Hey internet users a good news for u all Google’s Chrome 5 Web browser is now available.Isn’t it a great news??
The first stable release for Mac and Linux users comes after nearly a year of development in the dev and beta channels of Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) Chrome. The first versions of Chrome for Linux and Mac debuted in June 2009 and had only limited functionality. In contrast, Google has been offering Windows builds ever since the beginning of the Chrome effort in September 2008.
You’ve been biding your time, enduring the evils of Firefox, Safari, Opera and perhaps even Internet Explorer (dare we speak its name), slowly summoning your courage to give Google’s alternative a try. Well, kiddo, we’ve got good news and bad. The good news is that if your box lovingly depicts fruit or a well-dressed penguin, you’ll no longer get short shrift: Chrome 5 is out of beta and stable across Mac and Linux for the first time, with browser sync and a host of new HTML5 functionality to boot.
As part of the Chrome 5 stable update, Google is also fixing at least six security vulnerabilities in Chrome, two which were the company had labeled as highly critical.
The bad news is that Chrome has some quirks of its own… but hey, let’s not spoil the experience — no matter what platform you try it on, the WebKit browser is definitely speedy. Those flyin’ french fries aren’t just for show.
