Google Releases New Stable and Beta Chrome Builds

Keeping the Chrome crowd well-stocked on new releases, Google has made available a couple of versions of its browser, the 16.0.912.75 (Stable channel) and 17.0.963.26 (Beta channel).

The new Chrome 16 build is a security update which comes to fix three vulnerabilities rated 'High', while the first Chrome 17 release brings quite a few fresh goodies like New Extensions APIs, Omnibox Prerendering (the browser will load a website in the background while you type in the URL), enhanced download protection, and a few tweaks.

Both Chrome 16.0.912.75 and 17.0.963.26 are available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux and can be downloaded via this page.

I was hoping that they put back the Side Tabs on about:flags... I R sad panda and I'll continue to use Opera/FF, can't really live without Side Tabs and the addon for Chrome sucks.

Installed the latest Canary build (18.0.997.0) and still no Side Tabs, unfortunately. Maybe someday...
