This a really good update, I haven't seen any other issues besides the one with the Google hangout (and waiting for Netflix for what it seems like an eternity.)

But in case anyone cares, they have completely removed the two finger web page back/forward gesture, at least from the Samsung Chromebook.

I find it the funny that they don't detailed what they remove. I'm guessing it's coming in a future update.

If you type in Chrome://flags in your URL bar in Chrome, you can enable various settings. As you scroll down you'll see various options for enabling gestures on the trackpad.
