Chrome 17.0 is the latest version of Google’s web browser. Chrome 17.0 was predated by various other versions of the browser, which was originally released by Google On September 2, 2008 as a beta version. Belonging to one of the worldwide leaders of internet technology, Chrome 17.0 provides one of the most efficient internet experiences, both for casual browsers and technology geeks alike.
Google allows its Chrome users to create desktop shortcuts which open Chrome applications in the browser. Google ‘s Chrome Web Store is a directory that includes all of its web applications. Chrome 17.0 is home to over 11,500 extensions, ranging from “The Independent” to “FIFA”. In addition to applications and extensions, Chrome users can also install themes that alter the appearance of the browser itself. Google Chrome also includes a built in language translator, which currently consists of 52 languages, with more promised to be included in the future.
Google Chrome 17.0 is offered on all major operating systems. The supported systems include Windows XP, Vista and 7, Mac OS, and Ubuntu. Early in 2012, Google Chrome overtook Mozilla Firefox as the second most popular web browser, behind only Microsoft’s omnipresent Internet Explorer. Chrome has received almost entirely positive reviews from its users and hopes to use usage data and user surveys to create an even more user-friendly product in the future. If future versions of Google’s internet browser follow the same path of innovation as Chrome 17.0, users of Chrome can expect an even more pleasant internet browsing experience than they have already grown accustomed to.
