At the end of the past week, Google made available a new development milestone of the next iteration of the Chrome browser. The Mountain View company is making headway with the development of Chrome 2.0 and has now reached version 18.104.22.168. At the same time, Microsoft is on the verge of releasing Internet Explorer 8 RTW
, which has already been reported as being finalized, while Mozilla will rebrand Firefox 3.1 as Firefox 3.5
, in the evolution from Beta 3 to Beta 4 of the next version of its open source browser.
“Google Chrome's Dev channel has been updated to 22.214.171.124. The highlights for this week: new – NTLM auth without automatic logon; Remote Desktop and Vista Theme changes now work nicely; new French and Polish dictionaries; and better support for PAC files and use of V8 to process them (use --proxy-resolver-v8 to try). Fixes: more improvements to full screen mode and many crash and stability fixes,” Jonathan Conradt
, Google Engineering program manager, revealed.
