Google releases stable version of its latest beta version of Google Chrome. It is Google Chrome 5.0. This stable version is also compatible to run on Macintosh and Linux platform. It was just the beta version available for Mac and Linux. Of course the beta version is unstable where some features are still under development.

Google Chrome 5.0 is available with lots of new features such as browser setting, bookmark synchronization across multiple computers and more. Browser setting is now available in more comprehensive options and features. Brand new settings are available such as preferred language and page zoom. Meanwhile, bookmark synchronization works like sync weaver in Mozilla Firefox.

Google Chrome 5.0 is also enriched with HTML 5.0 features such as drag and drop, geolocation and web sockets. It will work optimally in sites which support HTML 5. Drag and drop will allow users to upload, download as well as moving files easily by dragging and dropping the desired files. Thus geolocation works best in maps applications such as Google maps.

Nevertheless, Google Chrome 5.0 is already integrating Adobe flash player to support sites based on the previous HTML version.

More Sites to Support HTML 5 Including Facebook

Thursday, May 27, 2010

After some big players like Google Youtube, Apple iPad and iPhone declared to comply with HTML 5, Facebook moves to follow the step. And likely much more players will follow to support the new HTML 5 platform. HTML 5 is expected to move many different browser platforms to have a common basic standard. So that they will perform same responds in recognizing internet pages.

HTML 5 introduces many changes and additions to the previous version HTML 4.01. There are new tags and removal of some tags for mark up language, new application programming interfaces ( API ), faster user connection using peer to peer -without sacrificing much bandwidth cpu and memory consumption- and more common standard for different browser platforms.

Among all changes, new video tag and audio tag are the most popular development. It eliminates the requirement of flash plug in such as Adobe Flash, Microsoft Silverlight and even Sun Micro Java FX to playback online video. Such those flash applications are used widely as many platform require those flash applications for playing videos, drag and drop applications and more.

Yet the remaining problem is the world wide web consortium (W3C) as the founding father of HTML 5 has not reached deal yet regarding the common video format should be supported in the video tag. Last of all, HTML 5 would be much more attractive since it does not require any third party flash plug in as it handles on its audio video tag itself.
