Chrome Release Speeds Browser, Adds Stable Mac, Linux Versions
Advertisement
#1
Keeping up the breakneck Windows release pace for its upstart Web browser, Chrome, Google unloaded a triple whammy on Tuesday with the release of a new stable version for Windows, as well as stable releases for Mac and Linux.

The news, announced on the Chrome blog, continues Google's breakneck pace of Chrome releases for Windows. This is version 5 of the browser after less than two years of existence. Compare that to Firefox being at version 3.6 after nearly six years.

This release includes a 30 to 35 percent performance boost in JavaScript, Google said. Look for independent tests of those claims on this site in the near future.

On the Mac and Linux side, things have taken a bit longer. Google first announced beta versions of Chrome for Mac and Linux in January 2009. Google's Mac Blog claims that the browser has a native Mac app feel and would benefit from the same speed boost just announced for the Windows version. It also includes Chrome's newest features—extensions and syncing.

Syncing bookmarks between browsers has been available in the Windows version of Chrome since version 4, but version 5 adds the ability to also sync browser preferences. This includes the colorful theme choices, home page, content settings, and page zoom.

Also new in today's release is the ability to specify that Chrome Extensions run in incognito mode, protecting your browsing activities from prying eyes. This will be handled using the enhanced Extensions Manager in Version 5.

The new version also boasts more support for HTML5 standards, which have been making the news lately, thanks to Apple's public scuffles with Adobe over its Flash plug-in. Apple has implied that HTML5 will be able to take over the functions of Flash. Meanwhile, Google is hedging its bet by announcing that an upcoming release will have Flash baked in and by implementing support for more and more HTML5 capabilities.

The new HTML5 support in Chrome version 5 includes features like geolocation APIs, app cache, Web sockets (which allow live communication between sites and the browser), and drag-and-drop. The latter is on display at Gmail, where it lets users drag attachments onto messages they're composing.
