Google Chrome 7 arrives with fixes for hundreds of bugs, some new features


A new stable version of the Chrome browser is out this week on the Windows, Mac and Linux platforms. While light on new features, the new release incorporates literally hundreds of bug fixes together with an updated HTML5 parser. Mac users will welcome the new AppleScript support for AppleScripts, or use it with the Automator tool. Other new capabilities include support for the File API, directory update and a new dialog for managing blocked cookies in bulk.

In a blog entry, Chrome Product Manager Jeff Chang wrote that this new version is part of Google's (NASDAQ: GOOG) strategy to double the pace of new stable releases to once every six months. As usual, existing Chrome users will get the update automatically, though you can also download it directly from the Google Chrome download page if you're currently on a beta version or trying it out for the first time.
