I just upgraded to Chromium 12 using daily build ppa. But Chromium is still showing older icon on the gnome panel and appication menu. But it shows new icon if I create shortcut on the desktop and it shows new icon about window of chromium. I tried to remove it completely and re-installed but no use. I even deleted the .cache folder from my home directory.

Tried that, but no difference. – HSS Mar 13 '11 at 17:15
We noticed that in the Chatroom - seems to be something that happened with Google Chrome and Chromium at the same time (Roughly). – James Mar 29 '11 at 15:03
