Google No Slouch With Chrome's Beta Status

Compared to Gmail, Chrome’s beta period seems like a blink of an eye. This morning Google’s Chrome browser obtained stable status on Windows, Mac and Linux, ending it’s beta run.

Chrome has matured incredibly quickly, with Google pounding away at Firefox’s capability and share of the market.

Speed has increased with each release, with rendering up 213%, and Javascript by 305%. Some other new features include more HTML5 capabilities, most notably geolocation, and synchronizing browser settings across computers.

Google was hoping to include Adobe’s Flash Player built in to the stable version of Chrome, but now says it will be included once the full release of Flash Player 10.1 is announced.
