Google Chrome has been released for a good few months now, but so far there haven’t been many major features which tempts users of more popular open source browsers such as Firefox to switch over. Could this be about to change? Check out the video below about the new release of Google Chrome 2.
Here are some improvements that you’ll notice right away:
Improved New Tab Page: The most requested feature from users was the ability to remove thumbnails from the New Tab page. Now you can finally hide that embarrassing gossip blog from the Most Visited section.
Full Screen Mode: If you’ve ever given a presentation or watched a large video using Google Chrome, you might have wished you could use every last pixel on your screen for the content. Now you can hide the title bar and the rest of the browser window by hitting F11 or selecting the option in the Tools menu.
Form Autofill: Filling out your information in forms over and over again can be tedious. Form autofill helps by showing information you’ve previously entered into the same form fields automatically. If at any point you want to clear out your information, that’s easy to do from the Tools menu.
Increased Stability: Google Chrome is more stable than ever–we have fixed over 300 bugs that caused crashes since launch.
