    of course i can not find where i bookmarked this in the chrome bookmarks. go into the google forum and look up old google bookmark version or something like that and it'll show you how to get the old version. the new version was changed for touch pad leaving the rest of us out in the cold. sorry i cant be more help.
    They have also taken their Voice/Chat changing it into Hangouts forcing me to go revert back and forth to the old programs so I can chat with my contacts.
    Some crap about not being in the same federation. WHAT EVERY HAPPENED TO JOINING TOGETHER FOR WORLD PEACE?!!!
    GOOGLE IS WREAKING ALL THEIR PROGRAMS. THEIR TWEAKINGS ARE MESSING EVERYONE UP. I'M SERIOUSLY THINKING OF GOING TO MOZILLA OR SAFARI. Good Luck.

    "Worst browser since the beginning of the internet"

    June 17, 2015  |   By SINEKTUS

    Version: Google Chrome 43.0.2357.124

    Pros

    Are you kidding me?

    Cons

    A 320 TB RAM computer will probably start using the pagefile if Chrome is running.

    Slow, very heavy on resources and full of bugs.

    Once, it froze up the system, and I was on an i3 platform, 4GB RAM, modern computer. Like complete computer freeze. Used so much resources that the OS just halted.


    Working as an IT specialist, I actually had to modify my diagnostic procedures because of Chrome. Many people come to me and say "the computer is slow", and we all know that means viruses, low disk space, dusty coolers and stuff like that. It turns out that in many cases, the poor fellows just used Chrome on their computer.

    Summary

    I had better expectations from one of the biggest companies in the world...

    "Was a really superb browser"

    June 7, 2015  |   By macbean

    Version: Google Chrome 43.0.2357.81

    Pros

    None any more to think of

    Cons

    Crashes, constantly trying to add a Google app extension I don't want, loses sign-in credentials, bookmarks are now a disaster

    Summary

    What the hell are those people at Google thinking these days? Screw 'em. They had a great web browser but kept trying to "improve" upon it. Take the new bookmarks for instance. Gawd, I hate those. Looks like they're trying to emulate the original Windows 8 look, which consumers rejected en masse. I changed to Chrome when Firefox was beginning to run really slow. Well, the folks at Mozilla have taken care of the speed problems, and so going back to Firefox was an easy decision for me. Bye, bye Chrome. It was nice while it lasted.

    "Since the update to 42.0.2311.135 Flash crashes"

    May 4, 2015  |  

    Version: Google Chrome 42.0.2311.135

    Pros

    I used to love this product. However, I always used the regular flash and disabled the pepper flash because of the constant crashes.

    Cons

    They no longer support anything but the pepper flash, which crashes about 40 times a day. Frustrating. Please correct this - I really don't want to switch browsers. I can't tolerate the constant crashing though.

    Summary

    We need a rollback option - the new version is terrible.

    "Lost a lot of data following a Chrome update."

    May 1, 2015  |   By jomigagain99

    Version: Google Chrome 42.0.2311.135

    Pros

    Can't think of any, since I have now switched browser to Firefox.

    Cons

    As one line summary.

    Summary

    I have used Google and Google Chrome forever. Then, about a week ago, I found a whole raft of Excel files had disappeared. From having 42 GB of free space left on C: drive I now have 50 GB free, so I guess my files are no more. I am only guessing that it was a Google glitch, because I am only partly computer savvy; anyway I'm playing safe and moving on. Sad, that, because I really liked the early Google.

    "Resources Hog Shows Little Restraint No Responsibility"

    April 29, 2015  |   By Poppypbr

    Version: Google Chrome 42.0.2311.135

    Pros

    Clean, clear cut appearance graphically. It what they do in the background that causes problems for the private user.

    Cons

    Uses your computer to process its private commercial business transfers that has nothing to do with your browsing. Will sometimes peak to 80% CPU and available memory while on a stationary page, affecting response times, causing pauses and stutters. Ridiculous constant need to update on a nearly daily basis for several minutes as if it was the ONLY software on the planet that mattered. (And they can never get it right once and for all.) Your computer no longer belongs to you because they think it belongs to them. Violates the EULA with Microsoft's "looking the other way" approval. Security zero. Vulnerability 100%. Keeps plenty of ports open multiplying your chances of infection and takes no responsibility for hardware wear and tear, computer crashes that they caused. No offer of antivirus protection, no communication, no explanation, no contact whatsoever. Just change your computer to accommodate their needs without your permission to make the public internet their private tool.

    Summary

    Google, Microsoft, Verizon and AT&T need to be regulated by the FCC. They are dismantling the internet's usefulness through selfish corporate manipulation of private personal computers. Makes owning a good personal computer a liability. Simple and slow gets left alone. If you have crunch power to spare, you are a Google-Verizon-Microsoft-AT&T target.

    "Insecure and unstable"

    April 27, 2015  |   By matthew.laverick.5

    Version: Google Chrome 42.0.2311.90

    Pros

    COMODO Dragon/Chromodo (COMODO's fixed version) and Opera are based on this.

    Cons

    Chrome crashes, A LOT. Out of every virus I have tested in a virtual machine Chrome is the most infected.

    Summary

    You are better off with another browser - it is nearly as bad as IE6.
