Chrome Gets 'Full Product' Status in 100 Days

Lora Bentley

Three and a half months after Google first released Chrome, the browser is leaving beta. InformationWeek reported Thursday that Google has released Chrome 1.0.

 

Writer Thomas Claburn says the breakneck speed with which the browser has moved through the stages of development indicates Chrome's strategic importance within the company. After all, Gmail has been languishing in beta for four years or more. "Google needs a browser of its own, so it isn't dependent on the goodwill of Apple, Microsoft, or Mozilla for access to its users," he says.

 

According to PC Magazine, Google product management VP Sundar Pichai said in a blog post that the company's "goals for stability and performance have been met." But that doesn't mean the developers are finished for good, of course. Chrome is very much "a work in progress," the story says. Chrome's extension program is still to come, as are RSS support and form autofill capabilities.
