The latest update brings only a handful of bug fixes
Google has just announced that Android enthusiasts who continue to test its Chrome browser can now download a new beta version via Google Play.The search giant has just provided a small update that brings several bug fixes, but no new feature or improvements. Check out below the full list of issues that have been addressed in the latest update:
- Graphical corruption and blank tabs in tab switcher mode;
- Most Visited section thumbnails are misaligned in landscape mode for RTL languages;
- Search is still performed via Google when re-submitting omnibox query after switching search engine;
- Flicker while opening new tabs;
- Fixes for some frequently occurring crashes;
- chrome://history sometimes show duplicate items.
According to Google, update 27.0.1453.60 for ARM and x86 contains a lot more minor fixes than those detailed here.
However, there are still some problems that need to be corrected in future updates. Until Google releases another version of Chrome Beta, here are this iteration’s known issues:
- Opening tabs is sometimes slow;
- Pages may flicker sometimes, especially during navigation;
- Typed character gets deleted sometimes on password fields.
Given the fact that this is still a work in progress, Android fans that use Chrome Beta are invited to inform developers of any new issue or bug they find in this version.
It is also worth mentioning that Android users can install Chrome Beta alongside the current version of Chrome for Android without any trouble. Both applications are available on Google Play.
Keep in mind though that Chrome Beta will request additional permissions when using Chrome Sync for the first time.
Chrome Beta 27.0.1453.60 is now available as a free download via Google Play Store and it should be fully compatible with all devices running Android 4.0 and up. Check it out here.
