Google has released a new developer-oriented version of Chrome that brings better bookmark management to the Web browser.

People could import bookmarks to the earlier versions of the browser, but version 0.4.154.18 adds the a bookmark manager. "You can search bookmarks, create folders, and drag and drop bookmarks to new locations," said Chrome Program Manager Mark Larson in an e-mail announcement.

It's a developer release, so only those who've subscribed to the Chrome developer channel will get the new version.

Another change comes to the browser's pop-up blocker. Previously, it "just minimized pop-up windows to the lower-right corner of the browser window," with a window for each pop-up. Now there's a notification number and a menu to open a specific pop-up window if desired.

A "moderate" security issue also is fixed in which "downloaded HTML files (could) read other files on your computer and send them to sites on the Internet," Google said.

The release notes have further details about disabling spell-check, improving Japanese input, and other matters.
