I've just updated to the latest Google Chrome: "32.0.1700.76 m" which offers a great option to show which tabs are playing sound, also it changes the tab icon to show if you're using a webcam in that window or if you're streaming to your TV. Very helpful if suddenly a tab starts playing noisy ads and you've got 20 tabs open! It also fixes a few issues I was having with graphics not loading in chrome if I've had the same browser open for days on end.

Keeping Chrome updated

Learn about what happens when Chrome updates to a new version.
To make sure that you're protected by the latest security updates, Google Chrome automatically updates whenever it detects that a new version of the browser is available. The update process happens in the background and doesn't require any action on your part.
Check for updates

Updates are available if the Chrome menu on the browser changes colour to green , orange , or red . To apply the update, just follow the steps below.

  1. Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar.
  2. Select Update Google Chrome.
  3. In the confirmation dialogue that appears, click Restart. The browser saves your opened tabs and windows and reopens them automatically when it restarts. If you'd prefer not to restart right away, click Not now. The next time you restart your browser, the update will automatically be applied.

Windows 8 users: Make sure that you close all Chrome windows and tabs on the desktop and Windows 8 app, then relaunch Chrome to apply the update.
