Chrome Beta for Android Update

Chrome Beta for Android has been updated to 25.0.1364.64 on Google Play. This build will be rolling out over the next few hours. This update contains a number of fixes, including:
  • Updated graphics architecture that greatly improves fast scrolling on large pages 
  • 163439 - page links are not working 
  • 166233 - Cannot submit comments on facebook posts or pictures 
  • 169616 - Keyboard pops up after Chrome is closed 
  • 170653 - Scroll position is reset momentarily when double-tapping in footer/gutter on some pages 
Known Issues:
  • Lower resolution/blurry content takes time to sharpen during rapid scrolling on certain websites. 
  • Graphical corruption and flicker on some sites, particularly on (reloading the page can mitigate this issue). 
  • Text autosizing may break formatting on some sites. 
  • 169918: Text selection and text input handles appear at incorrect positions 
  • 158633: Overaggressive tap disambiguation popup 
  • Increased number of sad tabs/tab crashes. 
A partial list of changes in this build is available in the SVN revision log. If you find a new issue, please let us know by filing a bug. More information about Chrome for Android is available on the Chrome site.

Please add a scrolling indicator For the top and the bottom of the page.

When will you fix the zoomed in issue on some sites?

Matt Stow said...

No matter how good Chrome for Android gets, I will never use it unless it implements reflowing of zoomed text, just like the AOSP Browser. It is my most used feature and I could not live without it.

I logged a bug/feature request ages ago, here:

Any progress on WebAudio ?

Blank white pages only :-(
All tabs load but show only a white background. No contents. On an S2 running ICS stock.

1. I still do not see anything about the auto-translate feature - which would finally bring something to differentiate the program from all the other browsers that are faster and/or smaller.

2. Still the beta does not work with stuff like Adblock - that stuff works perfectly in the non-beta version or in the stock browser.

BTW, why is it that after this update all sites are zoomed-in more than before? I don't mean the known issue of some sites loading zoomed in, I mean that now all sites load with almost no side borders.
