Chrome 22 Blog postThe newest version of the Google Chrome browser – Chrome 22 to be exact – has been released to the public, and gamers will be particularly pleased with the latest upgrades.

Specifically, there is now support for the Pointer Lock JavaScript API, otherwise known as a “mouse lock.” This allows for more accurate gaming while using a computer mouse by letting sites “capture” the mouse and not constraining it into the browser window.

This will give users much better control and fluidity in the cursor movement of a game in Chrome without worrying about the edges of the browser itself. Of course, this feature is also useful for training exercises, simulations, medical and scientific applications and much more.

Of course, there are plenty of other new features to Chrome 22 that will please users. This latest version comes with 24 bug fixes, along with enhancements to browsing with Windows 8. All in all, it’s a solid upgrade for every Chrome enthusiast, offering plenty of visual enhancements, but also a number of important security fixes. It’s just another reason why Chrome is the most popular browser out there.

And maybe you’re looking at celebrating the release of Chrome 22 with a new browser theme. Brand Thunder has a wide selection of Chrome 22-compatible themes, including a few like these:
