Google accelerates Chrome releases

Bookmark and Share

Google plans to double the frequency of new releases of its Chrome browser. At the moment the search company issues a new stable version of the browser every three months, but a new build will now appear every six weeks.

Google hopes this will take the strain off developers because if a new feature isn’t quite ready for one release, it can wait for the next release in just a few weeks time.

This is a predictable strategy for Google which usually keeps products in beta for an extended period to given them time to evolve online.

Chrome recently took over from Apple’s Safari as third most popular Internet browser in the US, and Google is also gaining ground over Apple with its Android mobile phone operating system.

According to Strategy Analytics, Apple’s share of the mobile phone market fell to 14.1% in June compared with 16% in the first quarter of 2010.
