Google has released Google Chrome 17 alpha stable update with some new features including secure downloading, and faster page loading. Are there any changes or features worth checking out?
Official Chrome blog:
“When you start typing in the omnibox and the URL autocompletes to a site you’re very likely to visit, Chrome will prerender the page, so it will appear faster–sometimes, even instantly–as soon as you hit Enter. To learn more, check out the post from our latest Beta release.
On the security front, Chrome now does even more to help protect you from malicious downloads. In addition to checking a list of known bad files, Chrome also does checks on executable files (like “.exe” and “.msi” files). If the executable doesn’t match a whitelist, Chrome checks with Google for more information, such as whether the website you’re accessing hosts a high number of malicious downloads.”
