Last evening, November 6, Google has unleashed the stable and final release of the Google Chrome 23 web browser, supporting the Linux, Mac OS X, Windows and Chrome Frame platforms.
Google Chrome 23 (the actual version is 23.0.1271.64) includes easier control of website's permissions, enhancements to prolong battery life on portable computers running Windows, and the famous Do Not Track option.
"We recently enabled GPU-accelerated video decoding for Chrome on Windows. Dedicated graphics chips draw far less power than a computer's CPU, so using GPU-accelerated video decoding while watching videos can increase battery life significantly."
"You’ll also find it much easier to view and control any website’s permissions for capabilities such as geolocation, pop-ups, and camera/microphone access. This saves you from having to dig through settings pages to find these permissions. Now, simply click on the page/lock icon next to a website’s address in the omnibox to see a list of permissions and tweak them as you wish." was stated in the official blog announcement.
Just like previous release, the Google Chrome 23 web browser is distributed as .deb files for the latest Ubuntu 12.10 (Quantal Quetzal) and Debian 6.0 distributions, as well as .rpm files for all RPM-based Linux operating systems out there. All the aforementioned packages are supported on both 64-bit and 32-bit architectures.
