Chrome, Google's entry into the browser market, has a new beta version today that shows off two new features - instant language translation and privacy settings.

The browser was the only browser to make gains in February and we're thinking additions like these will only help to propel it's popularity.

According to the blog post, "when the language of the webpage you're viewing is different from your preferred language setting, Chrome will display a prompt asking if you'd like the page to be translated for you using Google Translate."

Google has, of course, been hard at work in the translation business. In early February, we wrote about how the company has been developing software to conduct real-time translation over mobile phones.

Chrome will use Google Translate, which currently translates between 52 languages, to automatically translate websites.

In addition to translation, the browser known for being lite on pretty much everything will get a little more cumbersome as it gets some privacy settings, though we don't think this will be the sort of thing to bog it down at all. Rather, we're glad to see Google looking after the user's privacy concerns. The new settings will allow you to "control how browser cookies, images, JavaScript, plug-ins, and pop-ups are handled on a site-by-site basis."

The features will be part of the automatic update in the near future, but for those who don't like to wait, you can download the beta version here.
