Windows 7: aero peek not working in latest chrome canary + dev updates

aero peek not working in latest chrome canary + dev updates

hi all is anyone else experiencing this issue in chrome? the way most users got aero peek working was as follows

this is how we used to get the aero tabs working

1. Locate your Chrome or Chromium shortcut. There should be one on your desktop and one in your start menu – either one will work.

2. Right Click the shortcut and choose properties.

3. Find the target box (it will be highlighted when the properties screen appears).

4. Left click at the end of the line (after chrome.exe).
Press space.

5. Add your command line switch. –enable-aero-peek-tabs The result looks like this:

C:\Users\bry\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe –enable-aero-peek-tabs
Instead of bry, it will be your username of course.

I don't see any Aero Peek problem...then again I use a portable chrome version (9.0.597.0 right now).

I mention it because that might be a solution for people where the published workaround doesn't do it.

Aero Peek tabs with Firefox, Chrome, etc?
Do you think it will ever happen? Is it even possible? Or is it only possible in IE because of OS integration?
