Six weeks after celebrating the release of its sixth version, also marking its birthday, Google has released the latest avatar of its browser Chrome 7, true to its promise of speeding up the upgradation process (the guys stuck to the six-week time line).

The new version comes with many changes and include scores of bug fixes, combined with several other features not part of Chrome but available with Beta and also developers build users for the past several months.

Notable changes include:

  • HTML5 parser now updated
  • HTML5 File API
  • Support for directory upload

These now allow for Web content to read those files that are locally stored on the system of the user.

Also:

  • Mac OS X UI automation now has full AppleScript support
  • Novel options to manage cookies
  • It addresses altogether 11 security vulnerabilities in the WebKit-based browser
  • This includes one such vulnerability which is rated by Google as one of five high risk issues

Critical bug fixes involve:

  • A flaw with the form auto-fill functionality (this  has browser crashing capability)

The high-risk bug fixes involve:

  • URL spoofing
  • Memory corruption
  • Elements issues
  • Other crashes.

All in all, this particular release looks rather low on new features when compared to the last version. The browser continues to be lean as well as fast and that’s the key, though at upgradations presumably coming out every six weeks, we will soon lose count of new versions.

Those of you who currently use Chrome can update to the new version by way of the update function available under the About Google Chrome menu item. It’s very much available now for Windows, Linux and OS X too.
