The new version of Google Chrome has a few strong points which are really worth mentioning. It would warn users before downloading malicious files, as a result of Google developers having upgraded security features in the latest stable release.  So, in order to protect users of certain malicious websites and phishing, Google Chrome now warns us before downloading certain types of malicious files.

According to a memeber of the development team, this security feature has been carefully designed, so that malware can be detected without Google Chrome storing the visited URLs or the downloaded files.

Also, Chrome now gives users more control over data downloaded from Web sites and stored on the computer . This includes Flash Player’s Local Shared Objects (LSOs) as a result of a collaboration with the Adobe development team.

Besides improvements in security and privacy, the most recent version of  Google Chrome includes support for hardware-accelerated 3D CSS, which means users will get a better experience on web pages and applications that use 3D effects.

The latest version can be downloaded here: http://download.chip.eu/en/Google-Chrome_3653130.html.
