Google rolls out Chrome’s new translation and privacy features

Google has added new privacy and translation features to the stable version of its Chrome browser.

The new beta version of Chrome was released on March 2 with its new automatic translation feature which instantly changes web pages that are in a different language to your primary setting, without the need for browser extensions or plug-ins.

According to Google the translation feature “works across 52 languages and can automatically detect and translate entire websites in less than a second”.

New privacy features have also been added to the browser. Chrome users are now able to manage “cookies, images, JavaScript, plug-ins and pop-ups on a site-by-site basis”.

Additionally, in terms of privacy, Google says it can now remove the unique ID from Google Update, while still being able to track the number of active users and provide them with update information.
