No, I think that's only if you run GNOME. I didn't need it, and it's already an optional dependency.

gnome-keyring is probably a new dependency, before installing it chrome would crash with 'Gkr-Message: secret service operation failed: The name org.freedesktop.secrets was not provided by any .service files'

Mmmm. No it isn't.

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

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

That commented bit http://mirror.glendaleacademy.org 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?

Missing dependency: gtk3
/opt/google/chrome-unstable/google-chrome-unstable: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Well, yes, from: https://www.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel

"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 https://archive.archlinux.org/packages/c/ca-certificates-utils/.
