Google releases a new version of its browser every six weeks or so. Chrome

59 will arrive by end of June.


Google has launched Chrome 58 for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Among the additions is support for the IndexedDB 2.0 standard and improvements to iframe navigation. You can update to the latest version now using the browser’s built-in silent updater, or download it directly from

Chrome’s regular additions and changes, developers have to keep up to ensure they are taking advantage of everything available.

Chrome 58 supports the IndexedDB 2.0 standard, which makes it easier to work with large data sets in the browser. Version 2.0 features new schema management, bulk action methods, and more standardized handling of failures.

New methods include getKey() and openKeyCursor() for better performance when only a database key is needed, continuePrimaryKey() to divide large data access across transactions and page loads without worrying about duplicate primary keys, and getAll() and getAllKeys() for bulk recovery of entire datasets without the need for a cursor.

Chrome also now supports the new iframe sandbox keyword allow-top-navigation-by-user-activation.
