While some of you may still be chugging along on Chrome 1.0, or, if you’re like me running a beta build of 4.0, the announcement of version 3.0 becoming officially declared “stable” will have multiple meanings. For some, it will be time for a big update. For others, it will be old news. Regardless of which category you fall in to, Chrome has accomplished quite a lot in the year (plus a few days) that it’s been available. With dramatic speed improvements — 150% in javascript since beta 1 to be exact — Chrome is becoming quite the contender. But speed isn’t everything now is it. Bolstering that pep in it’s step is 3,505 bug fixes, fully implemented theme support, improved omni box, a slightly redesigned tab/top bar/tab page, as well as more HTML 5 support thrown in to make a great browser even better. Though it isn’t all peaches and cream as Linux and Mac users are still left out in the cold — that is if you don’t take advantage of nightly builds of Chromium for said platforms. In the past year, have you taken the plunge and wrapped your little fingers around Chrome(-ium) or are you waiting for that next update just over the hill?
