Google rolls out Chrome 7


Google on Tuesday released a new stable version of its internet browser, Chrome 7.
The latest update is part of Google's promise in July to release a new stable version of Chrome about every six weeks.


Chrome 7 comes with hundreds of bug fixes, an updated HTML5 parser, the File API, and directory upload via input tag. It is available in the stable and beta channels for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
“The main focus was the hundreds of bug fixes”, Jeff Chang, a Google product manager, wrote in a blog post.
"We've also included a few other things that may be of interest to developers, such as full AppleScript support on Mac OS X for UI automation and implementation of the HTML5 parsing algorithm, the File API, and directory upload," Chang wrote. "Also, if you choose to block sites from setting any data in your browser's content settings for cookies, you can now use a new dialog for managing blocked cookies in bulk."
The latest version will automatically update an installed Google Chrome version.

  12. I use firefox, for two main reasons; Although Chrome is 0.1 seconds faster on average, it was designed that way by google purely so you would pick it instead of firefox so that they could advertise more to you(which brings me to my next point) that Chrome has no addons (e.g.addblocker)

    Think about it?
