Google Chrome received an update Wednesday that has the potential to make your everyday web browsing faster and more secure. The first new Chrome feature was being beta tested for a while, but it’s now available to everyone. The second addition improves security by warning you about suspicious executable and .msi files.Now when you type inside Chrome’s omnibox (basically the address bar) Chrome will start to pre-render the sites Google feels you will visit. For example, if you begin to type “recipes,” a URL for your favorite recipe site will pop up. Once you click on it, the page will load noticeably faster.

The security update makes sure executable files are on a whitelist determined by Google. If it isn’t, you’ll be warned before starting the download.

You can download the update at any time. To do that, all you have to do is click on the wrench icon and click on “about Google Chrome.”
