Chrome 32 released
With the latest release from Google’s kitty, there will be no more scrambling to find out which tab is playing that annoying piece of loud music or auto-playing any videos in the Chrome browser. Google has announced the release of Chrome 32, an updated version of its Web browser for Windows, Mac and Linux. Users can now upgrade to the latest release using the browser’s built-in updater, or download it directly from google.com/chrome.
The new version includes tab indicators, a new look for Windows 8 Metro mode, and automatic blocking of malware downloads. Users can now visually scan their tabs for a speaker icon to quickly find the ones playing any sound in the background. Besides, the update also allows you to see which tabs are currently using the device’s webcam. This addition has been a long time coming and is perhaps a boon for users annoyed by unwanted noise.
Windows 8 users who browse Chrome in Metro mode can now manage multiple Chrome windows and launch Chrome Apps from an integrated app launcher. Further, the company’s Safe Browsing service has grown tougher, warning users about malicious websites and files. Also, users can now use a beta preview to help family members who may need some guidance in browsing the Web by creating supervised users. Simply create a supervised user, visit chrome.com/manage, and you can review their browsing activity as well as set site restrictions.
In addition, Chrome 32 now comes with lots of ‘under the hood’ changes for stability and performance and as many as 11 security fixes.
