UI has been fixed, SD card can now be read, other graphical changes, such as in the file browser.
So is the new color change intentional? I feel like this comment indicates the top bar's supposed to revert back to black, eventually:http://code.google.com/p/chromium-os/issues/detail?id=14276#c12On the other hand, the issue's marked fixed . . .I think I like the old battery icon better. I can see why the UI team dropped the AM/PM, probably superfluous.I'm still annoyed how the window switcher icon fails to work in the corners:http://code.google.com/p/chromium-os/issues/detail?id=13058Yes, I also think the file browser's coming along (I hope and assume we'll have previews for pdfs, docs, etc. some day).Here's an aside. I think Media Player got axed from about:flags, a while ago. Does anyone think it's ever coming back, or is it going the way of the Gdrive (in favor of online players)?
Just spotted a new extension.Picasa Uploader:https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/hpfomeedmekonipambfkmjfacahlngjd"Not for general use. This is for testing only." . . .
The Picasa Uploader seems to work from the media browser, as I took a screenshot and had the option to upload it to Picasa from the File Shelf. It'll likely be bundled with Chrome OS.
Ah, yes. Thanks for pointing this out, Nick. I gave the uploader a quick peek, and I like where it's headed. I especially like the bulk file upload (seems like I remember having to upload files one at a time, at some point).Also, I see the slideshow feature's been reintroduced (although, I may have just missed it on the past build or two). I think we have to select which files we want to view in it, rather than the viewer simply selecting all pictures in the folder.Finally, I think both features currently show up in the ctrl+m viewer only (rather than in the ctrl+o viewer, as well).
Hmm...I like this new look. Also, the OS is being really smooth so far!
I have updated to this version , i recently saw a blog post on another site about user icons on chrome os , they look cool and I would like to use them but the only ones i have available are blank people with diffferent background colors green blue red . these are the icons im talking about http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2011/05/download-the-default-user-avatars-for-chrome-os/
Anyone else have to disable and enable the wi-fi before gmail will load?? I've had this issue for a long while. I've recently switched to Dev Mode (battery compartment) and back after being annoyed with the lengthy frowning laptop warning screen. SO the stateful partition has been cleared a couple times. It's mainly GMail and sometimes Facebook.
