"Google has released its first major version update to the Chrome browser in 2011, with the release of Chrome 9. The new browser has been in beta since the beginning of the year.

"With Chrome 9, Google is debuting a trio of new features to the stable version of their Web browser including, WebGL, Chrome Instant, and the Chrome Web Store. Chrome 9 also provides nine security fixes, only two of which have been labeled by Google as having high impact.

"With WebGL, Google is aiming to take advantage of graphics hardware present on many PCs. WebGL enables the browser to deliver hardware accelerated 3D graphics for a new generation of Web applications. Among the test cases that Google has built to demonstrate the power of WebGL is their new Body Browser for viewing a 3D model of the human body."
