I ran an Acid3 test with this build and they are now at 98/100. Really impressive jump. The new Webkit release probably helped a lot ;)

wow, yes also impressed with the acid test – i'm getting 100/100 but with the link test failing & miss-drawing the shadow on 'Acid3'

I love that they added tabs that dock differently based on whether you drag them to the left/right of the screen vs. the top of the screen.

As stated here [] this will be chrome v. 2 and for the features included it would make more sense to have v. 1.something?

Yea, the tabs docking rocks hard. I love it. I also like full page zoom, autoscroll, and auto-complete is nice. I've long thought that at just core browsing it's the best browser out there, but they're getting pretty close to being the best at everything.

My one minor complaint... The autoscroll icon is pretty ugly--why doesn't it use the windows default autoscroll cursor like other apps?

This page is also W3C valid... strange!

And they add a address bar in mini window in this release.

Any word on when the MAC version will be released?

Chrome is a quite a good and feature rich browser and with smart marketing tricks it will surely reach amongst the top three within no time. The coming times will tell which one out of the IE, FF and Chrome will top the browsing market. One who will provide more features and useful add-ons will ultimately grab the top spot.

I use Chrome at work where (as expected) there is a proxy server. I find that while Chrome 1.x works properly (it pops a dialog to enter the Windows user id and password to access the external sites; not all users have rights to access the wider net..they are limited to a small subset of sites like Msdn or get the drift) Chrome 2.x just doesn't work.

I mean, it doesn't display the popup and so it just displays the error message (that is displayed for users who don't have rights to access the net). Any idea how can I teach or make Chrome 2.x to display the dialog that accepts the userid and password? I have checked the LAN settings and other settings, and can't find ANY difference with the settings I have for Chrome 1.x (I am not running or attempting to run the two versions simultaneously).
