The stable release of Google Chrome 4.0 has been released, and it has brought with it several major enhancements.

The Google Chrome Blog today announced that the stable release of Google Chrome 4.0 is now available for download.  This is a major release, and brings at least two major new features that everyone should be excited about.

Extensions

At long last, Chrome now supports extensions!  For those of you unfamiliar with the concept, extensions enable your browser to do extra little jobs like the Google Voice extension we described the other day.  Currently Google is offering over 1,500 extensions in its extension gallery, but we do highly recommend you limit how many you install because the more you add, the slower your browser may run.  That being said, there are some really useful ones out there, so you should at least give them a look and see if any of them will ease your online life.

Bookmark Synching

Chrome now comes with a built-in ability to synchronize your bookmarks across all of your computers running Chrome.  So if you have a laptop and a desktop in your life, set up the sync and your bookmarks will be the same on both machines.  It can be done on as many machines as you have, so the headaches this will relieve for people with multiple computers in their lives will truly be welcome.

Here is a video explaining more of the features

If you’ve resisted trying out Google Chrome, now would be the time, we think you’ll be pleased.
