Default Google launches Chrome 11, flat icon is here to stay

Quote:


Firefox 4? Too furry. Internet Explorer 9? Too blue. Google's Chrome? Just the right amount of shine -- or is it? The company introduced a flat new logo for the browser and now that logo is gracing the software's latest stable release. Chrome 11 is now available, the biggest changes being a number of security and bug fixes, some of which "may be kept private until a majority of our users are up to date with the fix." The new version also delivers speech-to-text and, perhaps more importantly, text-to-speech. There are other enhancements too, but really you've probably already left us to update. Are you still there? Hello?

Hmm, does Google still steal your information? Does Chrome have an awesome adblock add-on like Firefox yet?

I use Adblock Plus on Chrome for awhile now. Where have you been?

I haven't used Chrome since its first iteration when people found out Google's dirty little secret. So basically, under a rock. FF as much as I love it has been ****ing me off lately. Only thing holding me to FF is adblock.

Very much agreed. Soon I'll be migrating over to Chrome.

I made that change several months ago. Can't remember when.

I actually use both. Chrome for my everyday use. FF to post my news on here.

I think I'll go over and see if there is an update to Iron.

Edit: Yup sure is.
Difference!

Updated. Hopefully this'll solve my Youtube issues. Didn't matter whether I used standard or HTML5 playback, it always jittered.
