Google has long touted the speed of Chrome, most recently tying the Year of the Rabbit in to its announcement of a Chrome beta. Today, the stable version of the browser is being released.
But speed isn’t just the “pure brawn” under the hood, says Google, and the new interface in this most recent version of Chrome is meant to help the user move more quickly as well, particularly when it comes to changing settings. The settings interface now takes up its own tab in the browser, and there’s a new search box so you can quickly find what you’re looking to manage.
The new Chrome also lets you synchronize your passwords across the various computers you use. You can encrypt these for additional security. To enable this feature, visit the “Personal Stuff” section in Chrome’s settings.
Google has also extended Chrome’s sandboxing to the browser’s integrated Flash Player, which will help protect you against malicious webpages.
You can download the latest version here, or if you’re already using Chrome, you’ll be automatically updated soon.
