Google Android and Google Chrome Updates: 'Chrome 28' For Windows Now Out Of Beta; Web Rendering Engine Blink Available

The latest Google Android and Google Chrome updates have been released.

According to a report from IT Pro Portal regarding the latest Google Android and Google Chrome updates, the internet giant has finally launched the Chrome 28 for Windows. In addition, there was an update made to Chrome for Google Android OS including some tweaks to the translation features.

This week, the latest version of Google Chrome was pushed out of the beta testing, and it comes with a completelely revamped pop-up featuring text and images. Also, those using the Google Chrome 28 can now respond to emails without leaving the current window.

The latest Google Chrome updates offer huge changes for the notifications. For instance, it is now possible to open all at once the warnings and system messages the user received through the notification center. Furthermore, if a Google Chrome user for Windows feels like wanting to concentrate on work, it is now a lot easier to disable pop-ups.

According to the report, rich notifications from Google Chrome are now available for all the Windows users while the Mac update is arriving very soon, as the internet company said.

Furthermore, the release of this Google Chrome update also makes the browser compatible with Blink, which is a "new web rendering engine that replaced Webkit."

Adam Barth, a Google Software Engineer, made a statement regarding the release of its new open-source rendering engine as a replacement for Webkit. He said, "This was not an easy decision," Barth writes. "We know that the introduction of a new rendering engine can have significant implications for the Web. Nevertheless, we believe that having multiple rendering engines-similar to having multiple browsers-will spur innovation and over time improve the health of the entire open web ecosystem."

Meanwhile, the Chrome for Google Android, the operating system of the internet firm for mobile, was also able to get an update, specifically the addition of Google Translate, which was previously available only as a standalone application.

However, Google Translate is now made available for the mobile browser, the Chrome for Android, to provide easier access. With this, Chrome will now automatically offer to translate the site into your native tongue, similar to what it does for the desktop version of Google Chrome.

Furthermore, Google Android and Google Chrome updates were received by tablet devices as well, receiving a boost to full-screen support. For instance, if the user start scrolling, the browser will hide the top toolbar so there will be more room for internet content.
