You can’t knock a decent update.

Late Tuesday, Google released a beta of version 22.0.1229.79 of its Chrome web browser. The update, a 44 megabyte download, adds the following fixes and changes:

– Mouse Lock API availability for Javascript.

– Additional Windows 8 enhancements.

– Continued polish for users of HiDPI/Retina screens.

Google Chrome 22.0.1229.79 requires an Intel-based Mac with Mac OS X 10.5 or later to install and run. If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.

  1. very smooth and a bit faster + changed some stuff with the Settings button and style of it too.

  2. My experience is that Google Chrome, now that I’m on the new 22 version, no longer works on pages that have much flash. Pages freeze and can’t scroll — like New York Times homepage — games (like Lexulous boards in Facebook) don’t finish loading and can’t scroll. On YouTube, sound runs, but all screens are black holes. *I can’t even open my Google-created GMAIL* since Chrome updated itself–without asking me. I choose Chrome over Firefox for one reason: convenience. How convenient is it that I’ve spent half a day trying to fix this BS problem (I’m on a perfectly capable 2011 MacBook Pro running Lion)? Convenient enough to turn me back into a Firefox or Safari user. Complete asinine utter failure nosedive crash and burn uselessness from the Mountain View crew.

    I have the exact same problem! Have you reported this to Google Chrome? I’m forced to use Safari for the meantime…
