Google Chrome 9.0.597.107

Google is smarting: with the imminent release of Internet Explorer 9, Microsoft has stolen a march on its rivals in the browser market for the first time. The slimmed down user interface and faster loading times are a direct threat to Chrome’s major selling points, which is why version 9 of Chrome has quickly found itself pushed into development.
Version 9 finally implements the long-promised performance improvements over version 6, with hardware acceleration implemented in most components, so that t he vast majority of web pages are now displayed much more quickly than in previous builds.

Version 9 now supports Google Instant, which anticipates what URLs and search terms you're going to enter by loading web pages as you start typing. You can also now see the sign-in page for Google Cloud Print service, which will eventually allow you to print over the internet to compatible printers from wherever you are. Chrome 9 also adds built-in sandboxing of the Adobe Flash Player plug-in for security reasons to help block potential malicious Flash code from gaining a foothold on your system.

Note that Google Chrome 9 is the stable release. You can download an alternative development version, currently v10.x, if you want to try the latest version, along with debug code and other minor issues.
