Google Chrome is out of beta
Google today announced that its free, open source web browser, Google Chrome, is now out of beta, after just over 100 days of work to improve the stability and performance of the browser.

The company says that there are over ten million active Google Chrome users around the world.

Google Chrome was designed to improve the way users experience the Internet. Whereas in the early days of the Internet, web pages were frequently little more than text, today's websites are built to do a range of powerful things including videos, games, collaboration tools and much more. Google developed its web browser to be able to handle this new web with speed, ease and stability.

Since launching Chrome in September, Google has improved the browser in a few key areas, including stability and performance, speed and bookmarm managment.

The company have made improvements to their V8 JavaScript engine that add significantly to the browser's speed.

Also, all of the features in Google Chrome which affect user privacy are now grouped in one place with detailed explanations for each one, giving more control to users.

Google is now planning on adding more features to Google Chrome along with support for Mac and Linux.
