Chrome Browser Beta Now Supports C, C++ Apps
The latest beta of Google's Chrome browser adds support for apps written in C and C++.
Thursday Google Chrome software engineer Chris Rogers said that the latest beta channel release (14.0.835.35) brings big improvements to the popular browser.
Thursday Google also made changes on the Chrome 15 Dev front as well with the release of v15.0.849.0. Just on the visuals alone, the initial presentation has changed once a New Tab is opened, moving each section (Most Visited, Apps, Bookmarks etc) to their own sliding "window" without creating a new tab. App icons and website preview icons are now much larger, presenting the feeling of a mobile OS overall rather than a mere web browser. If anything, the new "interface" begs for touch-based input.
The new release also overhauls the Print Preview panel for improved speed and usability, and also features additional enhancements when using the browser on OS X Lion. But mainly this release is focused on stability and performance.
