Google have just announced a finished version of Chrome 8. This final, stable release adds a new built in PDF viewer that, like Apple’s browser Safari negates the need to use a supporting application.
Google have sandboxed the application to prevent dodgy PDF files from compromising the browser and posing security threats to the user’s system. Developers have also said that Chrome 8 should have the underlaying framework for the Chrome Web Store. Google’s portal will allow users to shop for web based applications, such as HTML productivity tools and even Flash games without having to visit multiple sites. This store access has yet to be enabled however.
Chrome 8 is now available for download over here for all major operating systems, let us know you findings.
