Chrome is a popular browser from Google. It is especially gaining popularity because of its speed, simplicity and ease of use. When you open Google Chrome, the graphical user interface is quite simple and minimalistic and only the tools that are absolutely required by the user are displayed.
The other notable features of Google Chrome include safe browsing. Chrome automatically shows warnings on suspicious and malware sites. The Google translate feature is built into Chrome. The browser will automatically offer you to translate a page if it is not in the default language. This feature is a great time saver.
Like the awesome bar in Firefox, Google also has one address bar which can be used for everything. You can directly search Google using the search bar. It also gives search suggestions while typing in the address bar.
Google Chrome also includes a private browsing mode called incognito mode. All the pages opened in incognito mode will not be shown in the browser history.
Latest version: The dev channel for Google Chrome 18 has been updated to 18.0.1025.142. This specific build contains the following changes:
- Updated V8 – 188.8.131.52
- Enable linear scaling for Chrome Remote Desktop’s scale-to-fit feature
- Fixed popup windows issue
- Fixed crashes in extension binding
- When Strict Transport Security mandates that HTTPS certificate errors must be fatal, add a string telling the user why
Note: I will be updating this post when a new version of Google Chrome 18 is released. So stay tuned.
