Software Update: Google Chrome 5.0.375.55

Google has released a new stable version of its Chrome web browser. The update, which has version number 5.0.375.55, is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Google Chrome is available in three different versions, namely stable, beta and dev. Development versions are still in an early stage of development and are therefore the least stable. New in this release is, among other things, the possibility to synchronize not only bookmarks, but also settings and themes, and to add files via drag & drop. In addition, the bookmark manager has been given a facelift and various HTML5 options have been added. In addition, we see the necessary bug fixes in the changelog.

Stable Channel Update

Google Chrome 5.0.375.55 has been released to the Stable channel for Linux, Mac and Windows.
