Dev Channel Update

The Dev channel has been updated to 24.0.1290.1 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome Frame.  This build contains following updates:


  • Fixed issue where clearing browse data never completes with PPAPI flash plugin disabled. [Issue: 144874]
  • Fixed issue in disabling sync for default apps. [Issue: 152582]
  • Fixed crashes 154167, 153902, 152622.

Known Issues
  • Issue 154663: On Windows 8, if Chrome is set to use Windows 8 mode, it might launch in Windows 8 mode when trying to uninstall (and therefore fail to uninstall). Workaround: make another browser default (in Control Panel -> Default Programs) and then uninstall Chrome.

Full details about what changes are in this build are available in the SVN revision log. Interested in switching release channels? Find out how. If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug.

Using Win 7 Pro, SP1.

I downloaded the 24.0.1290.1 DEV file, but can't seem to install it.

I double click to install and the computer starts 'working' on it, but then nothing ever happens. No prompts or error messages.

I currently have 22.0.1229.92 installed. Do I have to uninstall that version of Chrome before installing the Dev version?

Every new version, Google Chrome Dev seems to be heavier, regarding Memory.

Also, Developer Tools Settings button and "Close" button of Downloads Bar are getting harder to click, like if only some pixels of the buttons are clickable.

In addition, seems Developer Tools Network Timeline is not logging all events. It seems messed, simply.

I hope you are aware about all of these issues. I understand it's just a "Dev" version, but it seems not improving much between new versions.

Adding that the mouse wheel doesn't work anymore in Developer Tools and Google Chrome Settings.

I have the same issue with the mouse wheel.
