Google Releases Chrome 11

April 27, 2011

Google has released a new major version, 11·0·696·57, of its Chrome Web browser, for all platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Chrome Frame).  The most significant change in this version is the inclusion of speech input via HTML.  The new version also fixes 27 identified security vulnerabilities.  More detail is available in the release announcement on the Chrome Releases blog.   The Google Chrome Blog has an article on the new speech input capability, including an example of its use for language translation.

Because of its security content, I recommend installing this update 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).
