places look awful (like the URL bar - all uneven thicknesses and weird spacing) so I reckon try turning it on and see how far you get. Might require a restart or something if nothing changes
