Google Chrome 1.0 launches

As promised just yesterday, the full, non-beta version of Google's Chrome Internet browser is now available for download. The simple-appearing browser, which thus far supports only Windows Vista and XP SP2 systems, was released in beta form back in September and promises to make web browsing faster, easier and safer. It will allow users to perform Google searches straight from the address bar, which will return suggestions for searches and web pages as they type.

Other new features include private browsing windows that will not be saved into history logs, thumbnails of favorite pages from any tab and crash control that will close the faulty tab only, so as not to close the whole window. To enhance safety, Google Chrome will warn surfers when they're about to visit a website that is suspected to be unsafe, be it phishing, malware or otherwise.
The Google browser will also sport a faster JavaScript engine that uses the PC's CPU for processing and emphasizes web standards.

Linux and Mac OS X versions are due in early 2009.
