Do they have a changelog or anything like it listed anywhere? I'm curious as to what some of these bugs were.
You need to hunt down "googleupdate.exe" and hit the recycle bin with it. But by all means, don't take my word for it, wait for a second opinion.When did they change it to do automatic updates? Last two times I've launched Chrome and checked the version it's already updated. They might have launched a stable version of Chrome 12 but it's made my testing environment unstable unless I disconnect my machine from the internet. Can't seem to find any option to disable this automatic background update either...
If this browser won't do what you want it to, and the browsers you already have do, why are you forcing yourself on it? That's sort of like going on a date, with somebody who hates your guts.A browser for me is much more than software to surf the 'Net; I do most of my word processing in a text editor producing HTML documents. So the browser has to do all the "File" functions that the conventional word processor does.
Like others here; I am trying to make the move from Firefox to Google Chrome but the lack of Page Setup (especially margins and headers & Footers, etc.) makes it very difficult. Imagine using a brand new standards compliant browser for everything other than printing. When I want to print I have to use Internet Explorer.
Arris, in order to disable chrome's automated updating and possibly statistics / data sending to Google you have to go in the windows adminstrative task schedualler. upon chrome installation it automatically adds two (if i'm correct) processes to the windows task schedualler which automatically sets a frequent time of execution, in other words, if Chrome wants to update tommorow, it makes changes to windows task schedualler and writes that windows sould execute the hidden Chrome update process tommorow at a given time.
i think it works in the same way on other operating systems, it wouldn't surprise me.
