Google releases final version of Chrome

As recently confirmed but a lot sooner than we expected, Google's speedy browser, Chrome has now officially shed its beta skin with the release of its 1.0.154.36 version. According to its maker, this fifteenth Chrome release features:

 

- Better stability and performance of plug-ins (particularly video).
- Even more speed. Since the first beta, the V8 JavaScript engine runs 1.4 times faster on the SunSpider benchmark and 1.5 times faster on the V8 benchmark - and there is more speed to come.
- Bookmark manager and privacy controls. It's now easier to switch between another browser and Google Chrome with the bookmark import and export features, and we added a new simple way to manage large numbers of bookmarks, too.
