Google has released Chrome 24, made it even faster

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's Chrome browser has won the hearts of many but also faces stiff competition from Firefox and Internet Explorer. Even so, Google has managed to build the Chrome brand and has millions of consumers using the browser each day.

Google has announced that Chrome 24 is now available for download and it brings several enhancements but all of them are under the hood improvements. The most notable improvements come in the form of Flash updates, support for MathML and of course, a bunch of general bug fixes. 

If you don't have Chrome yet, you can download it from the link below. If the browser is already installed on your machine, it will be updated automatically in the near future if it has not occurred already.

I'd love to use the latest version, however I'm still using Chrome v17, simply because it's the final version that support gdipp font smoothing.

Still uncustomizable ui, faster but more memory hog, sure people here have more than 4Gb of ram.

Prefer firefox which its not faster but more customizable and balance resource use.

I have no need for Chrome (or Google in general for that matter). Just like I have no need for Opera. The competition is good for the browser market though.

memory usage is going up and up with every release too.

I've noticed that too... One of the reasons I still prefer Firefox.

wait so we have a post just to say it has under the hood updates which you'll never notice....wow, awesome thanks. now I know why NOTHING CHANGED.

Innovation has been stagnant lately... LOL

Built in MathML support is nice. Probably won't come across this unless your a student taking online math courses.

Guilty

No doubt Chrome is good but my main browser and choice is Firefox, although if Chrome release 64-bit earlier then I might switch otherwise till Firefox is without Australis theme, it will be my primary choice.

Yeah! But we are waiting and they are progressing quite faster than expected by me in development, so hopefully in Q3 till we might have Chrome 64-bit on Windows, its just my estimation.

Wouldnt it help with memory resources? I have like 10 tabs open and I lose 1gb of ram, sometimes more depending on the tabs [content]. When I have only 2800 avail (before the 10 tabs) it drops me to 1500 sometimes which I then cannot play any games with it open (chrome). In TM it shows like 11 .exe's of it when I have only 8 tabs open too...still some bad memory allocation chrome has IDK why.... (also I have 4gb of ram but Win7 takes about a GB +/- )

Hehe Chrome 64-bit is already on Linux ;D Glad my main OS is my Linux installation and Windows is just for games.

Well that is nice, I should be glad I use Windows and have been a 64bit version of IE for nearly 10 years. (Which is by default on Win8 x64.)

That is actually to increase stability. The UI, every tab and every plugin run in a separate process. This means that if one tab or plugin crashes it doesn't affect anything else. Going x64 won't help decrease the memory use.

Same here, enjoying 64Bit Chromium on Ubuntu 12.10 x64 as my main OS.
Just converted from Opera to Chromium.It is my almost Only browser now.
Strangely enough, with about 7 tabs in chromium, I use around 1GB for the whole system+chromium.
I am loving this
