Google Chrome 10 Beta Released; Faster than Rabbits
By on February 18th, 2011

I have been using Google Chrome 10 for almost 3 months now, and have been bumped to Google Chrome 11 in the development channel. My experience with Google Chrome 10 has been really good with it being two times faster than Google Chrome 9 thanks to the new Crankshaft technology in their JavaScript V8 engine.

If you are someone who does not like to use development software but can use beta software, here is some good news. Google just announced that they are releasing Google Chrome 10 to the beta channel with the new Crankshaft technology.

As I had confirmed earlier, this new build is twice as fast as 9 and makes browsing a breeze. Chrome 10 beta also introduces GPU-accelerated video which makes uses of your graphics hardware to display videos and decreases CPU usage. Google claims that full screen video will decrease by almost 80% in Chrome 10 beta.

Google Chrome 10 also includes the ability to sync your passwords along with bookmarks, preferences, themes and extensions. Google also provides users with the ability to encrypt the passwords with your own sync passphrase ensuring security for your stored data.

The settings/preferences has also been moved to its own page just like it is in the that is used on the Cr-48 netbooks. Overall, the release of Google Chrome 10 beta brings a lot of goodies your way and brings it close to a stable release. If you are using Google Chrome beta, go to Settings -> About and Check for Updates to upgrade to the latest version.
