Chrome(ium) fixed for Windows 7 x64 Beta
Wednesday, 04 February 2009 08:43:38 UTC ( Browsers | Windows 7 )

The latest nightly builds of Chromium now includes a fix for the sandboxing issues experienced on Windows 7 x64 Beta, and the –no-sandbox hack is no longer needed and security and stability is restored. I’m certain this fix will make it into the developer, beta and release channels soon.

Multi-monitor and Windows 7

A just noticed that Windows 7 has added support for moving windows between monitors.

Use Win+Shift with Left or Right arrow key to move the current window around. You can also do some fun positioning when combining the Windows key with the arrow keys.

Much appreciated improvements!

Live Mesh ready for Windows 7

The latest version of Live Mesh doesn’t disable Aero anymore, and throws in better conflict handling as a bonus.

Live Mesh has become a critical part of my computer setup, and this is the final piece that completes my Windows 7 installation --  and everything is working great!

You can get the updated build at or simply trough the built-in updater if you were tough enough to survive without Aero.

Windows 7 x64 Beta 1 and Google Chrome

If you you’ve tried to install Google Chrome v1.0 on Windows 7 x64 Beta 1 you have seen a number of warnings about compatibility, and Chrome crashes whenever you load a page. There are some problems with the Chrome sandboxing model and Windows 7 x64, so if you run Chrome with the parameter –no-sandbox everything should work fine.

Happy testing :)
