Now Chrome for Android is only 5 major version behind at 18.

I am very angry that chrome OS is already receiving Pepper Flash 11.4 and the Windows Chrome has still yet to receive the 11.4 Pepper Flash. I think Google is too busy adding useless stuff that developers besides Google have yet to use and not working on the core parts of Chrome to make it a better browser for everyone else besides just Google sites themselves.

Chrome 23!!!

I like the new blank favicon (though I miss the globe favicon) but I don't like the new tab close button color: orange?

Not really liking the way the omnibox highlights or the color of the close tab button to be honest.

In this build, I cannot copy/paste a weblink as a link.
It just paste as plain text (like ctrl+shift+V for shortcut ).
Anybody experienced this too?

The downloaded files list is now in messed up order for me, not chronological like it used to be.
And i can't see the option to sort it :/

Kylamiis, Yes the downloads tab is currently not sorted correctly, but it's already fixed for the next update (fixed in crbug.com/151756 ).

In the meantime, you can use the search box in that tab to locate a specific download.

Not liking the new close tab icons. Doesn't fit the rest of chromes iconography.

The new close tab button seems to be bigger than before. I have by accident closed, instead of switching focus to, tabs twice in the past hour, something that previously happened perhaps twice a week. Yes, I use a lot of tabs which probably makes this change affect me more than others (I usually only see favicon and a couple of the first letters).

Perhaps this could be adjusted slightly, since the button activates a pixel or two outside the actual 'red' close animation?
