As Eldmannen has already noted (HERE) Google have released Chrome version 7.0.517.41 as a stable release, six days after releasing the same version as a Beta.

In this stable release, we’ve focused primarily on hundreds of bug fixes. We’ve also included a few other things that may be of interest to developers, such as full AppleScript support on Mac OS X for UI automation and implementation of the HTML5 parsing algorithm, the File API, and directory upload (via <input type="file" webkitdirectory>). Also, if you choose to block sites from setting any data in your browser’s content settings for cookies, you can now use a new dialog for managing blocked cookies in bulk.

I know. Version 8.0.552.5 was released to the Dev (development) channel over a week ago.

And the stable version has just been re-released as a new build, now up to 7.0.517.43

Wonder why they are bumping the major version numbers up so fast?

Is it so they can get to version 9 whilst Internet Explorer 9 is still in Beta? :huh:

Something like that, I'd think. Seems like they're trying to make it look like a much more mature program than it really is.
