Guidelines

  1. Please make sure that you are on the dev channel. We have recently refreshed the dev channel, so you will have to sign up for the dev channel once again. Instructions for joining the dev channel are here: http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel/.
  2. Make sure you are running the latest version. You can find information about Google Chrome versions here: http://dev.chromium.org/getting-involved/dev-channel/release-notes.
  3. IMPORTANT: Before you begin testing, please set up a new profile. We strongly suggest that you use a separate profile folder for testing purposes so that the testing does not tamper with your existing profile and also to ensure all the volunteers are starting with a similar setup.
    1. You can clear the profile between tests, as described in the profile page.
    2. When you are done testing, you can edit the shortcut again to go back to your original profile.
  4. Please go through as many test cases as possible. Detailed description about the test cases is provided in the column on the left. Each test case should be answered with a 'Pass' or 'Fail'
  5. Please try and associate a failing test case with a bug. It could be an existing bug or a new issue. Please refer to bug reporting guidelines here: http://dev.chromium.org/for-testers/bug-reporting-guidelines. Use the 'Other' response field in the test cases to include the bug numbers.
  6. Please do not use this form to send us feature requests or information about unrelated crashes or bugs. Please file them directly on http://crbug.com where they will be looked at along with other bugs.
