Google Chrome finally released the stable version for Linux and Mac. I have been using Chromium (an open source Google Chrome) on my Ubuntu machine. It’s quite good and there was no Google Chrome release for Linux. Google Chrome released this stable version for both Linux and Mac by 25 May 2010, you can see their announcement on their blog post.
Instead release the stable version for both Linux and Mac, Google also update Chrome version for Windows. This new version not only provide stability, performance and user experience for both Linux and Mac user, but also bring many new features and security patches.
Many new features comes with this stable version. Before you synchronize your bookmarks across multiple computers, and now you are able to synchronize browser preferences including themes, homepage and startup settings, web content settings, preferred languages, and even page zoom settings.
This stable release also incorporates HTML5 features such as Geolocation APIs, App Cache, web sockets, and file drag-and-drop. For a taste of HTML5’s powerful features, try browsing through websites developed in HTML5 such as scribd.com, dragging and dropping attachments in Gmail, or by enabling the geolocation functionality in Google Maps. We’ve also given Chrome’s bookmark manager a facelift with HTML5.
