Today Google released version 25 of Chrome for Windows, Mac, and Linux. The previous version, Chrome 24, was largely a stability update but Chrome 25 brings a bag of new goodies to the table. Some of these include voice recognition support with the new Web Search API and also blocking silent extension installation.
Let’s talk a little bit about something that has changed in Chrome 25. On Chrome 24 some extensions were installed without the users knowledge and this feature was “widely abused by third party developers” according to sources at Google. Google also told Windows application developers that they should ask users to install Chrome extensions from within the browser using the inline installation.
If your a Chrome user definitely go update your version of Chrome to the new version. The new features are really nice and in my opinion it now runs a little faster than it did before I updated it. Go ahead and let us know what you think of the update in the comments guys we’d really appreciate it. You can update to the latest release using the browser’s built-in silent updater or download it directly from the link below.
