I updated my Chrome today, but I have problems yet =/
I can't watch videos on FullScreen, when I see "Windows Task Manager" the CPU usage always High and the video has lag.
If I disable PepperFlash all works fine for me. Please help me!

Need Widgets (besides Apps) on Chrome new tab page : Just like the Android (samsung galaxy s3) has Widgets and apps, I need Widgets also on the Chrome new tab page, and Chrome webstore to have a Widgets section as well. Widgets are more than Apps, because they are more interactive, similar to gadgets. Can the gadgets be also moved to Chrome widgets in chrome webstore ?

Need “Direct dial” widget on Chrome new tab page : just like the Android (samsung galaxy s3) has the “Direct dial” widget that allows one-click voice call to a particular contact, I would like this “Direct dial” widget on Chrome new tab page, that will use Google voice to make a phone call to a contact, from laptop chrome browser. Please provide this capability.

Get rid of the blank page in the Omnibox, or bring back the globe. Did you know that a blank page is now shown on the Bookmarks Bar now for numerous websites, where before (the previous update) the icon for the website's icon was always shown in the Bookmarks Bar.

Ever since they introduced Pepper Flash in previous stable version & this version, I've encountered chrome process 25% CPU on quad core. The process is related to Flash. On my 64-bit Win7, if I go to about:plugins & disable Pepper Flash, problem goes away. Running latest version of Adobe Flash.

Not seeing problem on 32-bit Vista or a 64-bit Win8 Preview version.

Still issues with youtube, plus the memory usage is up t the sky now...

iam still having problems

I noticed massive ram usages and crashes related to Flash. Chrome is using too much resources (CPU) is there a reason for this?
Also I can't really use any flash application due to instant freeze crash/ youtube videos make jerky sounds I went near deaf ! ( I'm not joking it gives out high pitch noises at random times) Can you please fix these problems.
We love you Chrome =)

Something went wrong with css transitions. I have version 21 on Win XP and version 18 on Linux. After last update on Windows, all css transitions works strange.

I have noticed lag when dragging windows with flash content across the screen, windows without flash content are fine. I tried the same in ie9 and had no lag whatsoever.

This is using a 3930k, gtx 580 and 16gb of thinks this is a bug!
