I've installed Google Chrome 8.0.552.224
The login to my gmail account is successful and the mailbox is displayed for +/-1s but quickly it switch back to the last phase of loading session, i.e., page is at this time blocked in the blank page where only is visible the left upper load status bar (+/-95% load) and the lower right options message ("Loading normal view | Load HTML simple (for lower connections)")

My dsl connection is fast enough.
Possible workaround is to use simple HTML view but not all gmail functionalities are available.

Someone face this problem? How to fix it?
