The big news this week from the Mountain View-based search engine giant Google is that version 3.0 of its take on how a web browser should look and feel has moved on to the stable channel. Yes, Chrome 3.0 can now be downloaded and installed on your system as a final, stable piece of software. Previously Chrome 3.0 was only available on Google’s dev channel, but this week in graduated to Beta and then to Final.

Precisely a week ago the development team behind Chrome announced the release of Chrome on the Windows Beta channel. The release came with “better international support,” several “stability/bug fixes for the New Tab page” as well as themes support. Then this week they announced the release of the update on the Beta channel.


At the start of this week, the Windows Google Chrome 3.0 version graduated from Beta to Final. The stable Chrome channel now serves Chrome, while the dev channel serves Chrome 4.0.

Here is what you can expect to get from Chrome for Windows:
- Themes support
- HTML5 capabilities
- A new New Tab page.
- The Omnibox has been updated
- Audio and video tags support
- An improved V8 engine
- Enhanced security.

“Thanks to a full year of great feedback from our users, we're kicking off our second year of Google Chrome with a brand new stable release. If you haven't tried Google Chrome recently, we invite you to give it a whirl. Many of the improvements in this release were inspired by the responses from users, so we're all ears if you have any feedback. If you're already using Google Chrome, you'll be automatically updated to this new version soon, but if you're itching to try this right away, download the latest version,” commented Program Manager, Anthony Laforge.
