Google Chrome Beta Release Gets Privacy, Language Translation

Microsoft Buyout Rumors: Twitter - Yahoo

The Google Chrome Blog has announced a new beta edition of Chrome, Google’s browser, which includes innovative language translation options and a new set of privacy tools.  The machine translation comes as part of Google’s popular Web Monkey translation engine for the Web while the new privacy tools are what many users have said Chrome should have had from the get-go.

eWeek says that the new updates come when Chrome has reached 5.6% of the browser market share.  The polyglot language options for Chrome are very unique and particularly useful, probably making Chrome the easiest of the browsers to use with multi-lingual translation.

The browser simply knows your base language setting and when a site is loaded that is in a different language, it automatically offers a button to translate.  Simple and effective.

The privacy additions are something which PCWorld agrees are a long time coming.  They allow site-specific privacy settings for JavaScript, cookies, plug-ins, pop-ups, and more.  The new privacy options are available only in the Windows SP2/vista versions of Chrome, but are definitely a step in the right direction.

These latest updates to Chrome are available in the Chrome Beta channel.
