Google Chrome is finally Out of beta

For years, Google’s Gmail has been in beta. And It has been just three months that Google made it official that Chrome is out of beta. But I want to ask a simple question….Where is Mac and Linux Version? And the answer is next year, may be in the first half of the year, but no assured date. Despite the word about the upcoming release of a Windows version, there's still no word on when a version of Google Chrome will be available for Mac or Linux.As for the Windows version, the reviews have mostly been favorable for chrome. As the Browser is good at speed and as Google claims that the speed is 1.4 faster than it was released 3 months ago. Users were complaining about the plug-ins and the performance of Google Chrome, And Google has fixed many of them.

A nice bonus feature is one that bundles all of the options that might impact a user’s privacy in one common place. Basically, if there’s a feature in Chrome that involves accessing or storing information that might identify you or something about you, it will be grouped with all of the other features that might have privacy implications so that users can find them easily and adjust the settings to their comfort levels.  In a blog post, the company said:

“We’ve taken security very seriously from the beginning and we will continue to look for ways to make Google Chrome and all browsers even more secure. Google Chrome’s unique sandbox technology creates an additional layer of defense against harmful software, while the Safe Browsing feature provides protection against phishing and malware attacks for many browser users.”

Just because the beta label has been removed doesn’t mean the updates are finished. The team says that work continues on other features and enhancements such as form autofill and RSS feeds, which are in the works. From here on out, the updates will pretty much come as they’re ready. Unlike Microsoft, which usually makes its upgrades and changes in a broad-swoop version update, Google tends to simply make the update whenever it’s ready to go live.
