Ok... It seems that some people are using what I posted as a direction to change the build.prop to make the Chrome work... Actually, what I put on my earlier post is my exact build.prop what is NOT allowing the Chrome to work... so some one needs to provide an exact line entry. Please do not use my post as this is how my stock (ICSSGS ICS RC4.2) build.prop looks like...

Sorry for the confusion.

I'm not sure if your situation is the same, but upgrading an existing chrome install didn't work for me. It crashed whenever I tried to open it. I uninstalled the one I had then installed the latest one from the play store. Its been working fine since. Running Slim 3.4 btw.

You guys should tell me why I should bother getting Chrome? Isn't stock browser Chrome based with HW accel by Samsung?

I've just tested this problem myself, and if you have LCD density set to 120 that's the cause of the issue. Set it back to 160 in build.prop or using dalingrin's CWM zip, and it works....

BTW Chrome release works. How do you like it? Beta was superbuggy, would not render certain websites, or leave white holes.

What do you mean by "won't work"? It's working on my captivate.
