Google Chrome 13

Firefox

Yesterday, Google Chrome released the latest build, version 13.0.782.107. In here, there are some pretty cool updates. And this version has transferred me from Firefox to Chrome for good. Overall, this update has made Chrome faster, and has fixed some security issues. Here are some of the new features in Chrome 13.

Instant Pages:

Instant Pages basically mean loading the page is, well, instant. But how does this work? Google has “guessed links” on keywords that people visit. This allows a “pre-rendered” page to come up, making it pretty instant. This loads text and images extremely fast. You can take this feature off (in settings) but hey, who would do that? Here’s a short video by Google.

Print Preview:

Chrome has created a nice and simple “Print Preview” feature. It’s nice and clean, and simple to use. However, many browsers such as IE and Firefox have had this for quite a while. It is available to Windows, Linux and Mac. Here’s a sample of Print Preview.

Some other features are security updates of course and improvements to the address bar (basically for speed and accuracy).

Updating to the latest version:

For those of you who don’t know how to update, here is how.

(1) Press the Settings button (the wrench near the top on the right).

(2) Press About Google Chrome

(3) On the bottom of the pop-up, wait for it to download.

(4) When prompted, restart your browser.

You’re done now!

Overall, hats off. I give this a full score, 10/10. Bye bye Firefox, ¡Adiós!
