This man is safe, for now…
Windows and Linux only. Thanks to a sharp focus, Google Chrome engineers are able to work just on a few, rather than dozen features at the same time, delivering stable rather than clunky web experience. Now, according to the recent blog post, the latest final build of the Google Chrome 21 web browser improves something [...]
Well, here is something to cheer you up: a new Google Chrome build. As we reported earlier, the following release includes a couple of new features, such as: - Support for the getUserMedia API, which allows web sites to access your mic and camera, high-resolution screens.
Includes some new goodies. Chrome’s developer channel pushed “Packaged Apps” to the v22 builds recently, which allows applications to be launched separately from Chrome (use its own window). Moreover, Packaged Apps have quite a few capabilities as they can interact with network and hardware devices, as well as media apps.
Now here is something for the Google Chrome users. While we wait for the official application by the search giant itself, Atadore Sarl has created Chrync. What is Chrync?

Lastly, a neat Google Cloud Print integration, allowing you to print documents from your Google Drive, Google Chrome Mobile or even FedEx Offices.
And that is all. Nothing too exciting, better luck next time.

Build 20.0.1132.47 Stable.
Following quite a few Google Chrome related reports, the search giant has also announced the availability of the Google Chrome 20 web browser.
As this is Chrome after all, don’t expect a lot of new features. However, starting from the v20 builds, users will notice some minor UI improvements, such as: a wider new tab button and according to some reports, the whole user interface has been redone in HTML, CSS and JS.
And then the usual: “bug fixes and other improvements”. It should be noted that the following release disables some of the GPU acceleration features on Mac hardware that has Intel HD 4000 GPU.

We are not sure when some “higher powers” will finally stepping and prevent this kind of mess but we are eagerly waiting and pointing at you, Europe.
This is how it looks like:
Some notable exceptions include: Incognito mode by default, data sync, unified search/address bar and more.
Adobe told us they were only working on Flash for Windows and Mac PCs and it turns out they were serious. There will be no native Flash for Google's Android 4.1.
Other browsers hide in shame.

- Users type 60 billion words daily

Not bad, not bad at all.

After the recent announcement, guys at the Silicon Valley have released the very first build of the Google Chrome Metro web browser.
As you might guess, it was designed for the upcoming Windows 8 OS, which should shake up the tablet market.
Overall, Google Chrome looks bland, does not follow any Metro design guidelines and borrows its UI from the desktop version rather than the Firefox or IE Metro implementations.
We certainly hope that Google will make its interface more Metro like.
