Happy “Belated” Birthday, Chrome. Google Chrome has turned 1 on September 2, 2009. Since the launched, Chrome has announced numerous new features like side-by-side view, form autofill, and the ability to remove items from the New Tab page. However, there are still plenty of things need to do from Google in terms of features and extensions. Chrome is made available to you in Linux, Mac and Windows platform as of today.

Finally, Google has taking the beta label off of Gmail as well as Google Calendar, Google Docs, and GTalk for both enterprise and consumer versions. Although the beta tags is removed, you are be able to bring it back in Gmail by enabling the “Back to Beta” setting.

However, this doesn’t bother me because no free lunch in this world as we all use Gmail service for free. Also, I used Google Apps Standard Edition for personal use (own domain).
