Google Chrome 22 Offers 3D Gaming, 24 Bug Fixes

Downloadable immediately, Google's latest Chrome 22 Browser continues to add features aimed at helping the browser deliver more to its users.

The new Google Chrome Browser Version 22 includes a key improvement aimed at making 3D gaming enthusiasts happier – a Pointer Lock JavaScript API (also called Mouse Lock) that will allow more accurate gaming while using a computer mouse.

The upgrade was one of several features highlighting the latest stable release of Google Chrome, which was announced in a Sept. 25 post by Jason Kersey, technical program manager of the Google Chrome team, on the Google Chrome Releases blog page.

The latest Chrome 22 version also includes 24 bug fixes as well as Windows 8 enhancements and continuing improvements to the browser's interoperability with Apple's Retina screen technologies. The Retina screen support was first added in the previous version of Chrome, Version 21, back in August and is continuing to be polished, according to Kersey's post.
