Up until today three versions of Google Chrome were available for download. Google Chrome 4 was the stable channel that was offered to all visitors who wanted to download the Google browser. The beta channel was already at version 5 while the developer release recently was bumped to version 6.
This has changed today with the release of Google Chrome 5 stable for all supported operating systems. Windows, Mac and Linux users can now download a faster version of the web browser directly from Google.
Google Chrome 5 Stable comes with many additions compared to the previous versions of the stable channel.
New and improved features include synchronization of bookmarks and browser preferences, HTML5 features such as the geolcation api or web sockets, and a faster rendering engine and better overall performance of the browser.
The internal Flash Player has not been integrated into Google Chrome 5 stable yet but the developers promise to add this feature with the full release of Flash Player 10.1 which will be released soon.
Google Chrome stable users will soon be prompted to auto update the web browser soon. Users who do not want to wait that long can download Google Chrome 5 stable from the official download site.
