For everybody’s surprise, Google has released yet another version of its popular Chrome web browser (2011 web browsers). This week has seen the launch of the tenth edition of this program after only a month of the release of Chrome 9. So, it’s very natural to ask ourselves how much has this browser improved since the last version, especially for the fast pace with which the new versions keep showing up. Let’s review the new features to see if Chrome 10 is worth trying.
Additionally, Google claims that Chrome 10 is safer than ever since the sandboxing technology was extended to the built-in flash player. In this way, websites with malicious code in them can’t infect your computer since they’re contained within the confines of the web browser. You can learn more about sandboxing by watching the video below.
Want more? Chrome 10 include several changes on its interface to provide simpler and more adequate access to all of its configurations and settings. Thus, the new searchbox allows you to find the option you’re looking for by typing keywords (such as “homepage” or “bookmarks”). With it, you’ll be saying goodbye to long explorations in the browser’s menus to find the setting you want to adjust.
Finally, another of the improvements you’ll find on the new Google Chrome 10 is the possibility to synchronize browsers across different computers. Do you want the Chrome you use at work to have the same bookmarks, extensions, passwords, themes and preferences as the one you use at home? No problem. This feature lets you do that and protect the whole thing by setting a master password.
The race for becoming the best Internet browser rages on and one of the key players has taken a major step forward to dominate the market. The surprising release of Chrome 10 only a month after the launch of the 9 edition can be justified with the upcoming release of another major browser, Mozilla Firefox 4 (Best Internet Browser). By providing a new version of its popular program, Google has struck first, supporting the old saying that states that attack is the best form of defense. We’ll have to wait and see if this move proves to work for the company but today we can only try Chrome 10 to reach our own conclusions. Tell us what you think!
