Where are these Metro preferences you speak of? For the past couple of weeks, I can't get Chrome to open in Metro at all, despite being the default browser on Windows 8.

I think they are what they say they are, but that's just me.

Thanks Google Dev Team!

You can relaunch Chrome in Metro from the Chrome menu.

It seems that the Chrome to Mobile extension (https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chrome-to-mobile/idknbmbdnapjicclomlijcgfpikmndhd) has recently been integrated into Chrome, though I didn't notice it until this update. I uninstalled the extension and still have (seemingly) the same functionality from the Action Box button (the "+" at the end of the omnibox) using the "Send this page to your mobile device" command. Cool!

With the lastes osx update that removed java support from my mac, there is no way i can run java apps in chrome... The only download is java7 which is 64 bit and chrome is 32 bit.
So here we are : no java support in a browser with 20% worldwide marketshare... superb planning...

Ever since DEV v23 the sound problem with flashvideo is back, no sound in the rear speakers.
(in IE 10 the sound works perfect in all speakers)

Is it 64 bit yet on the Mac? All other browsers are 64 bit. Come on Chrome team, get your browser up to date. Time to go back to Firefox until the 64 bit Chrome is available.
