Google has finally released the first stable version for Linux and Mac users. Initially, Beta versions of both the operating systems were available for download since December, but the number of bugs and instability that the beta version brought with it almost made it impossible for the browsers to be used. And for those, who have been keeping of track of these updates must be knowing how incomplete, unpredictable and buggy the browser was nearly a year ago.
The stable versions are fully featured, all-purpose browsers that come with a host of other features:
- Improved plugin support, extensions and desktop functionality.
- Bookmark and browser preference sync across multiple browsers.
- Fully incorporated HTML5 features.

Apart from the above mentioned features, google chrome has also made measurable amount of improvement in speed, security and performance. In short, the stable release for Linux and Mac OS users now has all those features available, as with windows users. And Flash player integration is expected to be available in the next release of the browser.
If you are already using any of the Beta releases of the browser on your Mac OS or Linux, your browsers will be automatically updated to this stable version soon. Don’t want to wait? Download it now – for Mac | for Linux.
