Google Chrome, Google’s new web browser, just reached version 20.0.1132.47 for the Mac. The new version, a 40.7 megabyte download, offers the following changes:
- Disables some of Chrome’s GPU acceleration features on Mac hardware containing the Intel HD 4000 graphics chip (e.g. the new Macbook Air notebooks), in order to prevent a resource leak which is causing a kernel panic on that hardware. This is a temporary change while we work on fixing the root cause of the issue.
Google Chrome 20.0.1132.47 requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.5 or later to install and run.
If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.
