A while back we talked about some of the brilliant new feature that were coming with the latest beta version of Chrome. If you were as excited about these features as we were you will be glad to know that Chrome 6 has been released to the stable channel.
This effectively means that Google Chrome 6 is now the latest version of Google’s browser. While you can find out more about Google Chrome 6 by checking out previous coverage of the beta release — the features are pretty much the same — here are some of it’s salient features in brief:
As Google Chrome 6 becomes stable, Google Chrome 7 is now the next version to look forward to, and with 7 there is a lot to look forward to.
A long while back when Microsoft first unveiled Internet Explorer 9 they talked about how it would utilize your computer’s graphics hardware to accelerate your web browsing experience. While Microsoft was far from shipping a hardware accelerated browser at the time, Mozilla was quick to follow with an actual prototype of hardware accelerated rendering in Firefox. In the recently released Fierfox 4 beta 4, Direct2D support is one of the new feature, provided you have the right hardware.
While hardware acceleration in Google Chrome has been in discussionfor a while, it seems that in the latest version Google Chrome 7, hardware acceleration support will be available. It is quite possible —considering how fast new version of Google Chrome come out— that it may be the second one to ship a stable browser with hardware acceleration support, possibly before Microsoft releases IE9; it is quite likely that Firefox 4 will be the first to boast this feature when it releases later this year.
As we see richer media content on the web, with complex animations, more use of the canvas, and video the requirement for hardware acceleration in web browsing will become clearer.
