The Google browser is evolving at fast pace, and this week Chrome was updated to version 188.8.131.52. A developer release, Google Chrome 184.108.40.206 comes in less than a week since the previous version was made available offering not only new features, but also fixes for bugs that survived Build 220.127.116.11
. However, the latest variant of Google Chrome still has problems when it comes down to playing nice with the Beta release of Windows 7.
“Windows 7 users will experience issues importing favorites from IE and setting Chrome as the default browser,” revealed Anthony Laforge
, PMP, Chrome program manager, when enumerating the known issues of the 18.104.22.168 release. With Microsoft boasting millions of installations of Windows 7 Beta, Google will have to step up its game and tailor its browser to the next iteration of the Windows client, even if to the pre-release builds of the platform.
At the same time, whatever issues Chrome has integrating with the 32-bit version of Windows 7 Beta Build 7000, the 64-bit flavor of the operating system manages to top. And it looks like Google will still be a while before making Chrome integrate seamlessly with Windows 7. Still, the Mountain View-search giant is making consistent headway in the development of Chrome 2.0, having added a variety of new features.
