Google has just released a new stable version of its Chrome browser (hooray for updates) which brings the very interesting “Instant Pages” service that makes browsing the internet even faster. In case you didn’t know how Instant Pages works, it preloads the website which it thinks you’re going to open whenever you perform a Google Search; in this case it’s usually the first result of a search. Think of it as an accelerated “I’m feeling lucky” button.
The Instant Pages has been part of the Chrome beta channel since June, and it looks like it’s polished enough to make it to the stable version of Crhome. Other improvements include an updated Omnibox that is touted to be “smarter” than before, making it easier to return to pages you’ve previously visited. Chrome 13 has over 5,200 revisions, and over two dozen security bug fixes, so even if you don’t use the new features, you’ll be having a safer web experience.
Head over to Google’s website to download the latest version of Chrome or if you already have it, just let the auto update run or check for updates manually (Customize > About Google Chrome). Let us know what you think of Google Chrome 13 in the comments below.
