Mmmm. No it isn't.

Oy vey. Seems like they stock the older versions now directly in

It's very clearly explained there the commented bit, although it seems they also 404 now.

That commented bit thing scares me. WTF?

Version 59.0.3067.0 has hi-dpi issues (the text and the overall interface is super tiny)

I don't have this issue on chromium (which is version 57.0.2987.133)

I use google-chrome-dev sparingly, so I just noticed this issue. It didn't happen one or two upgrades ago. Maybe it's a regression? If I find some time I can try to downgrade and see if it still happens.

Does anybody notice this behavior?

Well, yes, from:

"Dev channel: [...] There's no lag between major versions, whatever code we've got, you will get. While this build does get tested, it is still subject to bugs, as we want people to see what's new as soon as possible."

It should be taken for granted the Dev might crash. If you want to test, you can try renaming ~/.config/google-chrome-unstable/ and ~/.cache/google-chrome-unstable/, or downgrading ca-certificates-utils through /var/cache/pacman/pkg/ or

Also, the beta and the stable versions are working fine.

Hello, on updating this package from v58 to the latest version, Google Chrome loads homepage successfully, then crashes.

zsh: segmentation fault (core dumped) google-chrome-unstable

The only reason why I think this may occur is that I recently updated the package "ca-certificates-utils".
Any idea about how I can resolve this issue?
