Some of our article which covered Chrome 8 Build story from day 1,

Google is gearing up to deliver yet another major version of kits open source browser this year, namely Chrome 9.0, or at least to get early adopters a taste.

Anthony Laforge, Chrome Technical Program Manager revealed following information,

Howdy folks,

We’re 41 days away from the branch point for mstone:9 and we have 1236 open bugs, at the time of this note.  Given our open and close rates we will need to punt approximately 956 bugs in order to be ready for 9.0 which as a rule of thumb means 4 out of every 5 bugs we have needs to be moved out. Once we hit branch point only ReleaseBlock-* bugs will be accepted (i.e. crash, security, and bugs to disable features).

Part of this new release cycle is a better focus on scope management, and tightly managing what goes into our releases will help to make us more predictable.  I appreciate your help and patience as we transition to this new system.  I realize that it’s not without some discomfort, but you guys have done a great job thus far, and I trust that when we are past these initial bumps the road will be smoother.

Kind Regards,

Anthony Laforge
Technical Program Manager
Mountain View, CA

Think we no need to explain anything more about Chrome 9 plan as it is crystal clear in above sentences. Google might not be able to wrap up Chrome 9.0 by the end of 2010, but early adopters are sure to get a Chromium 9.0 build in the near future, followed by a Dev and perhaps even a Beta release of Chrome 8.0′s successor.

Lots features has been moved to Chrome 9 and it will be one of the big release by Chrome developers which may arrive early next year.

Sometimes it is easier predicting the weather of next month than what features will make it into the next Chrome release.

chrome google cloud print service1 Update: Chrome Gets Google Cloud Print service

Google Cloud Print enables any application (web, desktop, mobile) on any device to print to any printer.

Applications submit print jobs to the service via the web-based common print dialog or API offered by the service. Google Cloud Print then sends the print job to the selected printer which the user has previously registered with the service. A new class of cloud-aware printers connects directly to the service and offers the best user experience. Legacy printers connect to the service via a proxy.

Tech Tip: Learn more about Google Cloud Print

Background Web Apps enable a future app to boot in the background at system startup and continue running even if all Windows have been closed. There was no further information and it is unclear if and when this feature will make it into a beta, developer or final version of Chrome.

Enables WebKit’s XSS Auditor (cross-site scripting protection). This feature aims to protect you from certain attacks of malicious web sites. It improves your security, but it might not be compatible with all web sites.

Tech Tip: Do you remember the recent bom sobando attack on Orkut.com ? Hackers used XSS to attack the website and spread unwanted messages around, that too without any action from a user.

Automatically disables plug-ins with known security vulnerabilities and offers update links for them. Outdated plugins create another loophole for hackers to gain control of your system. Most of the times plugin authors roll out new updates to fix vulnerabilities.

Tech Tip: This is very true in the case of Flash on browsers. That’s why Flash has been integrated in Chrome 6.

These are the new features which have been added about:lab in Chrome latest build. Still we aren’t clear whether these new features will be integrated upcoming Chrome 7 or it is a preparation for Chrome 8.

As we are getting closer to Chrome 7 release these features are making users go crazy about this web browser. Well these features can put Chrome on upper hand in browsers war as compared to Firefox and Internet Explorer 9.

Google instant search chrome image1 Is Google Integrating Instant Search in Chrome 8?

Google is running high on its recent success. To be clear many things are happening around Google now a days like Instant Search Engine, Chrome 7 development and news about new Facebook social media rival, currently named as GoogleMe.

Google is clear on its new strategy of releasing new Chrome version every six weeks and working strongly towards it. With every new version of Chrome, Google has shown some very good improvement which Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera and others took years to achieve.

The major updates in latest Chrome versions are,

  • Chrome 5: All about JavaScript Acceleration
  • Chrome 6: All about UI upgrades and HTML5 updates
  • Chrome / Chromium 7: Will be more about GPU Hardware Acceleration

As we saw, Chrome 6 got many ultimate features in it. And now Chromium 7 or for simplicity Chrome 7 is getting another total make over as well. Nightly builds of Chromium is showing some great changes in it and Google confirmed that the next version is all about GPU integration.

And now! Are you amazed by using Google Instant Search? Well I personally enjoyed using it. Search while you type. Simple and best.

Before trying out some awesome things with Chrome, download any DEV version of latest Chromium project from the below mentioned link,

http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/snapshots/chromium-rel-xp/

Done with downloading? Installed? Now try out this executable switch,

  • Step 1: Right Click on Chrome shortcut and select Properties
  • Step 2: Go to Shortcut tab, on Target after Chrome.exe give a space and type –enable-match-preview and apply.
  • C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\Chromium\Application\chrome.exe –enable-match-preview

Now open the Chromium, start typing what you like in URL bar. What you saw? Shocked? Yes, this is what we are speaking about. Google is trying to integrate its new search engine feature Instant search in Chrome.

google chrome instant search image1 Is Google Integrating Instant Search in Chrome 8?

There are many switches available for dev releases. It is unlikely that Instant search switch will make Chrome 7, but it is somewhat obvious that this feature may go live in Chrome 8 as Chrome 7 is getting GPU updates and extended HTML5 features.

More about Instant Search switch…

Previously, this switch was displaying search result in separate window and most visited sites window. The latest build has put small arrow on top-left corner to switch to content window and search result will be displayed in same window.

Google Chrome has achieved lot of things in its very short journey of 2 years. Taking out Firefox and Internet Explorer is not so easy in browsers war. But Chrome 7 will be very tough competitor for Firefox 4 and Internet Explorer 9.
