Google Chrome 30 is Out, Download Now

The web browser is arguably the most important piece of software on your computer. You spend much of your time online inside a browser: when you search, chat, email, shop, bank, read the news, and watch videos online, you often do all this using a browser.

Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. Use one box for everything--type in the address bar and get suggestions for both search and Web pages. Thumbnails of your top sites let you access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from any new tab. Desktop shortcuts allow you to launch your favorite Web apps straight from your desktop. Google Chrome also uses a brand new javascript engine (V8), which is much faster than existing javascript interpreters. This means you can create more complex and more intensive AJAX applications with fewer speed and processing constraints. Finally, Google Chrome is built on top of WebKit, so Google Chrome users will benefit from the CSS3 features being added to WebKit as those features are released.

Chrome has many useful features built in, including automatic full-page translation and access to thousands of apps, extensions, and themes from the Chrome Web Store.

Google Chrome is one of the best solutions for Internet browsing giving you high level of security, speed and great features.

Chrome 30.0.1599.66 contains a number of improvements and over 50 security fixes including:

  • Easier searching by image
  • A number of new apps/extension APIs
  • Lots of under the hood changes for stability and performance

You can read more about these changes at the Google Chrome Blog.

I love how they hijacked the new tab interface. That and embracing Microsoft's more clicks is better to the search engine. I want Gmail and Drive and not Gmail and Images. If they would allow me to customize it then the new interface would be great.

Heh, funny thing is you'll probably get the customisation via a completely odd route - Opera. Given they share engines and Opera's got it's own custom UI layer which they're slowly expanding to differentiate from Chrome. It's not there now but the devs are pitching it that way. Give it a couple of months though.

Copy paste this in your omnibox (without quote) "chrome://flags/#enable-instant-extended-api"
and disable it. It will revert back NTP for you to old home sweet home.
