I have just discovered a bug in Google Chrome. I don’t know if I’m the first one to discover it or write about it but who cares. I think the Google Chrome developers should know about this, if they still haven’t heard of it. Since Google Chrome is still in beta, this bug is just the first of many — or few.
So what’s the Chrome bug? It’s actually a PNG opacity issue. I discovered this bug when I came across taptaptap, a website for iPhone apps, using the Google Chrome browser. Below are screenshots of the taptaptap website on Google Chrome and Firefox, respectively.
To see the actual bug, simply open taptaptap.com in Google Chrome and click one of those soft rounded square icons. You should be able to see white borders appear on inactive square icons.
Like I said, Google Chrome is still in beta, so it’s just normal to encounter a few bugs. Another demonstration of a CSS bug on Google Chrome is seen when you visit Avalonstar.
It appears that they’ve exchanged text-shadow for text-shitify.
But I must admit, I fell in love with Chrome the first time I saw it. It never fails to give me fast, reliable and organized browsing experience. Google Chrome is fast, just check out the benchmarks here, there and everywhere.
Update: Google Chrome 2 has been released and it fixes the PNG Opacity bug. Thanks to the Google Chrome developers for looking into this one major problem.
