Google Chrome 17 is out!Posted: February 9, 2012
Google has released version 17. The first thing I noticed after the update is the change in the “new tab” button. It no longer shows the + symbol.
Another thing is the item on the upper right when you open a “blank” new tab. Google recommends that you use Google Chrome Sync. To backup (to your online Google account) and sync your bookmarks, settings and history across multiple computers.
History defaults into “edit” mode. You no longer have to toggle edit mode on and off to make specific changes to your history.
key features from the Google Chrome release notes:
- New Extensions APIs
- Updated Omnibox Prerendering
- Download Scanning Protection
- Many other small changes
