Improvements in Google Chrome

Posted on: November 14, 2008

Bookmarks Manager

Google has released an update of Chrome browser to those signed up for "developer". The update adds some features to the browser,  most of them already standard in other browsers. First, and most anticipated, is a stand-alone bookmark manager, which offers simple tree-nesting views of your bookmarks, and lets you edit and rename your bookmarks. The "privacy" options have been updated as well, to give users more control over what gets suggested and saved by Chrome, and blocked pop-ups now nest in the lower-right corner, with a number to indicate multiple windows. Windows users using a standard beta installation of Chrome won’t see the update, but you can subscribe to the Dev channel in Chrome to get the 0.4 update.

Chrome for Linux

Not exactly but a test shell is now working on Linux. And test shell is according to Aaron Boodman, who works on Chrome and Gears and spotlighted the Linux accomplishment – "The test shell is a very simple browser that the Chromium development team uses for testing our integration with WebKit," the engine that decodes HTML to render a Web page in the browser. "It is the first step of porting Chromium to a new platform."

But the browser is in a pretty raw state the "enter" key doesn’t work,Web pages don’t render correctly, and the browser doesn’t have a real  UI. V8 the JavaScript engine, however, is still working.

Whatever Chrome may do, I am and I know, even you are going to use only and only Firefox!
