[rc1] ion-input not working in chrome browser

I am not getting any interaction with the ion-input when using it in Chromium, besides using the TAB key.

At first it appeared to be an issue with the input being contained with in a slide (this), but after removing the slides, the issue has persisted.

  • The app opens with no problem in Mozilla and the input(s) interacts correctly.
  • The app also has the same issue as Chromium while running in Opera.

Is anyone else facing this issue with chromium and ionic rc1? chromium is on the latest build for linux:
