Chrome Stable Version 9.0 Is Here

9 Things to Try in Google Chrome 9For those who are on the Stable version of Chrome, 9.0 is here. Will this push boost sales on the Chrome Webstore ?

Here is highlights from the blog post which will give you an idea what you are getting with this update.

WebGL is a new technology which brings hardware-accelerated 3D graphics to the browser. With WebGL in Chrome, you can experience rich 3D experiences right inside the browser with no need for additional software. Curious about the three-dimensional possibilities? Try out these demos to experience the power of WebGL in the latest stable version of Chrome.

With Chrome Instant (à la Google Instant), web pages that you frequently visit will begin loading as soon as you start typing the URL. (“Look, Mom – no enter key!”). If supported by your default search engine, search results appear instantly as you type queries in the omnibox. To try out Instant, you’ll need to enable it in the Basics tab of Chrome’s options.

Lastly, the Chrome Web Store is now open to all Chrome users in the United States. As part of this, we’ve now added a link to the Chrome Web Store on the New Tab page, along with two sample apps. (If you don’t use these sample apps, they will automatically disappear after some time).

There was a beta and dev channel update to this week. Canary has been pushed to version 11, but Chrome Dev build is still on version 10. Chromium 11 landed few  days back.

    The blog post says: ‘the Chrome Web Store is now open to all Chrome users in the United States… we’re working hard to expand availability to users around the world soon’. But, as we all seem to know, the Web Store has been available everywhere since the 7th of December. Is this a mistype, or have we all accidentally hacked it?

        Possibly: I’ve never tried it. It seems a sensible suggestion, but why did they not put this in the post? There are barely any paid add-ons.
