Google Chrome 4.0 enables extensions

Posted on Tuesday, January 26 2010 @ 16:59 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Google released version 4 of its Chrome browser. The new edition promises a performance boost of 42 percent and has a gallery with over 1,500 extensions. Other new features include bookmark sync and some HTML5 features. More details can be read at the Chrome blog.
In addition to extensions, another feature that's moving from our beta to the stable channel on the Windows version of Google Chrome is bookmark sync. For those of you who use several computers -- for example, a laptop at work and a desktop at home -- you can now keep your Google Chrome bookmarks synchronized and up-to-date across computers, without needing to manually recreate your bookmarks every time you switch computers. To read more on bookmark sync, check out this handy guide.

For web developers and designers, we're excited to integrate a number of new HTML5 APIs in this stable release, including LocalStorage, Database API, WebSockets, and more.
