I just installed Ubuntu yesterday, after using Windows exclusively since 1995. Today I downloaded Google Chrome because that's my favorite web browser. I followed the directions at How to launch a newly installed program to launch Chrome and lock it to the Launcher. Unfortunately ...
A few hours ago Chrome closed on my MacBook Air with OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 and there's no way to recover it. Everytime I try to launch it quits with the message "Google Chrome has quit unexpectedly", giving me the option to send a report to Apple, Ignore, or restart Chrome. And the same happens afterwards.
Google is pulling a sneak attack of sorts on Windows 8 Metro Mode. Google Chrome OS can be set to launch from within Windows 8 Start Screen. While still buggy, if you are the adventurous type, you can download Chrome OS from the Google Dev Channel and give it a shot.
I created some webapps in Google Chrome that will open in their own windows, like Google Keep, for example. But whenever I open them, it will say Google Chrome in the black bar (Gnome Shell) and in overview, it will be listed as a Google Chrome window rather than its own. Meaning I have to move around and actually find the window rather than simply clicking on it in the dash.
