Bug using quote button in Google Chrome on Windows

123> 123123

Is what I get when I type 123, highlight it, and click the blockquote button.

I bet you're using a beta browser, aren't you? We don't support beta browsers.. – Jeff Atwood Aug 13 '10 at 9:20
Totally forgot I signed up for beta builds or else I'd have checked first. This is the very first problem I've had with them. Props to Google I suppose. – colithium Aug 16 '10 at 5:44

I had this same problem yesterday (with blockquotes, bullet points, etc.) while using Chrome 6, which is in beta. As Jeff stated above, beta browsers aren't officially supported.

Other than that, it works in Chrome 5!
