Google Chrome 9 Build Starts From November

google chrome 9 build starts on november

We think no one can stop Google! The pace they are in now, we feel Google Chrome will soon become strongest competitor for Firefox and Internet Explorer in few months down the line.

Yesterday Google released first ever stable version of Chrome 7 browser. Chrome 7 is mainly updated for Mac and Linux users and the only change we saw in windows was, they have added more security for cookies.

Release of Chrome 7 stable yesterday confirmed that Google is working really hard towards Chrome browser under Chromium tag. Its not done. You wondering what about Chrome 8?

Well as soon as Chrome 7 hit beta version Google changed they Chromium 7 track to Chromium 8 which will end up given another best browser Chrome 8. There are many features being tested in Chrome 8 under Lab feature.

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

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.

    I like that Chrome updates so frequently, they will rapidly gain market share. There are still websites that only work on IE and not Firefox, I found one today. Didn't test it on Chrome though.

      Can you share which is that website buddy?

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts 🙂

        It is a website for Travel Agents, a section of On another note, it was only recently that worked on Firefox, and my wife could never visit the site from Ubuntu Linux Firefox due to lacking MS Active X.

        While we were on Ubuntu, we found there were still so many sites that require microsoft Active X and there is no Active X for Ubuntu at least back on Hardy Heron, haven't tested the 10.10 release

        1. Vinay Gowda says:

          Well I do accept with you Justin. Many websites still uses some or other MS tools and can be run only on MS OS. Hope we will get a portability between MS and other OS.

    Justin, they're indeed growing rapidly. I was surprised when i saw that it has marketshare of 18% within short period. Let's wish they have good addon support from Chrome 9 just like FF has.

    1. Vinay Gowda says:

      Yeah Joel! Justin is right and I even agree with you.Chrome will be real tough competitor for other browsers 🙂

    2. Justin Germino says:

      Thanks Joel, since your comment came after mine and wasn't a reply I didn't see it. I am exclusively using Chrome as my default browser now, only 2 major features in Firefox I still like.

      1) Firebug is still more featured than Firebug lite or "Inspect Element" in Chrome (for CSS/HTML developers)

      2) The "View Background Image" in the right click was so important for me to strip out header images hidden in CSS, in Chrome I can't see the image files even with inspect element on some of my own sites.

    Chrome always coming with new features and I think in future Chrome will hold most of the market share.

    1. Vinay Gowda says:

      Well the market share of Chrome is growing very rapidly and will surely hit milestone sooner than IE and FF Madav 🙂

      Let's hope for the best. Thanks for sharing your thoughts buddy!

    Chrome's Development team Rocks. They are putting in so much efforts to release each version of Chrome in a very short span of time.

    After I have started using Chrome I have never used other browser anymore. Of course IE gave me the worst experience in browsing.

  9. TechChunks says:

    I'll probably wait them to reach version 9. I hear they have some really exciting features in the pipeline…
