Re: Is there an archive of older Advanced Chrome builds?

If you need some extension much, I can try to backport it to ES5 (because I know JS quite well).

Re: Material Design porting to Advanced Chrome 54?

Checked this out. Sorry, I don't like it. It's some strange hybrid. Basic Chrome on Windows 7 with new shape is better for me (just needs some good color theme from the Chrome store).

Re: Is there a way to port the old non-material design to newer versions of Chrome?

Very nice job! Hope one day it will really work on XP. Did you already cooperate with Advanced Chrome author about compatibility fixes that he made in order to restore NT 5.1 kernel support in Custom build? Maybe I can also provide some help? :)

Re: I'm curious about something

Heh, I see now. But we really need version 49 because of ES6 support, especially for const/let keywords outside of strict mode. Any ideas how to make a hybrid of 48's incognito screen (and maybe overall UI design) and 49's V8 and Blink engines?
