Google has pushed out an update to its popular web browser, Chrome, bringing it up to version 32. Chrome 32 includes tab indicators, a new look for Windows 8 Metro mode, and an automatic blocking of malware downloads.

The tab indicators function is the stand out feature here, where Chrome will now indicate which tab among your sea of tabs, is producing sound. This is great if there's a video ad playing on one of your tabs, but you don't know where. Now you just have to look for a speaker icon on your tab, and you can shut it down. Not only that, but Chrome 32 will display which tab is using your webcam, or casing your TV through Chromecast.

If you're a Windows 8 user, Chrome now looks much better on Microsoft's latest OS. It looks exactly like Chrome OS within Windows 8, which is a little sneaky of the Mountain View-based search giant. But, this is a feature that might push me to testing out a Windows 8.1-based machine, because I'm so intertwined into Google's countless services.
