The latest non-dev release has the options to "Relaunch in Windows8 mode" and "Relaunch in desktop mode".
I have to wonder though, how much more bloat can they shove into the browser becomes things become severely broken. After all, pre 23 appeared to work fine in both modes, Starting from the tiles opened in Win8 mode, starting from a desktop shortcut or taskbar shortcut opened in desktop mode.
Was this a change for the sake of change, or are there other benefits to this change that I'm overlooking?
You completely missed Dave's point. He wasn't debating Windows 8. He was asking why they now had two modes that don't seem to offer anything over what was there before. Like Dave, I use Chrome on Windows 8 and it works perfectly, so why have they decided to offer these options which don't seem to make any difference whatsoever?

i said desktop mode offers things metro doesn't offer right now. maybe it's issues with flash, maybe plugins in general or something else they are doing, but with desktop they have more resources than they have on (what it's called now? Modern?)
i'm not sure of what resources they're using, i'm no specialist, and after the update, i think i'm sticking with IE10. it's fast and i've a emotional attachment to IE, never liked when in 7 i was forced into chrome and firefox due to IE speed and flash bugs.
and i had enough of chrome own bugs, i wan't my old friends back, the IE bugs
I'm brazilian and english (well, human languages in general) aren't my best skill, so, sorry by my english. (if you want we can speak in C# or VB.Net =p)
And I was just about to complain that when I ran chrome yesterday after a fresh download/install on win2012 from the desktop with a 27 inch monitor that it went to Metro mode and took over the whole screen.
Edit: Hmm. Maybe that was some momentary glitch as its working now..
