chrome 8.0.555.0 instant search option

Google Chromium team is working really hard towards the future releases on Chrome browser. Just a week back we got next big release Chrome 7’s first ever stable beta, which indicated just a fews days to go for final Chrome 7.

Do you Google started relaxing for a while? Nope! Google doesn’t like relaxing. As soon as we got the beta version of Chrome 7, Chromium team moved step ahead towards Chrome . Yes, they really.

On October 9th Chromium team released the first ever build version under Chromium 8 tag. Recently Chromium team also delivered dev version of Chrome 8. Well as expected some new features has been integrated as lab features.

Chrome 7 got Instant search integrated in it. Many hardcore Chrome 8 users like me thought that Chromium team is taking off Google Instant Search in Chrome 8. But chromium team is trying to add this feature as user friendly. Google Instant search is getting integrated in settings/options tab as shown in above image.

Tech Note: As of now Chrome 8 build version has this feature. Chrome 8 dev version is yet to get it!

Chromium team is working really hard towards GPU Acceleration which every browser like Firefox 4,Internet Explorer 9, Opera 10.70 and Safari are looking forward to.
#3. Print Preview

One of the missing feature from Chrome 1 to 7 is getting integrated in Chrome 8. Till Chrome 7 their was no print preview option. Now Google chromium team added in-tab preview of a print operation as a lab feature.

Well these are the latest features added by Chromium team to Chrome 8 in just 6 days! There are many features to come out of Chrome browser.

Watch out this space for more updates!

    I have been using Chrome 8 since it released, but I don't really make much use of instant search.

      Any reason for not using instant search Justin?

      Thanks for sharing your view 🙂

        It doesn't really show ever what I was looking for, I also type 90 words a minute and usually can type my phrase and hit enter before it even shows results.

        1. Vinay Gowda says:

          But I feel sometimes it shows what we are searching before we stop writing that phrase buddy. I agree for long phrase Instant search is not a good option.

          1. Justin Germino says:

            From my experience the instant search results doesn't ever show what I was looking for, just distractions.

            Buddy don't you think sometimes you will get more things than you searching? 🙂

    When are they ever going to release a STABLE version? I'm tired of wasting my bandwidth, downloading chrome versions that just don't work on my vista system :-(. I'm stick stuck @ version 4.0.266.0.

    1. Vinay Gowda says:

      Buddy Chrome 6 is a stable version. In few days Chrome 7 stable will b out. I do agree that we need to download many updates now and then!

      1. Udegbunam Chukwudi says:

        Please any ideas as to where I can download an offline installation of Chrome 6 Stable Version? My internet connection tends to fluctuate so the online installation hangs most times :-(.

        1. Vinay Gowda says:

          Never tried Offline installer buddy. Well I think you can get it in Torrentz.com 🙂

          1. Udegbunam Chukwudi says:

            I've found it @ tipsfromgeek.com/2010/09/download-google-chrome-6-stable-version-offline-installer.html. Unfortunately it refuses to install. Aaaargh! Looks like it's got issues with 32 bit Vista 🙁

  7. Shabnam Sultan says:

    1. Vinay Gowda says:

    1. Vinay Gowda says:
