Chrome 9 Promoted to Stable Release

After a while, finally Google has officially promoted Google Chrome 9 to Stable Channel, meaning that it will superseeds Google Chrome 8. Right now, they have Chrome 10 and 11 on development channel, which is focused for integrating new features that will be applied in the next stable channel.

New features included in Google Chrome 9 are: WebGL, Chrome Instant, and the Chrome Web Store.

For you who wanted to test the new WebGL, try to visit this URL using Google Chrome 9. With WebGL in Chrome, you can experience rich 3D experiences right inside the browser with no need for additional software. I find it very interesting and i thought you might be too.

Chrome Web Store is only available for users living in US for now, but Google will soon release it worldwide. Stay tune for more updates about Chrome Web Store on Google Chrome's Blog.

Lastly, here's a short video about Chrome Web Store:


  1. what about slackware builds/pkgs? I just recently ugraded to v.8.0.558.0 (0)
