Google Chrome Takes Off The Beta Label

Google is shifting its Web bro

Google removed on Thursday the test label from its browser, called Chrome in an effort to lure Web surfers away from the leading browsers, Microsoft's Internet Explorer and the Mozilla's Firefox.

Google claims that it has made great progress in the development of Chrome, which offers better stability and performance of plug-ins (particularly video), fast start up and loading of pages, better bookmark features that allows users to switch between another browser and Google Chrome with the bookmark import and export features. In addition, the final version of Chrome has grouped all of the features, which affect user privacy.

Google Chrome's unique sandbox technology also creates an additional layer of defense against harmful software, while the Safe Browsing feature provides protection against phishing and malware attacks for many browser users.

Google also said that it was working to add some common browser features such as form autofill and RSS support in the near future, while it is also developing an extensions platform along with support for Mac and Linux.

The updates will automatically be made for people already using Chrome.

Since its Sept. 2 introduction, Chrome has attracted more than 10 million active users around the world, according to a Google blog.

Chrome still has a long way to catch up to Internet Explorer, which has about 70 percent of the market, depending on the differing estimates from various market researchers. Firefox held about 20 percent, while Apple's Safari was third with less than 10 percent. Chrome has less than 1 percent.
