I am using Google chrome version 21.0.1180.89 (on Ubuntu 12.04) and when I clear the browsing data it fails to clear the thumbnails (the most visited ones that show up on a new tab page).

I deleted "Top Sites" and "Top Sites-journal" (under ~/.config/google-chrome/Default path) but this did not clear out the thumbnails.

I am not even sure whether chrome actually counts the visit number on pages correctly or not anymore.

This is a known bug in the current version of Chrome.
