Google Chrome doesn't like Google Docs

It wasn't hard to see that Chrome doesn't like Google Docs. When I tried to highlight an entire spreadsheet row, the last column was missed. When I tried to copy and paste a row, the results were odd.

Then I pasted into a cell, selected text, and cleared formatting ...

Well, we knew it's early beta.

Still, I didn't expect it to blow up so quickly in Google's own backyard. This ain't subtle, the Chrome team must have know about the problem.

I've seen similar results, maybe a bit better, when I've used Safari on Google Apps. Safari and Chrome both use WebKit, in contrast Gecko browser (Camino, Firefox) work pretty well.

My guess is that there's some bad code in the Google Apps - spreadsheet and probably doc. So maybe the next step is to cleanup Google Apps -- which will help Safari.

At least this bug ain't hard to find!
