Video: Google releases Chrome 10 for download

Google has released version 10 of its Chrome web browser.

New features include the ability to synchronise website passwords across computers. These passwords can also be encrypted with a passphrase. The latest version also increases the speed of browsing.

"With today's stable release, even your most complex web apps will run more quickly and responsively in the browser," said Tim Steele, software engineer at Google, in a blog post.

The speed improvements are due to a 66% increase in Javascript performance on the V8 benchmark suite, says Steele.

Other features include a new settings interface to help import bookmarks and change the browser homepage more easily. See video below:

 

Google has also extended Chrome's sandboxing technology to integrate Flash player. See video below:

 

The new version can be downloaded at google.com/chrome. Those already using Chrome will receive an automatic update.
