Chrome 10 Download: Review and Problems

Some of you may not be aware of this, but Google has just gone live with the full version of Chrome 10 – the latest version of their popular web browser. We have some opinions on the new software to share with you, and also some problems that have been reported already too.

First of all, if you’re yet to download Chrome 10, you can download it from Google’s website here for either PC, Mac or Linux. If you’re looking for an early review before bothering with the download, you’ll find a useful article here from ComputerWorld.

New features of Chrome 10 include a new javascript engine, Flash sandboxing and overall speed and security improvements. You’ll also get better syncing and a new options interface to play around with.

If you’ve already tried the beta version of Chrome 10, downloading the full stable version should be a no brainer for you. However, there are a few problems which have been mentioned already on the official Google support forums. One of these problems is the lack of WebGL support which one user in particular has been complaining about since updating to Chrome 10.

Having read through the other user comments in this thread, it looks like the GPU problem is also affecting users on various Windows XP Service Packs and also users running Linux software such as Ubuntu 10.10. Can any of you confirm this problem as well?

Give us your feedback on Chrome 10, either about the review or if you’ve discovered any problems with it after updating. You may also find this review roundup from Richi Jennings over at Computer World useful.
