    Did it stop supporting H.264 as a video format?

    Did they add an installation directory option? That's number one on my wish list.
     
  4. No. Chrome 9 still supports H.264. That's sad.

    I think it's as of version 10 that it's removed.

    I'm using the Chrome 9 Beta on both my laptop and desktop. I remember reading on the Chromium site that the beta version is scheduled to move to version 10 around the middle of this month.
     
  8. Re: installation directory

    The Google Standalone Installer MSI installs to Program Files rather than a "per user" install. It's not a choice really, but it's something.

    The only problem I have with the new Chrome thus far is the fact that nobody seems to know how to access installed themes they downloaded from the web store. I was just cycling through themes thinking it'd be like Opera or Firefox where it's easy to view all your installed themes and be able to switch back and forth...boy was I wrong. So when it comes to theme installation and access, Chrome SUCK SUCKS SUCKS!!! (as you can tell, ease of customization is a VERY important factor for me, lol)

    matrix86, be happy with your firefox then :D. I guess I'm a lucky guy then when I have zero issues with Chrome/Chromium.

    Wow, on version 9 already, they sure aren't holding back. :haha:

    Tried it for a few mins on my laptop a while back, but tbh Firefox offers everything I need in a web browser, so its very doubtful I'll change.

    The last time I looked they didn't support password retrieval for Xmarks either, and thats a major thing for me with so many 16 digit randomly generated passwords.
     
     
  12. Did they make a Master Password on it yet? That should be the critical security update.
