The version 3 of Google’s Chrome browser is now considered stable, and does have some fixes for some things that were causing some to wonder why things were not functioning well. ( But the new and fun stuff is found in the version 4 builds.)
The stable version of Google’s Chrome browser has just received an update and moved up in tag number to 18.104.22.168. According to its makers, the latest build includes the following:
– Resolved a history issue that affected going back from queries in Google Maps.
– Fixed issue with Adobe Acrobat Reader 9.2, where no content would be displayed.
– Fixed an infinite loop in AAC decoding.
– Fixed a top crasher.
– Fix issues where setInterval sometimes eats 100% CPU.
– Fix for the CVE-2009-XXXX security issue (Severity: High) – Possible memory corruption in the Gears plugin
To get Chrome up-to-date either use its built-in update feature or download the latest version from this page.
The above list, taken from Tech Connect, shows that the problems now fixed in version 3 of Chrome, should get taken care of in Iron soon, I know that I have seen the Adobe Reader problem with Iron on two of my machines, and the zooming to 100% CPU usage has been seen on my Celeron laptop.
Now that the STABLE version 3.xx.xx is there, perhaps some of the guys at Iron will add-in some of the options that are in the bleeding edge 4 versions, The latest Iron release was ahead of the stable version number of Chrome. Maybe it will continue that way.
