    Haha, sorry for the inconvenience. I don't want to rush you :-D

    Win 8.1 broke both my sound card and my gamepad driver, so I know the pain^^

    As I said, I cannot test the touch capabilities of Chrome since I do not have a Win 8 device with a touchscreen. I do not know anyone personally who owns one and I do not live anywhere near a store where I could try. Simply ordering one seems to be a bit of overkill just to test and maybe send back.

    Windows 8.1 Pro

    Alright tried the Canary build. Cannot get touch features to work like pinch to zoom. I set Canary as the default browser. didn't help (for IE and Firefox, you need to set the browser as the default to get the Metro version).

    strangely, there is no more "windows 8 mode" (which never really helped anyway with the regular chrome.

    you need to go into the Chrome flags menu and set the pinch to zoom option (just ctrl-F for "pinch") to true.
