Google Chrome has recently implemented several changes that aim to improve the overall browsing experience of each user. Here's a quick rundown of what they've updated.
  • Implemented support for hardware-accelerated 3D CSS which allows web developers to apply 3D effects to website content.
  • Chrome now warns users when downloading malicious files. This is on top of their safe browsing features that protect against malware and phishing websites. Google assures Chrome users that Chrome will be doing all these without tracking what sites you visit or what files you are downloading.
  • Users can now delete Flash Local Shared Objects (LSO) directly on Google Chrome which increases your control over your online privacy.
  • Chrome features preliminary support for screen readers such as JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver which are highly useful for the blind or visually impaired.
  • Chrome has removed the Google Gears plug-in, to maximize the use of HTML5.
