Google's New Chrome Beta is Faster

The new beta version of Chrome (v. 2.0.169.1) is faster.

Google had introduced the faster beta version of Chrome on March 27th and after trying it for more than two days, I can say that it is definitely faster than the earlier stable version.

According to Google Chrome blog, the new browser is “25 percent faster on our V8 benchmark and 35 percent faster on the Sunspider benchmark than the current stable channel version and almost twice as fast when compared to our original beta version.”

Some new features are also included in the new beta release. This includes form autofill, autoscroll and full page zoom (press F11). Tabs in Chrome have become more functional with this beta version. Users are allowed to drag-and-drop tabs on the desktop to get a side-by-side view of two pages (watch this video below).



Chrome has become now the fourth most popular browser, taking out Opera, that is according to Web metrics company Net Applications. This is significant for Chrome because Google launched its browser only in last September and the stand-alone version came only in December 2008.

So for the new Chrome beta, I would recommend thumps up and if you want to see your browser fly, download the new Chrome beta release from here.
