Chrome provides high application performance and JavaScript processing speed. Chrome was the first to implement the OminiBox, which is a single input field that works as the address bar as well as search bar (though this feature was first introduced by Mozilla for their browser Firefox). Google Chrome was first introduced in 2008 and now it is currently in its 11th. Due to its comparatively (very) short release cycle of 6 weeks, Chrome 11 was released within two months after the release date of Chrome 10. At the moment, Google Chrome is the third most widely used web browser and around ten-percent of browser users in the world use Google Chrome.

Google Chrome 10 was released in March of 2011. Google Chrome 10 offered an impressive set of features, in addition to its high security, stability and speed.

Another option it provides is the ability to change the minimum font size. A truly useful feature is the ability to synchronize passwords. You can also reorder the applications (“apps”) on the new tab page using drag and drop. Chrome also provides hardware acceleration for web videos. Built-in adobe Flash plug-in had been sandboxed while it introduced background pages. What it means is that, even after you close the browser, it will run in background (an icon will be displayed in the taskbar), and this will be very useful for the uninterrupted execution of applications like Gmail Notifier.

While Google Chrome 11 (released on 27th May, 2011) posses all those impressive features of Chrome 10, it introduced several amazing new features some of which are in fact introduced for the first time ever in to browsers.

The user can speak in to the computer or any other device running Chrome browser and it will convert your speech in to 50 other languages. User can even listen to the real-time translation using the listen feature. GPU-accelerated 3D CSS support has been added. What this means is that, Chrome will support websites with 3D effects using CSS. Another noticeable difference is the introduction of new version of their Google icon.
