Google Chrome team announced the arrival of Chrome 15.0.874.102 to the Stable Channel for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Chrome Frame.

"Chrome 15 contains some really great improvements including a new New Tab page, which is now more streamlined, so it's easier to access and organize your apps in different sections on the page. To add more apps to your New Tab page, click the Chrome Web Store icon," informs Google.

"Apps and extensions are now presented in a wall of images that's updated every time you visit the store. In addition, apps and extensions are easier to install--just hover over an image on the grid and click 'Add to Chrome'," added Google.

The Web Store also has a new look:

Adding Google said, "When you click on an app, extension or theme, you'll see a panel featuring screenshots, videos and other relevant information neatly organized into separate tabs. The store also includes a brand new reviews interface that links to the Google+ profile of each reviewer. (To protect your privacy, we made sure to anonymize any reviews that you previously submitted.)"

Also, joining Chrome 15 are a "bunch of new apps & games including: My Robot Nation, an app that lets you design your own robot and bring it to life with a 3D printer. There're plenty of new games to play, including The Godfather: Five Families and Fieldrunners," Google said.
