Download Google Chrome 4.0.266.0 Dev
Google Chrome has had a very busy week. The latest beta came out, the first to be released on all supported platforms, Windows, Mac and Linux, a major milestone for the project. Google also opened the doors to its Extensions Gallery, which is already proving rather popular. However, in order to make sure that the latest Chrome build was beta quality, the latest updates to the dev channel have been mostly small bug fixes.
In the meantime, the dev team was still working on a bunch of new features and the Chromium project was moving ahead. Now that the beta is out the door, the dev channel was also updated moving ahead quite a few builds from Chrome 22.214.171.124 straight to 4.0.266.0. Interestingly, the Mac build was held back as the team is still working on bringing extensions support on par with the other platforms.
“Initial implementation of the HTML5 sandbox attribute for iframes. Copying an image from a web page and pasting into Gmail now works. Spellchecker moved to renderer,” Orit Mazor from the Google Chrome team listed the updates for all platforms. “Fixed download dialog truncation in German locale. Fixed options panel truncation in various locales. Implement keyboard access between bookmarks and main toolbar” were the fixes specific to the Windows build. The Linux build also got several fixes.
