Google has promoted three major Chrome features from the beta channel to the stable build. With the latest version of Chrome, all users can take advantage of WebGL, Chrome Instant and the Chrome Web Store.
WebGL brings hardware-accelerated 3D rendering to Chrome, making for some amazing graphics that could have gaming implications in the future. Right now, you can see it in action in several impressive demos. Chrome Instant will have a bigger immediate impact on users' day-to-day browsing. It loads your frequently-visited pages as you type into the address bar. No enter key required!
For folks who love extensions, themes and Web apps, the Chrome Web Store is the most important new feature. Now that the Web Store is open to all U.S. customers, Google has added a Web Store link and a couple of demo apps to the new tab page in the latest version of Chrome. They've also assured international users that the Web Store will be expanding to other countries soon.
As always, if you run Chrome, it will download the update automatically -- but you'll need to close and re-open it for the update to be applied.
Google has just updated the stable version of their Google Chrome web browser. The release contains both feature additions and security fixes. The security fixes alone make it a recommended update for all Google Chrome stable users.
A total of nine security vulnerabilities have been fixed in Google Chrome 9.0.597.84 of which one received a critical vulnerability rating, the highest possible rating. Two vulnerabilities were rated as high and six as low. Two of the vulnerabilities are only affecting Apple Mac systems, the remaining seven all supported operating systems.
