Chrome 32 arrives with noisy tab indicators, Chrome OS-like Metro UI

  1. Google announced Tuesday the release of Chrome 32 for Windows, Linux and Mac. It's one of the biggest updates to the browser in recent times. Apart from security fixes, and stability and performance updates, the new version brings along many...

    So Google hacks into Windows 8, by integrating Chrome OS into Metro :)

    Will Microsoft add Metro app to Chrome OS in response? :) This is an interesting idea, but who would want to see Metro UI, say, on Linux or Mac OS? Same goes vice-versa.

    I have not upgraded since 21 or 22. They no longer know what they are doing when it comes to what I want so to heck with them

    FFS, they screwed up the only great gestures extension Chrome has, Pig Toolbox. Chrome is a case of "if it ain't broke, fix it until it is" these days. I had to change stuff in "flags" with almost every version, cause they keep testing stuff that's not to anybody's liking.

    I haven't noticed anything different about it so far but I never noticed any change in previous versions either. It's by far the best browser I've ever used and I've tried 'em all.

    That might be so, but you still need to fix holes in the code Version 32.0.1700.76 m
     
  10. For me it's the best browser, but only because it's made the other browsers bad. The popularity of Chrome prompted Firefox to adopt the same rapid release schedule as Chrome and with each iteration, Firefox has slowly been morphing into a poor Chrome clone. Opera likewise even adopted the same engine as Chrome at the cost of virtually all of the features that set Opera apart. Opera used to be my favorite by a mile but right now it's just sad.

    It's version 23 the one you want if you still want to be able to add extensions easily from Chrome's web store. I am with you though.

    I want performance, not features.

    The Linux version is quite all right, though. I hope they don't **** that up as well.
