It was an accident that occurred on September 11, 2008. Google prematurely announced Google Chrome, the web browser from its stable available only for the Windows platform with Linux and Mac OS versions coming in late 2010.
‘To be the leader, you need to be the best’- is what all the various browsers presently believe in.
Internet Explorer 9 and Firefox 4 were officially released to the world within a difference of just eight days. Not to be sitting, Google announced the Beta Version of Google Chrome 11 on 22nd March 2011, the same day Mozilla released the final version of Firefox 4.
Exactly one month and 6 Days later, Google proudly announced the stable release and immediate availability for download of the Google Chrome 11 web browser for Windows, Linux, Macintosh and Chrome Frame platforms.
Apart from the new logo, a striking features of Google Chrome 11 is support for HTML5 speech input API. This means Chrome will interpret your ‘commands’ while you speak to the computer. No Flash, no plug-ins: it works well.

Also developers will be able to create websites with 3D effects using CSS thanks to support for GPU-accelerated 3D CSS. Initially introduced to the media via a comic book written by Scott McLeod, Google Chrome is described by many as a revolutionary browser introducing innovative functionalities.
Providing an excellent browsing experience, Google Chrome 11 is here to stay!
