Chrome 11 Available on the Beta and Stable Channel

Google, and I’m saying this to make sure everyone is on board, uses three channels to roll out Chrome versions to the public – the dev channel, the Beta channel and the stable channel. It was in March that Google rolled out Chrome 10 to the stable channel and touted the fact that Chrome 10 came with a faster JavaScript engine, the ability to run apps in the background, a fresh look and feel for the settings dialogs, password sync, and enhanced security.

Chrome 10 is no longer the latest version on the stable channel or on the Beta channel for that matter. Google has recently rolled out Chrome 11 on the Beta and the stable channel. On the dev channel Google is now serving Chrome 12 for Windows, Mac and Linux.

Chrome 11 comes with fixes for a grand total of 25 vulnerabilities (many are serious) and with a new voice feature that lets you speak out instead of typing into Google Translate. Or to put it in other words, if you want to translate something in Google Translate, with Chrome 11 you can speak out what you want to translate.

Please note that this feature provides support for English only – for the time being. You can speak out something in English and Google Translate will translate it into another language, say French for example. It doesn’t work the other way around; you cannot speak out something in French and have Google Translate translate it into English.

To try out this new feature, go to the Google Translate page and click the microphone icon from the lower right hand of the screen. After translating something to French for example, you can click the “Listen” button and hear how the translation sounds like.



If you would like to get Chrome 11 stable, you can download it straight from Google here.
