Chromium 15 final released with fancy New Tab page, extended menu and more
Chromium web-browser 15 stable has been released with numerous bug fixes and exciting new features.
What is new in Chromium 15?

Navigating between visited sites and installed applications can be done now by clicking on the bottom buttons or on the both-ways navigation bar
- fancy effect when deleting a new site from the "Most visited"
- new additions in the Preferences Menu, Extensions, that clearly displays your installed extensions (here you can enable/disable extensions, allow in incognito or tweak them)
