Google Chrome 21 stable release adds Retina MacBook Pro support, and more

Google adds Retina MacBook Pro support, and more, into Chrome 21 stable release

| Internet Browsers News | Posted: Aug 1, 2012 11:23 am

Google's latest Chrome Stable release, version 21, adds a few new things into the mix of Google's popular web browser. Chrome now sports the getUserMedia API, which lets your web cam and microphone get accessed by web apps, all without a plug-in. The getUserMedia API is, what Google are calling, the first step in WebRTC, a new real-time communications standard which has its dreams pegged on allowing high-quality video and communication on the web.

The getUserMedia API also allows web pages to create new experiences such as Webcam Toy and Magic Xylophone. The latest Stable release of Chrome also includes "deeper Google Cloud Print integration, expanded support for gamepads, and support for high-resolution Mac Retina screens." One of the best bits there is support for the Retina MacBook Pro.

 

The improvements to the 2880x1800 resolution on the rMBP looks great, as the image above shows. The left just looks, bad, after looking at the Retina-powered Chrome on the right. I'm itching to get my hands on a new Retina MBP, the urge is rising, heavily.
