Chrome Geolocation Feature Now Available [news.cnet.com]
"The geolocation feature is now available in Chrome 5.0.375.25 (Official Build 45690)."

With those words, posted Thursday at the bottom of a Chrome issue tracker item, the developer version of Google's browser for Windows, Mac, and Linux catches up to Firefox with one important new component of the Web. That component, geolocation, lets a browser tell a Web site the location of a person's computer once the person has given permission.

Well as a user I seldom want location based info about where I am although I often want it about where I am going. I think I will stick with Firefox and normal searching and protect my privacy at the same time.
