Cr-48 Chrome OS Beta Update 0.10.156.46



Cr-48 Chrome OS Beta Update 0.10.156.46

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!
