So aside from gaining market share, Google Chrome which is currently in beta 4 is also busy improving itself. Â It’s latest feature as announced by the Google Chrome blog is a tool for translating a foreign language webpage plus additional privacy settings to make your browsing experience even safer.
Google Chrome Beta’s translate feature now sits Â on top of every webpage which are in a language other than your own preferred language setting. Â All you need to do is to click on the translate button and Chrome will translate the webpage into your preferred language. This is very useful if you visit a foreign website often. Now, you don’t have to load Google’s translation page – http://translate.google.com on another browser tab, paste the URL of the webpage you want to translate to read the translated text.
If you’re a blogger or writer who source your materials from international sites, specifically those written in languages other than English or your own native language, this feature is also useful. If you noticed when you use Google’s translation tool, the translated webpage takes a new URL. If you copy and paste that on your site and somebody clicks it, the link will return an error page.
With the new Google Chrome feature, the translation happens right on on the browser tab where you load the webpage in foreign language. The URL does not change, so you can copy and paste it to link to your site.
With these enhancements, Google is really prepping up its web browser to become a major contender in the web browser market.
