Google Chrome update brings in Automatic Translation

Google Chrome was updated to version 4.1.249.1021 . This new version allows users to get a feel of Chrome 5 before actually jumping to it. Chrome 5 is still in development therefore Google threw in an update to Chrome Beta Build so that users could try Chrome 5 features.

The new features include :-

* Automatic translation of web pages – If a user is viewing a web page which is in a language different from the one preferred by the user, then the user would have the option of translating the page using Google Translate. Google says it’s a step towards making “all the world’s information universally accessible in an easy, frictionless way.”

* A Privacy option has been added to the Chrome options dialog which offers the user the feature to control whether websites can load images, use JavaScript , use plug-ins or store cookies. You can access this by going to Options > Under the Hood > Privacy .
