The Newest Chrome

A few weeks ago Chrome came out with another of its many updates. Since I am a whore for Google I downloaded it. Immediately I noticed problems:

- Shockwave Flash is riddled with problems in this version. It causes DevArt Chat to time out, pages to crash, web based media players to fail, etc. And since it's the backbone of the browser you can't fix it through Adobe.

- You can't switch audio devices without restarting the browser now. If you do, nothing audio based in Chrome will work, even if you try reverting to the original audio device. Apparently this has pissed off more than a few people.

And the thing is, I've been using Chrome since version six. It's now on version 23. I have my themes, apps and extensions the way I wanted them. All of my accounts are synced to the browser itself, as well as feeds. I don't want to swap to a different browser now, and have to reconfigure everything!

At this rate I will have to roll back to an old version, or get reacquainted with the Firefox UI.

Biggest complaint for me so far. So annoying when I have to restart the browser just to get sound to work. >( Hopefully they fix it in the next version.

I've had Flash problems with Chrome since the first day I started using it. But then again I started using it because Flash didn't work at all anymore on Opera...

If everything could just transition to HTML5 already this would be a non-issue.
