As you all know Google is experimenting many features inside chromium labs these days. And we have been following Google team from the day one they started adding new features inside Chromium under about:flags(initially about:labs).

Following are some of the features under about:flags which are being experimenting by Google,

  1. Instant Search As Option
  2. Cloud Print servic

Many features are getting integrated in Chrome final version and few are still under testing.

Just few days back Google updated beta channel to Chrome 8 and final version will be out by end of the month. Chrome 9 build has already started and Google is experimenting many features in it.

The latest build, Chromium 9.0.582.0 added three new experimental features. Following are the explanation on three features,

#1. Snap Start

Description given by Chromium team for snap start is “Enables an experimental TLS extension which removes a round trip from HTTPS handshakes.” I know you would have confused what it is actually.

TLS(Transport Layer Security) is a protocol used in secures HTTPS. We love SSL/TLS because of the privacy and security that it gives to our users and, like everything, we want to make it faster.

How HTTPS works?

When you visit any secure site(HTTPS site), the client(browser) send a handshake request to webserver and waits for confirmation. Once the round trip is completed, client starts retrieving page contents.

This round trip depends on on how far away the webserver is from the client. So usually https site loading time depends on the distance.

Advantage of Snap Start

This feature forces Chrome to proceed to send out a request ahead of receiving the confirmation that the handshake was completed. By the time handshake was successful, you would have already connected to the new page before receiving the notification that the handshake had completed.

#2. Check for known conflicts with 3rd party modules

This is another experimental feature added in Chromium labs/flag. This feature enables a background check that warns you when a software incompatibility is detected (ie. 3rd party modules that crash the browser).

Few days my Twitter buddy @AskAaronLee suggested his friend @LDbyClarissa for her query on Chrome. Her query was,

Chrome keeps giving me an “awe snap” on each page i try to open up, or use. Even the help page. Tried all suggestion in google chrome help forum for this issue and no luck. :/

Well I couldn’t reply to her that time. Here  we are explaining what could be reason for that.

Chrome browser usually crashes due to plugin incompatibility. Adobe Flash and a PDF reader plugins sometime doesn’t work properly in few sites. Unusual suggestion is, deleting cookies and flash contents saved by Chrome.

This Chrome experimental feature adds support for these kind of errors.

#3. Experimental Extension APIs

Google says this feature “Enables experimental extension APIs. Note that the extension gallery doesn’t allow you to upload extensions that use experimental APIs.”

This features is mainly added for extension developers who have to create new extensions after the APIs are released. And it enable extensions will be ready and available well before even the feature supporting that extensions is added for all users.

Watch out this space more updates! Browser war is getting hotter day by day!

These are the three experimental features added by Chromium team in Chrome 9 latest build. Hope you all are excited to see these features integrated by default in Chrome.

Now what you say? Will these features adds still more advantages to Chrome browser? Share what you feel. icon smile Chrome 9 Features Faster HTTPS Via TLS Extension! Cheers!!

Google Chrome 9 Build Started!

google chrome 9 build started1 Google Chrome 9 Build Started!

A week back Google released Chrome 7 stable version. Two weeks back Chrome 8 build started. What can you except more? Don’t you think Google Chromium team is tired? But Google says “we aren’t!“.

Google is back again. Oh! When they went back right? Yeah! Just two days back we wrote Chrome 8 first beta will be out next week. And we even got a news that Chrome 9 Build will start from November! What happened suddenly?

Here we got yet another Chromium version. First sightings of Chrome 9 are already here. Today Google moved their Chromium 8 tag to Chromium 9. Which indicated that Chrome 9 build started, though it may take as long as a couple of weeks before a dev channel build is released.

Chrome developers are currently working on the Chrome 8 beta which may go live as early as next week. This makes sense since the Google Chrome 7 beta has been promoted to the stable channel this week.

As you all know Google is working on its strategy on new Chrome version in every six weeks which cleared that we may see Chrome 9 by this year end or at least a beta version.

The stable version of Google Chrome 8 be available by the end of November, which means that Google Chrome 9 may be available by the end of the year, though that would be even faster than the new six-weeks development cycle Google recently switched to.

Chromium developer Jason Kersey hinted as before,

As part of our goal to make the 6 week release cycle feasible, we are working to keep developers time spent on each release branch as short as possible.  This allows for more feature and bug work on the trunk, and more coverage of the trunk with dev channels.  To achieve this, I’m working to shorten the beta cycle for this release as much as possible.

This hinted that Chromium 9 build will be started soon!

Well watch out this place for more info. We will be updating you every move of Chromium team!

As we said before, Google has started building Chrome 8 and as usual we can expect some new things being integrated. Chromium 8 initial build is still not having any changes as compared to last nightly build of Chrome 7.

But Chrome 7 first beta just included Instant search and Side tabs. There is no update that Google is going to integrate Google Cloud Print in Chrome 7. So we may get Google Cloud Print service enabled in Chrome 8.

Lets get ready for experiencing some amazing features getting integrated in Chrome browser. As expected Google will release Chrome 8 by this year end.
