Now, we’re happy to dispatch a new release to the Stable channel of Chrome, following up on last month’s Beta channel release. This release contains two important technologies which allow developers to create even more authoritative web apps and games:
- The Web Audio API enables developers to add fancy audio effects such as room simulation and spatialization.
- Native Client is an open-source technology which allows C and C++ code to be seamlessly and securely executed inside the browser. Currently, Native Client only supports applications listed in the Chrome Web Store, but we are working to remove this limitation as soon as possible.
We can say that this release as well covers some variations for our Chrome users on Mac OS X Lion. For all web pages, Chrome usages Lion’s overlay scrollbars, which seem only while you’re scrolling. We’ve also added initial provision for Lion’s full-screen mode, triggered by a full-screen button or Ctrl+Shift+F. Finally, we’ve stable many crash bugs, and added some all-around graphic polish.
If you now have Chrome installed, it will routinely update itself to the new version quickly.
