I´ve been using it for a while (beta) and its a great improvement. I loved the Flag menu but i still think that all the about:(menu) should be accesible through the Settings menu in the browser.

I didn´t like the PDF reader though. Missing some basic control-buttons and options. Very poor implementation.

I agree with @dkant1n the pdf viewer is lacking the features of adobe, to the point the save feature doesn't work and I had to use adobe via IE9, which is annoying, hoping I can default back to adobe for now.

I'm loving the PDF implementation. What features are you missing the most? I can save (right-click) on the document and choose Save As... You can search for text within the document.

The new Chrome takes over the computers default PDF program. Why? I understand using foxIT if there isn't a PDF browser installed on the machine. My company which actively supports 15,000 users will no longer be allowing people to use our secure PDF website in google Chrome. KK thanks!

Chrome is my favorite browser, but it has some errors that aren't even resolved in the developers channel (Chrome 9). Every once in a while, it will show a few images or all the images on a page as broken, and clearing the cache and refreshing fixes this. However, this is a reoccurring problem which gets annoying. Another thing is that it sometimes fails to load youtube at all, it just stops and shows a blank page. It also hangs sometimes when rendering facebook, sometimes just rendering the top bar then loading for an endless time. I have tried the stable, beta, and dev releases, none are immune to these. I have no idea whats wrong, anyone think they know?

Stop using the dev version and start using the stable release.

Amazing how you all big up everything apart from IE8 but you still grumble saying Firefox does this but Google Chrome does that and how Chrome 8 is a "big improvement". That suggests it wasn't quite as good as everyone says, and there's still improvements to be made. Make up your minds.
