Just over a year after first launching Chrome into the browser scene, Google has announced
a new stable build
in the 3.0 branch. Besides the usual range of bug fixes, Chrome 3.0
includes the promised
support for themes, a more customizable New Tab page, an improved Omnibox (the equivalent to Firefox's Awesome Bar), better HTML5 capabilities, and a higher performing V8 engine.
Google also announced that the Mac version of Chrome -- currently only available for testing -- will be released by the year's end, and that extensions support won't arrive in the stable release of Chrome until version 4.0. If you feel adventurous, though, you could switch to the dev channel
and test this feature out a bit early.
