i've been using version 2 for weeks with windows 7 x64 with no problems at all, no registry hacks, and flash works fine too. the 32bit browser works great in my 64bit OS - try it yourself!

the guys above are discussing beta version 3.

but why oh why does it install itself into c:/users/*username*/appdata/local/google/chrome/application? what's wrong with program files (x86)/chrome???
Google seems to make a habbit of installing their apps, and work folders in weird places.

Ever checked out where Google Earth saves it's files?

Thanks for your info.
Its things like those silly install problems you mentioned that I'm interested in.
Most programs usually display the default install folder during install but also give you the option of changing the install folder.
Did Chrome not even give you an option?

no - i always go for custom install, but no option with chrome.

it's no big problem having the files stored there, it just seems odd...
