Google Chrome 14 build 14.0.835.35 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome Frame released to the Beta channel as of today August 11, announced Jason Kersey, Google Chrome.

The latest beta release brings big improvements to Chrome's web platform capabilities, enabling developers to build more powerful and more immersive apps and games for the web.

First, "we're pleased to announce the integration of Native Client into Chrome, that allows C and C++ code to be seamlessly executed inside the browser with security restrictions similar to JavaScript.

Native Client apps use Pepper, a set of interfaces that provide C and C++ bindings to the capabilities of HTML5. As a result, developers can now leverage their native code libraries and expertise to deliver portable, high performance web apps," explains Chris Rogers, Software Engineer.

Another cool feature is the "Web Audio API, a new JavaScript API offering advanced audio capabilities. The Web Audio API supports audio effects such as room simulation and spatialization, allowing web developers to create even more interactive experiences and games," Rogers said.

Here's a complete list of features in Chrome 14 build 14.0.835.35:

  • Initial release of Native Client
  • Web Audio API
  • Additional Mac OS X Lion feature support
  • Sync Encryption for all data
  • Print Preview on Mac
  • Experimental Web Request extension API
  • Experimental Content Settings extension API

JavaScript Processing sample: (Viewale only in Chrome)

"Here are some more examples you can play with, but we're looking forward to seeing what other people build!"
