Google Chrome 9 Released and Credits Reddit for Bug Fix

Chrome 9 Released

Google does not say much about their Chrome versions but they have recently released Chrome 9 now. They also credited Reddit.com for a critical bug fix.

Google discusses some new features released with Chrome 9: WebGL, Chrome Instant, and the Chrome Web Store.

WebGL will bring in hardware-accelerated 3D graphics support. They provided some demos of WebGL here.

Chrome Instant will bring Google Instant support to the Omnibox. This means that websites will begin loading as soon as you type the URL of a website.

Chrome web store will bring in new apps, including integrating TweetDeck. Although it's only available for US users for now.

Google thanks the Reddit /r/gaming community for helping uncover a critical bug in Chrome.

Google wrote:
Special thanks to the Reddit community, for playing so much of the game "Z-Type" that they uncovered a Chromium audio bug — see below!

The details surrounding the bug involve a race condition:

It's good to see one of the most prominent social network on the internet getting the attention it deserves. Recently they also just hit one billion page views for one single month.
