The stock Android browser reflows text when you zoom. Unfortunately, Chrome does not. At my age this is just a deal breaker and I simply cannot use Chrome until they implement this feature.

Hurray for Chrome+Android!

I'd love to see a full-screen mode which got rid not only of the address bar but also of the soft keys on phones like the Galaxy Nexus. (Having more apps which use the screen real estate normally taken up by the soft keys seems like a great way to show OEMs and users the advantages of soft keys over traditional buttons!)

I hate the "Show Advanced Settings" option. Just show the "advanced settings" and don't waste our time clicking on something stupid.

At least yours hangs, when I go into settings, mine crashes. :(

I just discovered that if I want to run chrome on my smartphone I can give away my 1-year-old gingerbread based LG Optimus 2X and buy a cheap 3-years-old iPhone 3gs on ebay.
Well done Google...

Please add an "Always request desktop Site option" like the one on stock ics browser. This is a deal breaker for me since I don't want NBA mobile site on a tablet. thanks!
