Hello Chrome 12, good-bye Google Gears

Google updated its stable browser channel today, pushing Chrome 12 to its widest base of users. Chrome 12 stable (download for Windows | Mac | Linux) doesn't contain any surprises from the Chrome 12 beta that was released a month ago, but it does bring more hardware acceleration support and better browsing security. It also marks the end of public support for Google Gears, the offline Web app tool.
The security improvements are the biggest change in version 12. In addition to 14 security holes getting patched, including five marked high priority, Google has expanded its "Safe Browsing" technology to include malicious file protection. It won't block all malicious file downloads, but it does do a better job of examining your downloads before they reach your hard drive. In the blog post announcing the new Chrome release, Google was careful to address privacy concerns and point out that the enhancements don't track which sites you've been downloading files from.
Another security change adds the user's ability to delete Flash cookies. This makes sense, given that Flash has come baked into Chrome for some time.

Dell to Launch a Windows 7 based 10-inch Tablet

At a conference February 8, Dell announced the impending launch of its Windows 7 based tablet. This tablet, as CNETreports, is going to be 10-inches in size -- which is twice the size of a certain 5-inch "Tablet" Dell had tried to peddle consumers with before. This tab doesn't seem like a direct jab fun-filled devices like the iPad but will be focused to serve the needs of corporate users. 
The Windows 7 powered "Business Tablet" will be powered by an unspecified Intel processor; we wonder whether it will be the netbook-like Intel Atom grade fitted in the HP Slate 500, or the faster Core i3/i5 ULV variety as seen on the Eee Slate EP121.

This tablet will be made available by the middle of the year. Currently, in the country, MSI's WindPad 100W is a Windows 7 powered tablet that's already officially selling.

On the note of tablets, we'll also see what HP has up their sleeves as they announce the new WebOS based devices (possibly tablets) a little after midnight today.
