Chrome 56 is giving me SSL errors on some sites like
https://dnsquery.org/

The error I get is:

This site can’t provide a secure connection

dnsquery.org sent an invalid response.
ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR


Google must have changed something in version 56!

I've gone back to version 55 which works on the above site
without errors!

PostPosted: Sat 25 Feb 2017, 15:02    Post subject: Youtube / HTML high cpu usage  

YouTube html5 720p video playback in 56.0.2924.87 started having issues in the last 7 days or so for me. Very high CPU Usage, resulting in choppy playback. OS is FatDog64 710. Have been using Chrome for many months and not observed this issue before. Infact, being able to watch 720p60 video was the primary reason I started using Chrome.

Change to flash video playback and there are no problems.

Disabling HW Acceleration doesn't help. Perhaps it's a video driver issue on my setup - only posting to see if anyone knows more.

Morning, Jake.

Wouldn't like to say what's going on here, TBH. Not only Google, but YouTube, seem to have been engaged in a spell of 'chase the monkey' for the last few weeks; changing stuff virtually at random, seemingly on a whim.....and changing back as often as there are days in the week (often breaking other stuff between changes back & forth).

Of course, YouTube is under Google's jurisdiction, so you would think they'd have at least that one working correctly. Currently I'm 'beta-testing' 57.0.2987.74. As of this moment, YouTube seems to be behaving itself perfectly; mind you, I can't test 720p, since I've only got an elderly 1024 x 768 monitor.....it would be rather pointless!

PostPosted: Mon 06 Mar 2017, 08:42    Post subject: Youtube / HTML high cpu usage  

Just a follow-up post regarding the problem I was having with YouTube HD videos.

After doing a clean install of Fatdog64 710, the issue is pretty much gone. I still get the occasional stutter when changing from full-screen to windowed with YouTube 720p60 video - but playback is otherwise much smoother. That may have always been the case and probably the best I can expect from my core2duo.

CPU usage has gone down from consistently 95%+ to as low as 70%. I'm almost certain now the issue was due to GPU Drivers, which I have not messed with this time around.

In conclusion, Google / YouTube are not to blame; rather my own misadventures in driver compiling.

***NEW VERSION***

Afternoon, all.

The current version, 57.0.2987.98, released yesterday, is now available for download from the usual location.

https://www.mediafire.com/folder/l8lkuo39z6gq8/Chrome_SFS_packages

Details of 'fixes' available here, for those interested in such things:-

https://chromereleases.googleblog.com/

---------------------------------------------------------------------

This ought to run OK, without any problems.....as usual, I've been 'beta-testing' for a while. 2 or 3 major changes to report:-

1 ) The biggest is WebAssembly support, which is a new standard for 'packing' & delivering web pages.

2 ) CSS Grid Layout; this is a new feature for web developers, enabling a new method for layout of items on web pages, which doesn't require 100's of lines of CSS code for every change, and allows much smoother page resizing. And finally,

3 ) Media Session API. This is primarily for Android, and allows developers to push rich media content to notifications.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

The major security 'fix' is related to the total deprecation of SHA-1 certificates; these are now distrusted by default.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

Details for the first-time enabling of the new PepperFlash update system can be found here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=928393#928393

After this, the new 'fingerprinted' PepperFlash will download automatically to ~/.config/google-chrome/PepperFlash, and will also be deployed automatically, without you needing to do anything.

Any probs, you know where I am.


Mike. Wink

Version 57 seems to be working OK here. It's now my backup browser!
I like Slimjet better and use it most of the time.

Thanks for your efforts!

Hi, orrin.

You're very welcome, mate.....and I'm pleased to hear about 'Slimmie', by the way. I tend to use it quite a lot myself.....but I still keep up with Chrome, simply 'cos I've been using it for so long.

I'll be doing a new 64-bit release of SlimJet pretty soon. I don't do every release, 'cos FlashPeak pop out another one every few days, seemingly; I'd never be away from it if I gave in to it!

Afternoon, all.

Just as an aside, I can reveal that version 58, when it makes its appearance, will in all likelihood be missing highlighting in the bookmark listings. This is currently the case with the 'beta' of 58, which I'm testing ATM. It'll probably carry over to the 'stable' 58, when it's released.

This means that ya gotta make sure sure that the tip of your cursor is right on top of the bookmark you want to use.....because there's no indication now. I suspect this is line with their new 'Modern UI' as they call it (part of which was the change from the 'hamburger' Menu symbol to the the current 'three dots'.)

The other cosmetic change seems to be with the 'tooltips', which instead of black text on a white field, are now inverted; white text on a black field instead. Slightly uglier, IMHO. Rolling Eyes

It is, of course, also in line with integrating everything in with Chrome OS and Android later on this year.....something else to watch out for!

Memory usage, is improving all the time. An important plus point, considering Chrome used to be a serious RAM hog!

***NEW VERSION***

Evening, all.

The current version, 58.0.3029.81, released yesterday, is now available for download from the usual location.

https://www.mediafire.com/folder/l8lkuo39z6gq8/Chrome_SFS_packages

Details of 'fixes' available here, for those interested in such things:-

https://chromereleases.googleblog.com/

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Details for the first-time enabling of the new PepperFlash update system can be found here:-

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=928393#928393

After this, the new 'fingerprinted' PepperFlash will download automatically to ~/.config/google-chrome/PepperFlash, and will also be deployed automatically, without you needing to do anything. If you're upgrading from the previous version, and haven't touched /root/.cache and/or /root/.config, then Pepper will continue to upgrade without you needing to touch anything at all.

As fully expected, the new design 'cues' have, indeed, carried over to the new stable release.....

Enjoy, as always.


Mike. Wink

Hello Mike,

Got version 58 and so far no problems. It seems a bit more
sluggish with video as compared to Slimjet on my slow DSL connection.

Hi, ethplorer.

What on earth possessed you to consider those old versions? Some of them are 5 years old or more.....

The only reason they were in 'My Packages' at all was because I was experimenting with old versions in a couple of truly ancient lappies, and it was easier to transfer using the cloud, since they were several miles apart at the time!

(The 'sneakernet' has it's limitations, y'know.....? Laughing )

When you say you're using Slacko, which version? There's plenty of 'em to choose from. 32-bit or 64? 6-series, or one of the older 5-series?

Personally, I run Slackos 5.6 & 5.7, X-Slacko 2.3.2, and Slacko64 6.3.0 (the version prior to orrin's.)

Need to know which one, please. Then I can make my advice a wee bit more 'informed...'


Mike. Wink
