Google Chrome for Linux has finally become ‘stable’.
The first pre-alpha release was made almost one year ago on June 4th and the development since then has been breakneck.
In an announcement on the official Chromium blog, Chrome engineers Evan Stade & Elliot Glaysher said:-
“With continued improvements in plugin support, extensions functionality, and desktop integration, as well as new features such as desktop notifications and bookmark sync, we believe this release of Google Chrome for Linux to be a solid, high-performance, fully-featured, all-purpose browser.
From the early porting days of layout test fixing, deep and hairy posix and raw X11 code, to designing a truly native UI and building a host of new and polished features, we’re thrilled to work with the larger community to deliver a fast, stable, secure, and sophisticated browser.”
