Google has just released the first stable version of Chrome 6.0. Google Chrome 6.0.472.53 is now out of beta and deemed solid enough to sport the stable label.
The new version has a simplified user interface: there’s a single menu, the “go” button has been removed, the browser no longer shows “http://” in the address bar, the bookmark button has been moved to the right and the toolbar has a new color scheme.
Chrome 6 adds support for form autofill and you can now synchronize autofill data, extensions and all their settings. Extension sync is probably the coolest new feature in Chrome 6 because you can take your extensions with you, not matter what computer your are using.
Some other changes:
* Chrome has a new shortcut for toggling the bookmarks bar (Ctrl+Shift+B)
* if you mouse over a link to a page that has a long URL, Chrome will show the entire address in the status bar after about 3 seconds;
* Chrome’s extension manager (chrome://extensions/) links to the extension gallery pages.
