Chrome 48.0.2564.10

Google Chrome is an open source web browser developed by Google (named after the user interface frame of web browsers). Its software architecture was engineered from scratch (using components from other open source software including WebKit and Mozilla) to cater to the changing needs of users and acknowledging that today most web sites aren`t web pages but web applications. Design goals include stability, speed, security and a clean, simple and efficient user interface.

Features Include:

*Tabbed browsing where each tab gets its own process, leading to faster and more stable browsing. If one tab crashes, the whole browser doesn’t go down with it
*A distinct user interface that places tabs on top of the browser window instead of right below the address bar
*An “incognito” mode that lets you browse the web in complete privacy because it doesn’t record any of your activity
*A new JavaScript engine built from the ground up for speed
*Malware and phishing lists that automatically update themselves and warn you of bad websites
*A default homepage that displays your most commonly used sites and other personalized information

        v4.0.237.0 [11-08-09]

        The Dev channel has been updated to 4.0.237.0 for all platforms (Windows, Mac, and Linux). The focus on this release has been feature polish, stability improvement, and extensions work.
        Mac

        • Significant bookmark bar improvements.
        Linux
        • [r29163, r29299] Audio playing improvements in video/audio tags. (Issues: 23974, 20945, 17703)
        • [r29261] Fix international keyboard handling (alt-gr, ctrl+f). (Issues: 10846, 2215, 21471)
        • [r29657] ~ now works in the Omnibox to expand to home directories. (Issue: 18200)
        • [r29857] Fix conflicts between accelerator keys and HTML DOM accesskeys. (Issue: 21624)
        • [r29903] Inactive pinned tabs on linux throb when the title changes. (Issue: 25308)
        • Text drawn over rounded corners (including buttons) is no longer blurry. This affected a variety of sites, including Google Calendar and Google Reader.
        • As an experiment, we've changed the way clicking in the omnibox works. Leave a comment on the bug if it bothers you.

        Extensions
        • Lots of work to polish and stabilize the browser and page action APIs:
          • [r29556] Add badge text color API. Also change color APIs from ARGB to RGBA (breaking change, sorry!) (Issues: 24635, 24644, 25215)
          • [r29152, r29785] Browser actions (buttons, popups) are now implemented. (Issue: 23882, 23897)
          • [r29997] Add support for tab-specific state to browser actions. Also, fix the bug where only the first call to setIcon() works. (Issues: 24669,24472)
          • [r30346] Constrain browser action popups to a min/max size. Also fix some glitches in popup sizing. (Issue 25214)
          • [r30499] Use a better signature for the new page actions API (chrome.pageAction.* instead of chrome.pageActions.*). This is technically a breaking change, but hopefully not too many people had gotten around to using the new API yet. (Issue 25833)
        • [r29665] Remove toolstrips on linux. They were causing lots of crashes and are going away soon anyway. (Issue 25106)
        • [r29911] Add chrome.extension.sendRequest() -- a simpler way to do content script messaging. (Issue 23865)
        • [r30341] Add new event chrome.tabs.onStatusChange. This makes the common case of wanting to know when tabs load much easier. (Issue 21729)
        • Other miscellaneous cleanup:
          • [r29498] Correctly handle reloading in the task manager (Issue 18693)
          • [r29555] Fix bug where content scripts did not always apply to first page load (Issue 11547)
          • [r29714, r29922, r29935, r30219] Various cleanup for the extension management page (Issues 12119, 25509, 25471)
          • [r30091] Improve install UI on mac (Issue 19654)
          • [r30312] Filter out hidden files when loading and packing extensions (Issue 23004)
          • [r30326] Copy chrome.extension.getTabContentses() to chrome.extension.getExtensionTabs(). Nobody liked the old name. (Issue 21433)
          • [r30384] Use the puzzle piece as the default extension icon. (Issue 25906)
          • [r30481] Hide the theme install bubble a little earlier. It was overlapping with the install dialog on linux. (Issue 26130)

        Known Issues:
        • [r26861] - Autocomplete/ select box values are not being correctly populated in Linux. As a work around you can use the up/down arrow keys to view the current selection.
        • [r26600] - Task bar icon in Windows does not update/ display correctly.

        More details about additional changes are available in the svn log of all revisions.
