Google announced on the Chrome Blog that it's rolling out Web Speech API support. The feature arrives with the newly released Chrome 25 and will enable developers to integrate speech recognition into web apps.
Web apps, listen up. Today's Chrome Stable release includes support for the Web Speech API (discussed last month), which developers can use to integrate speech recognition capabilities into their web apps.

In addition, today’s release also disables silent extension installs in Chrome for Windows. This keeps Chrome fast and safe by ensuring that you consent to every extension that’s installed on your computer.
