Google has simply launched a big replace to the steady channel of Chrome OS to model 28.zero.1500.sixty eight, which incorporates a whole lot of nifty options and purported efficiency enhancements. First up are the person-dealing with options, which embrace a newly designed Recordsdata app that now provides get entry to to Shared and Contemporary information from Google power, in addition to new notification pop-ups for Hangouts, Gmail, screenshots and others. Google has also updated the Chrome Office Viewer to make handling of Microsoft Office documents just a little easier. If you decide to dive into chrome://flags, the latest version also offers an “Immersive Mode” which hides more of the browser chrome and gives a full-screen experience.
Under the hood, version 28 brings the new “Blink” rendering engine, which supposedly speeds up browser performance but offered no distinguishable performance change on our Chromebook Pixel. Speaking of the Pixel, you will now see a visual indicator of touch screen input when clicking on a link, which can be useful for non-touch-optimized sites.
Overall this update brings a tightening of the screws around several different areas of Chrome OS, with lots of little tweaks that make living in the browser just a little easier and better performing. Hang around after the break for several screenshots of the new features in action.
