Google Chrome 5.0.372.0 Beta available for Ubuntu

Google has announced the release of a new update to Google Chrome in the Beta channel. Google Chrome 5.0.372.0 Beta has been pushed for Linux users ahead of the Windows and Mac builds in order to address an SSL issue. The biggest, new feature in Google Chrome 5.0.342.7 Beta, apart from the usual array of bug fixes, is the automatic translation tool, which landed on Windows a couple of weeks ago.

The big, new feature in the Google Chrome 5.0.372.0 Beta is the automatic translation. When Chrome detects a web page written in a language different from the one set in Chrome's options, the browser offers to translate the page. The tool makes use of Google's extensive machine translation technologies used in Google Translate and other tools.
