Google announces a new stable release of Chrome browser

Chrome 12

Google has a new stable release of the chrome browser that it released. The new release promises security, privacy, and graphics improvements. The new browser, according to google is more secure and has enhancements on Safe Browsing. You will get warned when downloading malicious files when using Chrome 12. The browser detects malicious content without Chrome or Google ever having to know about the URLs you visit or the files you download.

Chrome also now gives you more control over the data that websites store on your computer. This includes Flash Player’s Local Shared Objects (LSOs), which were previously only manageable using an online settings application on Adobe’s website. We’ve worked closely with Adobe to integrate Flash LSO deletion directly into Chrome, making it easier for you to manage your online privacy.
