Windows 7: Google Chrome 9.0 on the Horizon

Google Chrome 9.0 on the Horizon

Quote:
Forget Google Chrome 7.0 and 8.0, soon enough you will be able to test the ninth release of the open source browser.

Google is gearing up to deliver yet another major version of its open source browser this year, namely Chrome 9.0, or at least to get early adopters a taste.

After all, the Mountain View-based search giant aims to keep its promise of launching a new Stable version of Chrome every six weeks, per the new accelerated release model, designed to bring fresh features to users as fast and as frequently as possible.

In this regard, Google Chrome 9.0 is already on the horizon, with testers getting the first bits next month.

“We're 41 days away from the branch point for mstone:9 and we have 1236 open bugs, at the time of this note,” revealed Anthony Laforge, Chrome Technical Program Manager.

“Given our open and close rates we will need to punt approximately 956 bugs in order to be ready for 9.0 which as a rule of thumb means 4 out of every 5 bugs we have needs to be moved out.

“Once we hit branch point only ReleaseBlock-* bugs will be accepted (i.e. crash, security, and bugs to disable features).”

Google might not be able to wrap up Chrome 9.0 by the end of 2010, but early adopters are sure to get a Chromium 9.0 build in the near future, followed by a Dev and perhaps even a Beta release of Chrome 8.0’s successor.

The Moutain View-based search giant launched the Stable version of Chrome 7.0 On October 19th, hot in the heels of Chrome 8.0 graduating to the Dev channel.

“Part of this new release cycle is a better focus on scope management, and tightly managing what goes into our releases will help to make us more predictable.

“I appreciate your help and patience as we transition to this new system. I realize that it's not without some discomfort, but you guys have done a great job thus far, and I trust that when we are past these initial bumps the road will be smoother,” LaForge added in a note to developers working on Chrome.

Does Google still embed that hidden update service with Chrome? You know, the one that doesn't list as installed, runs as a service/startup item and stays even after Google Chrome is removed?

It is still there I believe. I personally have no issues with my browser constantly being up-to-date.

Also when I remove Google Chrome it also goes with it so I'm not to certain about that last part.

I was just wondering when i read this.

How do you know the service is there if its hidden? And how do you know it gets removed when you uninstall chrome if its hidden in the first place?

I am curious as to why they would hide it if its only there to update?

I've installed Chrome into XP several times and once into Windows 7. After removal of Chrome, the update service was left intact in each case. Those could have been rare occurrences, I don't know. But I did have to manually remove it from the registry, since it didn't list as an installed program in add/remove programs area.

I suppose the idea of an always on update check service, that also installs a scheduled task is a bit too much for my liking. Firefox does it all internally and is less intrusive/resource hungry about it.

Well, it doesn't ask you if you want to install the update service during the process of installing Chrome (at least it didn't the last time I used Chrome.) After install, the service appears in the task manager and seemed to be set to automatic. That and there is the scheduled task it creates.

The reason you know it is still there is that after removal of Google Chrome is that it still lists as an active running service in both the task manager and services area (services.msc.) All of its registry entries, plus install folder is still intact (Program files / Google / Update) If none of those are present, then it is gone

Since when is 3mb of ram resource hungry? Is that 3mb desperately needed for something else?

I'm running the chrome dev build and that updates extremely frequently. That's the idea and there's a bug reporting thingy.
I've been using it as default for months now and there has only been one short period when I had to go back to Firefox.
Chrome dev is now at version 8.0.552.11.
There is also a nightly build called Canary, not sure where that's up to.
At the moment I'm also trying FF Minefieldx64 with the x64 flash. that's pretty good but most of the addons are not yet compatible.
Minefield is a third faster than regular FF 3.6.11 but half as fast as chrome dev.

Guess I'm a browsy kind of guy

PS I think they'll end up like opera

Canary isn't a nightly build, its a branch between the Developers and the nightly build.
