Google Launches Chrome 32 Browser
Google today released Chrome 32 for Windows, Mac, and Linux.
While users running beta versions of Chrome might already be familiar with some of the new features, it is the first time Google has brought these features to the masses.
One of the features that are present in Chrome 32 are tab indicators for when a site is playing sound, accessing the webcam and sending video to your Chromecast. Google uses a speaker icon, blue rectangle and red dot to indicate these different functions.
Google has fixed five vulnerabilities in its Chrome 32 browser and also has activated a feature that will block malicious file downloads automatically. The change is a major security upgrade for Chrome and will help prevent users from unwittingly downloading harmful files, an attack vector that attackers count on for the success of drive-by downloads and other attacks.
Google has also introduced the beta version of its “supervised users” feature, which will help parents monitor and control their child’s browser activity.
If you’re a Windows 8 user, Chrome now looks much better on Microsoft’s latest OS. In Metro mode, Chrome 32 now looks like ChromeOS with its integrated app launched on Windows.
