Google Chrome now has a market share of 11% in global browser usage map, and it is expected to improve 12-13% with the launch Chrome 10.
Major features of Google Chrome 10:
Usually it’s difficult to find the application settings in any web browser. Chrome 10 takes the browser settings to a new Tab where there is a search box that let you find all settings in a matter of time. I just entered privacy in the box, and all related settings come up as shown above.

Sandboxing of browser tabs and plugins is a security feature introduced in Google Chrome 10. It considers each tab as different processes, so in case if there is a security issue in one tab. It won’t affect the other tabs. Google Chrome 10 comes with inbuilt Flash and PDF support. These two plugins are also sandboxed and linked to Google update service to make sure the plugins are updated and secure.
