Google today released a new version, 10.0.648.127, of its Chrome Web browser, for all platforms (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux). It incorporates a number of improvements and new features, including:
- Enabled hardware acceleration for graphics
- Sandboxed Adobe Flash player (built in) on Windows
The new version also fixes 25 identified security vulnerabilities. More details on the changes in the new version are in the Release Announcement on the official Chrome Releases blog. The Chrome Blog also has a discussion of some of the new features.
Because of its security content, I recommend that you update to the new version as soon as you conveniently can. Windows users can obtain the new version via the built-in update mechanism (Help / About Google Chrome). Linux users should be able to get the new version using standard package update tools (e.g., apt-get, synaptic).
