Google Release Chrome 10: Focus On Speed, Simplicity And Safety

Google has unveiled its Chrome 10 web browser bringing significant JavaScript improvements, new settings interface and password synchronisation.

The company said in a blog post that the latest version of Chrome comes with an updated Crankshaft JavaScript engine which is 66 per cent faster than in previous versions.

Google has also added a new search box that will allow users to quickly search for the settings they want to change in Chrome. The browser will also let users copy and paste direct links on Chrome's address bar to go to the desired settings page directly.

“Chrome’s new settings interface will help you get to the right settings quickly so you don’t have to dig endlessly to find a way to import your bookmarks or change your browser’s homepage,” Google explained.

Chrome 10 also comes with a new password synchronisation feature that will let users sync the saved passwords across different computers running the Chrome browser. Users can add encryption to the passwords for security. The option can be accessed from the 'Personal Stuff' page on Chrome or by simply typing 'sync' on the search bar.

The web browser also comes with a fully sandboxed Flash player for systems running Windows Vista or higher to protect users from web pages that exploit Flash vulnerabilities.
