While most users will not notice any large differences in the newest version of Chrome (that’s 5.0.360.0 if you’re counting), there are a couple of under the hood tweaks.
Most notably, the Bookmarks Manager now opens in a new tab versus a window as before. You can access the new manager through the menu system, or by typing chrome://bookmarks into the Omnibar.
Under the hood, there is now an option that will turn off the auto-translate feature. Two security holes have also been patched, details can be found on the Google Chrome Releases blog.
