Just got some good news from Google’s Blog. Google Chrome 10 is now available! Just three weeks ago, a speedy Chrome beta was released and today, these speed improvements are available in the new version. With today’s stable release, your most complex web apps will run more quickly and responsively in the browser.
Chrome’s new settings interface will help you get to the right settings quickly so you don’t have to dig endlessly to find a way to import your bookmarks or change your browser’s homepage. A search box is added that shows you the settings you are looking for, as you type.
On top of that, you can also copy and paste a direct link into Chrome’s address bar to jump to a specific settings page. No more long, frustrating phone conversations with your dad on where to find that specific setting in the browser! Check out this video for a demo.
For those of you who save your passwords in the browser, you can now quickly log on to the websites you frequent even when you switch computers, by simply synchronizing those passwords across your computers. You can also encrypt those passwords with your own secret passphrase for extra security.
To enable sync on each of your computers, visit the “Personal Stuff” section in Chrome’s settings (or just type “sync” in the settings search box). You can also choose to sync bookmarks, extensions, preferences, themes and more.
You will be even safer as you speed around the web, as the sandboxing technology was extended to the integrated Flash Player in Chrome. So if you are using Windows Vista or newer versions, you will benefit from the additional layer of protection against malicious webpages.
