is Google silently updating Flash? I thought every update on Flash requires a new update/version of Chrome yet I think I saw twice or thrice updated new version of Flash without Chrome updating. It's mind boggling.

Yes, Flash is updated in the background.

Webcam problem that I posted (and filed a bug for) in the last release persists. Can you shed any light on what the problem might be?Although the cam works (MS Lifecam) the webcam software for controlling the cam does not start up automatically as it did after granting the cam permission using the Flash dialogue. This is now a fresh install of Chrome Stable with the cam software / driver also re-installed. Tested in IE9 and FF19 and works fine. Site I used to test: http://testwebcam.com/
