Google Chrome 1.0

The Google Company announced today the graduation of Google Chrome as an official product of the company when abandoning the Beta label, a characteristic that usually accompanies several other projects in development.

The new version, which jumps from 0.4 to 1.0, presents a series of important improvements such as stability and performance, even more improved web page rendering system, bookmark manager and privacy control. According to Google, some features like auto-completion of forms and RSS support should appear in the future, as well as versions aimed at Mac and Linux.

Was Chrome really ready for prime time? Some international blogs believe that this move by Google would have a single reason: to make an agreement with computer manufacturers like Dell and HP to pre-install the browser (some agreements usually require the final version of a software).
