Google released the stable version of Chrome 11. With a modified logo and 25 new security fixes compared to the original, the stable version seems to be a real competitor to Mozilla Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9.
The new Chrome comes with some new features including text-to-speech, a new web-store for extensions themes and apps and a fully integrated translation module. The text-to-speech feature helps the users that have problems in using a proper keyboard. Based on HTML 5 the technology helps the user to use voice commands while browsing a website. At the moment this feature works only on few supported websites and recognizes only the English language.
The web-store is similar to the Add-ons Manager present in Firefox 4, but it has an increased commercial feeling. There are many products that can actually be purchased through this service so it’s more than just an add-ons collection.
Chrome is the first browser to incorporate machine translation in the browser itself, without requiring additional plugins or extensions. When the language on the web page does not match the language preferences set in the browser, Chrome will automatically ask to translate the web page into your preferred language.
