Google Chrome 36.0 Beta Out

Google had just recently released Google Chrome 36 Beta version and it comes with several new developer features to help make richer, more compelling web content and apps, especially for mobile devices. Some of the new mouth watering features includes element.animate(), HTML Imports, Object.observe() and an improved throttled async touchmove model.

Other updates in this release

  • Chrome no longer sends touchcancel on touch scroll, improving compatibility with other browsers and making it possible to add touch UI effects like pull-to-refresh without re-implementing scrolling and fling physics in JavaScript.
  • Some CSS properties such as scrollTop and offsetHeight will now return fractional values in browser-zoom situations.
  • The new WOFF 2.0 Web Font compression format offers a 30% average gain over WOFF 1.0 (up to 50%+ in some cases).
  • DevTools now faithfully emulates touch with mouse, allowing you to test touch interactions on Chrome for Android using the mobile emulation feature of DevTools.
  • Unprefixed CSS Transforms enables rich web content by allowing elements to be transformed in two-dimensional or three-dimensional space.
