Google shines up Chrome again.
Google's Chrome browser has the ability to keep itself updated, so if you're a regular user (who also restarts the browser regularly), then you should be updated – even if you weren't aware of it.
In either case, you may be pleased to know that Google has officially released the stable version of Chrome 14.
Google says that this release contains two significant technologies which allow developers to create even more powerful web apps and games:
- The Web Audio API enables developers to add fancy audio effects such as room simulation and spatialization.
- Native Client is an open-source technology which allows C and C++ code to be seamlessly and securely executed inside the browser. Currently, Native Client only supports applications listed in the Chrome Web Store, but we are working to remove this limitation as soon as possible.
Mac users running Chrome will also appreciate some of the Mac OS X Lion-specific additions, such as overlay scrollbars, which appear only while you’re scrolling and natively supported full-screen mode.
