flat-chrome builds are for debugging, I don't see any need to support them in universal configurations
Comment 2 User image Pu7o 2006-02-28 08:01:06 PST
I find flat chrome builds to be both faster and smaller, so I don't see why it should be "for debugging purposes only", but I guess you know better than me.

According to significant testing, flat chrome takes a lot longer to startup because of disk IO: combining files in a JAR is significantly less overall stat+read IO.
