Download Chrome 23 And Get Optimized GPU Acceleration And “Do Not Track”

The Stable version of Chrome 23 has already been announced by Google. The update includes some interesting additions and bug fixes. There are a few nice features that come along with this upgrade. For example, the load on your system’s CPU will be consistently reduced with new support for GPU-accelerated video decoding. And considering that the video card needs less power than the processor, this can lead to an extended battery life (Google claims that it can be extended with up to 25%), in case you have a laptop or tablet.

Also, you can access sites that require permissions more easily as the browser features a page icon in the address bar which allows you to view the current permission and change it (you don’t need to search through the Settings dialog anymore. Google Chrome 23 also features a new “do not track” option, though the company itself admits that the option is not always effective and they will further work to improve it.

The company has announced that the Dev version of Chrome has been updated to 24.0.1312.5 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome Frame. This particular release is not as intriguing because it only brings some minor optimizations and bug fixes.

If you already have Google Chrome installed on your system, then the auto-updating feature will provide you the new version. However, if you don’t have the browser yet, you can get Chrome 23 using this link.
