Chrome 32 Stable has been released! The browser can now tell you which background tab is making the noise by displaying a small speaker icon on it.

Safe Browsing's malware warning is now stronger. You will see "The file is malicious" message in the download tray at the bottom of your screen, you can click “Dismiss” knowing that Chrome is working to keep you safe.

Chrome on Windows 8 'Metro' mode has gotten a new look. You can manage multiple Chrome windows and quickly get to your favorite Chrome Apps with an integrated app launcher.

Google's idea of running Chrome within Windows 8 'Metro' mode is clever. It's runs in full screen mode and looks very similar to Chrome OS with it's own launcher with some popular Google's web apps.

The tab indicator looks useful.

When I read about "Metro mode" I thought it's another UI made for touch screens, but it's really good. You can open multiple windows and snap them. It's like having another desktop under Windows 8's Start Screen.

Chrome keeps crashing for me too, tabs freeze up randomly and use up 100% Cpu when it freezes up. Just switch to another browser, Chrome is no longer that solid, simple browser that we used to know :'(

Same thing happens to me. I switched back to Firefox.

Go to the Chrome menu and select "relaunch in Windows 8 mode".

It's pretty crazy how Chrome switches from Metro to Desktop seamlessly while IE11 desktop and Metro are separate. Ah well, I still like IE11.

Did already find that menu entry ;) But nothing happens, chrome just closes and that's it.

 

Edit, duh, found it: you cannot move chrome in the start menu :)

Another reason I switched Firefox on my mac. I was constantly facing chrome locking up, tabs freezing, eating up my cpu with ridiculous amounts of useage per tab etc. Switched back to firefox nightly/ux and have had zero issues since. My brother has the same issues with in on his pc. Both our hardware is up to date so there's no reason and no excuse for it running into issues like this. An i5 and 4gb+ of ram, should not be having issues with a simple browser

Google Chrome’s most striking feature and a substantial factor in its popularity - the simple UI hasn’t changed much since the beta launch in 2008. Google focused on trimming down unnecessary toolbar space to maximise browsing real estate
