Owners of Mac computers now have their very own stable release of Google’s Chrome web browser, offering a host of features including full-screen mode, easy bookmark management and the ability to synchronise browser preferences across computers. You can download Google Chrome for Mac from the Chrome website, if you have Mac OS X 10.5 or later, with it running on an Intel CPU.
“Today, I’m happy to announce that Google Chrome for Mac is being promoted out of beta to our stable channel,” said Mike Smith, product manager of the Google Chrome Team in a blog post. “We believe that it provides not only the stability, performance and polish that every Mac user expects, but also a seamless native Mac application experience that Mac users will feel instantly at home with.”
Apple fans don’t only get their own stable version of Google Chrome, but they also get a chance to boast about their favourite tech company knocking Microsoft off its pedestal as the most valued tech company. According to the BBC, Apple’s total market value yesterday was $222 billion, while Microsoft’s topped out at $219 billion. Microsoft is still the more profitable of the two giants though. Their most recent annual net profit was $14.6 billion, compared to Cupertino’s $5.7 billion.
