One other change Google introduced in Chrome 24 is that Bookmarks are now searched by title when typing into the Omnibox. Matching bookmarks are shown in the autocomplete suggestions pop-down list, with matching done by prefix.
That about wraps it up for what's new. Bear in mind that Chrome follows a rapid-release schedule, therefore new builds aren't as feature packed as they once were.
Updating now. Can't wait to experience all this bug-fixy goodness.
I hope this takes care of my 'Shockwave has crashed' error messages.
Ugh, that's frustrating, isn't it? You're probably rocking two versions of Flash, the one baked into Chrome and the OS version. I disabled Chrome's Flash plugin and have been golden ever since. You can do this by:
1. Type "about:plugins" in the Omnibar (no quotes)
2. Look under the heading for Adobe Flash Player. If you see 2 entries, continue.
3. Disable the one that starts with "C:\Users..." and restart Chrome.
Erg...tonight I got the same error message again: "Shockwave Flash has crashed". I'll try your suggestion and see if it works for me, Paul. Interestingly I never received an e-mail that you had replied to this thread. I wonder if the HH e-mail delivery system is down as I haven't received an e-mail since January 6th!
