Chrome for Linux Dev Channel Update, Extension Shelf Now Uses GTK Theme Colors

Google Chrome

Amongst the various fixes for all platforms;
- the “Removal Item” from the download item context menu has been taken-off
- Omnibox, the combined search and address bar now understands Zeroconf .local hosts,

the Linux version gained a fix that makes it possible for Chrome’s extension shelf to use Linux GTK themes.
To set your Chrome for Linux Dev Channel to use GTK Theme Colors, go to Options -> Personal Stuff -> Set to GTK+ theme. Both the text and background should now come from the GTK theme, unlike before.
The “Other bookmarks” link is no longer cut-off in non-English Chromes for Linux, like the German version that saw the “Other bookmarks” being truncated instead of being re-sized.
Lastly, Applications shortcuts now work and use proper icon.

As concerns Chrome for Windows: The Native Client (“Native Client is an open-source technology for running x86 native code in web applications, with the goal of maintaining the browser neutrality, OS portability, and safety that people expect from web apps”.) is now built into the renderer but disabled by default. To enable it use the switch chrome.exe --internal-nacl. But a warning note says that, for now, using --internal-nacl disables the Google Chrome sandbox. So its recommend to run Google Chrome with this flag only for testing Native Client and not for regular web browsing.

Wrench Menu

Chrome for Windows also gets the Extensions menu item in the ‘wrench’ menu.
