After a fairly lengthy beta phase, Google has released the finished version of Chrome 32 -- and it's one of the biggest updates to the browser in recent memory. Windows 8 users now get a Chrome OS-style interface (shown above), complete with its own windowing system and a web app launcher. Whichever platform you're running, you'll also get malware blocking and notifications when tabs are playing audio or using your webcam. Protective parents may also like a beta supervised users feature that lets them review their kids' browsing habits. Suffice it to say that there's more than enough here to warrant grabbing the Chrome update; visit the source links if you'd like the full release notes.
