Chrome Beta for Android Update

  • Updated graphics architecture that greatly improves fast scrolling on large pages 
  • 163439 - yahoo.com 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:

  • 169918: Text selection and text input handles appear at incorrect positions 
  • 158633: Overaggressive tap disambiguation popup
