Chrome 10 is out of betaGoogle has announced that the speedy Chrome 10 is out of beta and can be downloaded now by all Chrome (and other) users. Looked at it when Google launched the Cr-48 Chrome OS laptop, but back then there were things that needed fixing – it should all work now. Javascript performance is up 66% and this is important because Javascript is used in modern Web 2.0 applications.

The user interface has improved a bit, especially for exporting/importing bookmarks. Google has even added a search box to find settings, which can now be directly accessed via a web address – this is good if you’re helping someone remotely: copy/paste the address to an option and your correspondent should go exactly where you need them to.

Security-wise, Google has also “sandboxed”  (or put in a compartment) the code that is executed by the integrated Flash player. This adds an extra layer of protection from malicious Flash objects. All in all, this should be an easy upgrade.
