Google Adds Translation and Privacy Features to Chrome

March 3rd, 2010 posted by · No Comments

Google is working its magic this week updating their Chrome browser by adding some new features and enhancing privacy. One of the new things you can do is automatically translate websites to your preferred language if they happen to be written in anything other than English, and vice versa depending on what you speak. If you happen to visit a site based in China, for example, a prompt will come up asking if you wish to translate the page.

Because many of my readers tend to be outside North America, this should come in handy for many of them who visit the blog.

Google also rolled out enhanced privacy options to secure your browsing habits. Similar to what Firefox has already let you do, Chrome now allows you to manage cookies, plug-ins, pop-ups, etc.

Hopefully these new additions don’t slow things down too much. That’s one of the reasons I use Chrome when performing multiple tasks online — the speed. I’m still a big supporter of Firefox, but it can lag every now and then when you have many tabs open. Generally, I have no fewer than 10 tabs open at once during a normal work day.

More on Google’s additions are available on their blog.
