Better stability and performance of plug-ins (particularly video). Video and audio glitches were among the most common bugs fixed during the beta period. If you had problems watching videos with Google Chrome in the past, you should be pleasantly surprised with the performance now.
Bookmark manager and privacy controls. We heard you! Better bookmark features were a top request from our users. It’s now easier to switch between another browser and Google Chrome with the bookmark import and export features, and we added a new simple way to manage large numbers of bookmarks, too. We also wanted to make it even easier for you to control your browsing data, so all of the features in Google Chrome which affect user privacy are now grouped in one place with detailed explanations for each one.
Google has a long history of keeping its apps in beta period for long time, but not in the case of Chrome. According to Techcrunch soon Chrome is coming out of beta. That means computer makers and others can bundle chrome on their systems.
Although it is good to see a final version of the browser still there is no news on when Chrome gets addon support. Addon support will definetly help to get more users to use chrome. Not only addons but they haven’t yet released versions for Mac and Linux officially, many users are waiting for a Mac version of chrome.
