Google Chrome 2.0

google-chrome-logo-nonbetaI was shocked last month when Google dropped the beta designation from Chrome. Chrome was in beta a mere three months, whereas some products such as Gmail are STILL in beta after more than four years!  Sometimes I just don’t understand why they do weird things like this, but it’s really all just semantics.

Well, to match their breakneck speed out of beta, they’ve now released a 2.0 version in the Google Chrome dev channel. There are a few new features, the most notable being the ability to do full-page zoom.

Prior to the 2.0 release, if you zoom on a page (Ctrl+ and Ctrl-, or using your scroll wheel on your mouse while pressing the control button) only the text zooms and the images remain the same. The 2.0 release now properly zooms text and images together. Here are a few other blog posts around the web describing some of the other new features in Google Chrome 2.0:

    Looking at the version of chromium nightly builds, I think google is slow and steady in updating chrome. They are very cautious about stability and optimal end user experience. May be that is the reason behind, why Google dropped the beta designation from Chrome.

    I was a Firefox user and Just moved to “Google Chrome”. I've found it a real magic of the world. Although i miss lot of plugins of Firefox. But i am still happy with the “Big.G. Chrome”
