I was lucky enough to receive a Cr-48 just before Christmas (thanks Santa!). I don’t do anything really crazy with it. You know, email, surfing, the occasional Google Docs editing, etc. Having the 3G has come in very handy, though. Anyway, I just got the Beta channel update for 0.10.156.46, which includes an update to Google Chrome 10.0.648.116. So far, it sounds like mostly bug fixes, none of which I have experienced. After the last update, I noticed the startup time and general usage seemed to slow down a bit. I’m hoping I’ll see a little performance boost.
Here’s the post regarding this update: http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/2011/03/chrome-os-beta-channel-update.html
Additionally, I recently turned on 2-step verification security for my Google account. So far so good. I do feel a bit better knowing there’s an extra layer of security around my account. That’s all fine and good, however, on my Cr-48, I was seeing a Sync Error and my Chrome bookmarks and plugins weren’t syncing. Pressing the button that was supposed to let me enter a password did nothing.
After this update, I was able to correct the issue by opening Settings -> Personal Stuff and selecting to sign-in. After entering my password, I had to generate an application specific password, and I was good to go!
