Chrome 34 adds responsive image support, updated Web Audio

updated 03:45 pm EDT, Tue April 8, 2014

Images can be picked to match device specs

Google has released Chrome 34 for Windows, Mac, and Linux users. The main addition is support for "responsive" images. This allows web developers to set multiple versions of a graphic, improving speed and bandwidth consumption on less powerful devices. Whereas a Windows desktop user might see the full-quality version of an image, for example, someone on an iPhone might see a lower-resolution file. The iOS and Android apps haven't been updated yet, however.

Chrome has also been given an unprefixed version of the Web Audio API, bringing the browser in line with W3C draft specifications. Prefixed use has in fact been deprecated, and will be eliminated entirely in a future Chrome update.

Google has also added a variety of security fixes, new apps/extension APIs, stability and performance improvements, and a new look for the Windows 8 Metro mode. The browser can also import supervised users, carrying over permissions that automatically sync across devices and platforms.
