Chrome gets automatic translation

A new beta version of Chrome, the internet browser from Google, has been released sporting new features including automatic translation.

A report by The Guardian says the new version of Chrome includes more privacy controls and offers more control over images, JavaScript, plug-ins and pop-ups.

One of the most useful new features is a translation service which Google says allows for instant machine translation of web pages without the need for any browser extensions or plug-ins.

Data released by Net Applications revealed that during February Chrome grew its share of the browser market by 0.4 per cent and remained the world’s third most popular browser, with a 5.61 per cent share of the market.

Internet Explorer with its 61.58 per cent share stayed in first place, followed by Firefox with its 24.23 per cent share.

More details on the new version of Chrome can be found on the company’s official blog.
