Earlier Google was planning of taking Google Chrome out of Beta. Now, its official. Google Chrome has finally left Beta and has released v1.0. 

Official Google Blog has the following to say

We have removed the beta label as our goals for stability and performance have been met but our work is far from done. We are working to add some common browser features such as form autofill and RSS support in the near future. We are also developing an extensions platform along with support for Mac and Linux. If you are already using Google Chrome, the update system ensures that you get the latest bug fixes and security patches, so you will get the newest version automatically in the next few days. If you haven’t used Google Chrome for a while, now might be a good time to give it another spin.

1.) Click on the wrench icon within your Google Chrome Browser window. This opens a menu.
