Click on any of the "for your computer" links on the page.  Nothing happens, and you get this in the web console:

TypeError: document.getElementById(...) is null view.min.js:112

In Chrome, that link seems to prompt to install some kind of Chrome extension.  In Safari, clicking the link takes me to <https://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/browser/?installdataindex=chat&brand=CHYD> which is a Chrome download page.
Hmm, when I click on "for your computer" I get a little modal that tells me I need to download Chrome: https://cldup.com/n0WVAPYEZY-2000x2000.png (even in a clean test profile). Possibly fixed already?
I still get the same error...
OK, strange. :)

Hallvord, can you try to reproduce?
I was able to reproduce this error in Firefox 33.0

Ah, actually I can reproduce now if I go to *google.ca*, not *google.com* (which makes sense Ehsan and Vlad are both in Toronto). Screenshot attached.
