Google Chrome 2.0 (Download)
« on: 23. May 2009., 15:36:07 »


Google's Chrome browser has been out for a little while now, and is already pretty popular with users. Development for it is ever pushing forward, and Google has just released version 2.0 of the browser, on Windows. It's actually not a huge release, but does come with some very welcome additions.

So, what can you expect in Chrome 2.0? You can find the improvements from the official Google Chrome blog below:

    Improved New Tab Page:
    The most requested feature from users was the ability to remove thumbnails from the New Tab page. Now you can finally hide that embarrassing gossip blog from the Most Visited section.

    Full Screen Mode:
    If you've ever given a presentation or watched a large video using Google Chrome, you might have wished you could use every last pixel on your screen for the content. Now you can hide the title bar and the rest of the browser window by hitting F11 or selecting the option in the Tools menu.

    Form Autofill:
    Filling out your information in forms over and over again can be tedious. Form autofill helps by showing information you've previously entered into the same form fields automatically. If at any point you want to clear out your information, that's easy to do from the Tools menu.

    Increased Stability:
    Google Chrome is more stable than ever -- we have fixed over 300 bugs that caused crashes since launch.

    Increased Speed:

    Making the web faster continues to be our main area of focus. Thanks to a new version of WebKit and an update to our javascript engine, V8, interactive web pages will run even faster. We've also made sure that javascript keeps running fast even when you have lots of tabs open. Try opening a bunch of web applications and then running your favorite benchmark. You can read more about V8 in our javascript scalability post on the Chromium blog.


It's good news to see that the browser is now about 30% faster, as it was already pretty speedy as it is. If you wish to watch Google's YouTube video of the release, we've included it below. If you're a current Chrome user, the update should be automatically available very soon (if it isn't already), but otherwise please visit the official website for the software to obtain it: http://www.google.com/chrome/index.html?brand=CHNQ&utm_campaign=en&utm_source=en-et-chromeblog&utm_medium=et

I hope this version plays better with proxy servers.  Ver1 was highly allergic to my proxy server at work.   :(
