Everything new and tech gets reviewed here

Google’s Chrome is out of beta. What’s the hurry?

google_chromeToday, Google announced that their Chrome leaves beta. This was really fast – about three month to make browser stable and fast enough to take off  ‘beta’ label. It is a little strange for me to see Chrome 1.0 because major release must introduce new features, and Chrome 1.0 doesn’t. Yes, Chrome is rather fast and stable, but it still doesn’t have such important features as add-ons and built-in RSS reader, although everyone expected them to be in a non-beta version. So, what’s the hurry? It’s easy to understand – beta version can’t be preinstalled on a new computers. So, now we can expect that Google will try to conclude contracts with OEM (original equipment manufacturers). Maybe, your next computer will be with preinstalled Chrome :).

In spite of all unfinished tasks, let’s congratulate Chrome developers with the 1.0 version and wish them to make Chrome even better. Chrome 1.0 can be downloaded from here.

  1. Chrome was published so quick out of greed. It’s on parr with Safari, that’s if Safari isn’t slightly faster – tho’ we are talking nano-seconds here.
    Personally, I still use FireFox 3.0.5 (beta), It was just released a few days ago. I should state this is for the Mac / OS X, Not Windows.

    If you think Chrome 1.0 is published fast, wait and see how fast Google publish Google OS! *sigh* nothing is tested properly these days.

  2. So what it is released fast Google can do anything ( they said so ) as mentioned, add-ons and built-in RSS reader are pretty much what I depend on in Mozilla so bad move for it not to be ready out of the box.
