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?

Yes. Those are notes, not warnings or errors, I put in there.

Done, I hope you're right.

StartupWMClass has changed again. First letter should be capitalized: Google-chrome-unstable

Det commented on 2016-08-03 10:38

Canary? It's not for Linux.
