Google Chrome 10 review

By Dave Bailey 15 Mar 2011
Google Chrome 10 Verdict: The major new feature in Chrome 10 is the ability to run web applications in the background. There is a useful improvement in the preferences user interface, but the touted JavaScript performance improvements – a 66 per cent boost – achieved through Google’s own benchmarks, are not reflected in our benchmarks, which showed a four to nine per cent increase recorded on our Windows systems. A good update, adding significantly to one of the top two browsers.
Overall Rating: five star
Price: £ Free
Pros: Ability to run web apps in the background; improved settings interface; sandboxing for Flash videos. Cons: Chrome still updates itself automatically, and although enterprises can alleviate this, single users cannot stop it without relatively advanced knowledge.
