Local Shared Objects
A few days ago Google released Chrome 12. If you use Chrome, odds are you have it by now.
If you don’t have chrome, download it, it’s the best browser out there.
To take a peek at some of the new functionality in place, check out Shaun the Sheep.
In the new browser we have:
- Safe Browsing enhancements (protecting you from malware and phishing sites, supposedly this is done without Google knowing the URLs you visit)
- Ability to delete Flash LSO (Local Shared Objects) — essentially Flash cookies which, until now, have only been managed from Adobe’s online settings application
- Hardware Accelerated 3D CSS (technically it was available before, but disabled by default)
