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?
