Default Google releases stable build of Chrome 10 browser

Quote:
In mid-February, Google released the first public beta of Chrome 10, which showed off the browser's updated V8 JavaScript engine known as "Crankshaft," it revised the settings interface, and a handful of other features. Tuesday, Google released the first stable version of Chrome 10.

"With today's stable release, even your most complex web apps will run more quickly and responsively in the browser. (For the curious, this boost corresponds to a 66% improvement in JavaScript performance on the V8 benchmark suite,)" Google software engineer Tim Steele said today.

In addition to the changes mentioned above, Chrome 10 also puts Adobe Flash in the sandbox on Windows machines, includes encrypted password sync in Chrome Sync by default, supports hardware acceleration for HTML 5 video (while removing support for the H.264 codec), as well as for background WebApps, webNavigation extension API, and improved malware reporting and some $16,000 worth of bug fixes in Google's Vulnerability Rewards Program.

Current Chrome users on both Windows and Mac OS can automatically update to the new version in the "wrench menu." Otherwise, it can be downloaded here.

Chrome 10 is even faster than 9, with its new Crankshaft Javascript engine. Also, I love the new ability to sync passwords. Very helpful.
