    Chrome is now skipping a page when using the back button.
    This behavior is present at least 50% of the time.
    It has started with update from 26.0.1410.43 to version 26.0.1410.64.
    There was no such issue or behavior (for me) with .43.
    I have searched for this issue and see that it is well-documented, going back several years at least.
    So far, I have tried clearing browser data in Chrome history (as recommended in search results), which PERHAPS seems to help for a VERY SHORT time. But I clear this data at least once per day (often more frequently) using CCleaner and BleachBit, so that should not be a problem.
    This back button skipping is a real PITA. I hope it can get fixed.
    Anyone else experiencing this?

    ***Note: This is only happening on my Windows 7 machine, not on XP.

    I am also seeing two other 'broken' behaviors since upgrading from .43 to .64.
    One is that the window size changes (gets reduced) when closing a tab, and the other is that when clicking a link, sometimes the newly opened page will have all of the text highlighted (selected) upon opening, and I have to de-select it all.

    Are you by chance using an ad-blocker addon in Chrome? You know my history with Chrome, the back button and ad-blockers :D

    Yes, using AdBlocker (not plus), and I don't know your history with Chrome.
    Do tell. ;)

    You'll remember them when you search up my posts here, lol. To make it short and sweet, I constantly had issues with trying to go back a page in Chrome and it would never work at all or would take me back 2,3 pages. I'd remove ABP and it would work just fine 90% of the time (I do think the way some websites are coded messes with Chrome somewhat and even Firefox, because I'll find links that refuse to be click-able and stuff.).

    Supposedly AdBlock has less issues with this than ABP now, but I've been using FF lately so I don't know.

    Well, I certainly appreciate the input, Mman.
    I disabled AdBlock and still encounter the behavior from Chrome, though perhaps not to the extent I was experiencing it with AB enabled.
    I'll give it a little longer, just to see what happens.
    I don't think it is AB. Thanks, though.

    You're welcome, it was just a thought. Like FF, there just seems to be little quirks that go along with using Chrome. Hopefully it gets straightened out for you. I imagine they'll be looking into it and fixing whatever might be going on soon.

    This has grown beyond what I would deem a little quirk.
    It's a full-fledged royal PITA.
    But I'll tolerate it for a while, as the alternatives are not to my liking, except possibly FF.

    I'm waiting to see what Opera does with Blink myself.

    I've noticed this too and it's very annoying. I can't remember when it started but it was way before Chrome 26.x

    Looking forward to Opera and Blink too.
    Hoping that we can use the available Google Chrome extensions.
    I really want Xmarks to be able to synchronise my bookmarks.
    And hope for integrated flash and pdf like Google Chrome.

    Thanks for posting.
    Have you reported the issue to Chrome?
    Tools/Report an issue...
    The more the merrier, I say. There must be other Chrome users experiencing this.

    Well, I don't want to veer Page's thread off course, but don't expect major changes like that because of Blink. This Blink business is more about rendering and Google being able to tailor the code to fit the way Chrome handles multi-process than anything else. Using or not using Webkit has no effect on whether things like Flash or PDF reading is built in. Opera would have to do quite a bit more than change rendering engines to do that. It's the API capabilities than affect extensions. If you'll recall, even some of the extensions built for Chrome at first didn't work so well (think AdBlock Plus and the like).

    A bit...
    When people including me have issues with chrome it would be nice to have a real alternative. I hope that that alternative will be Opera one day.

    This newest Chrome also doesn't seem to want to import bookmarks from a file. I just spent 20 minutes visiting an ungodly amount of links and manually adding them..blah.

    And I thought that Chrome's bookmarks system couldn't get any worse... :D
