Chrome 7 gets Applescript, "hundreds" of bugfixes

Google has released a new stable build of the free Chrome browser, v7.0.517.41 for the Mac, including full Applescript support for UI automation and an updated HTML5 parsing algorithm. "Hundreds" of bugs were fixed, according to the developer blog, and users now have a new dialog for managing blocked cookies en masse.

This release fixes a total of 826 bugs across all supported platforms, according to Google's "issues" tracker. The team have also now published the File API, and added support for directory upload.

Product Manager Jeff Chang added that regular stable releases of Chrome should come every six weeks henceforth, in the spirit of getting fixes and improvements into users' hands as fast as possible. Among the key bugs fixed in this release are a reproducible crash with forms and memory corruption with animated GIFs.
