The New BETA Version of Google Chrome

Google has released a new beta version of its Chrome browser. The new beta is promised to be more faster and has also had more user features added to make it fuller featured.

“The best thing about this new beta is acceleration( speed ) — it's 25% faster on our V8 benchmark and 35% faster on the Sunspider benchmark than the current stable channel version and almost twice as fast when compared to our original beta version,” said Google Chrome Product Manager, Brian Rakowski, in a blog post.

Other features added include autocomplete on web forms, the ability to zoom in of certain sections of web pages and a new form of tabbing, that allows called windows to be viewed side by side.

The beta will not replace the current stable Chrome browser, but will run side by side with it.

“Getting on the beta channel means your version of Google Chrome will consistently get updated with new acceleration enhancements, features, and bug fixes before more users see them,” said Rakowski.

“We're doing our best to quickly churn out new features as they are available rather than saving them up for occasional major releases. Riding the beta channel is a great way to let us know about what's working and what's not, but don't be surprised to find some rough edges.”

Google launched the Chrome browser in September of last year but so far it has failed to make serious inroads into the browser market.
