After the release of the Internet giants first web browser, titled Chrome, Google is hard at work on making their next version of Chrome up to standards with other browsers. The team at Google has taken the feedback received from the first official release, and made changes accordingly.
You can expect to see the following new features:
Something browsers currently have, and a small, yet important feature to implement into Chrome.
The ability to zoom in on text and images using your keyboard shortcuts, making text easier to read. The image zoom will also utilize your keyboard shortcuts like Ctrl – and Ctrl + to zoom in and out.
An easy navigation feature built in that allows the users to scroll up and down, as well as side to side by clicking their scroll wheel.
Keeping your settings separate between users and personalizing your browser, such as homepage, bookmarks, and browsing history. You can also open a new window to switch profiles without exiting.
Greasemonkey Scripts (user-scripts):
Now users can add their own scripts to their browser to help customize their browsing experience
Users can test the latest version of Google Chrome by following these steps:
