The official Google Chrome blog says,

Today’s new beta release incorporates one of Chrome’s most significant speed and performance increases to date, with 30% and 35% improvement on the  V8 and  SunSpider benchmarks over the previous beta  channel release. In fact, looking back in time, Chrome’s performance has improved by as much as 213% and 305% on these two benchmarks since our very first beta.

As clear from the above quote, the new beta has speed, speed and more speed. An improvement of 30% to 35% is remarkable and there soon, there will be a time when Google Chrome will be the leader in web-browser technology.

Though, the new beta is not all about speed. There have been other significant changes. The synchronization feature now works not only for bookmarks but also for the themes and other browser settings. Installing add-ons in incognito mode is also possible and many new HTML5 features have been incorporated encouraging the use of HTML5.

This is also the first Chrome beta that features automatic security updates for the Adobe Flash plugin.

This new beta release can be tried for Windows at the  beta channel, or you can download the  Mac and  Linux versions at the respective links.

    May be in the future, but Chrome is not there yet. The one revolutionary feature in Chrome is Omnibar, most of the other stuff aren't groundbreaking.

    Also according to Comptuer World, Google Chrome is still lagging behind Opera in JS tests.

  2. Speed was the reason for me originally trying out Chrome, and by the sounds of it the speed factor is just getting better and better. Although I am quite happy with firefox, I do occasionally need more speed and am really tempted to download this.
