Happy Birthday, Chrome

It seems hard to believe, but it has been two years since Google’s Chrome Web browser was first introduced.  The official Chrome Blog has a “Back to the Future” post commemorating the first release, and musing on how much the “Web world” has changed since then.  There are also some hints about future developments currently in the works.

The post also announces the release of the next major stable release of Chrome, version 6.0.472.53, for all platforms (Linux, Windows, and Mac OS X).  The new release includes speed and stability improvements, user interface improvements, and auto-fill for forms.  There are also a number of security fixes included.  Further details are available in the release announcement on the Chrome Releases blog.

You can get the new version using the built-in update mechanism; or, if you are using Linux, via your normal package update tool.   If you have not yet tried Chrome, you can download it here.
