Google Chrome Releases Faster Version
By on March 17th, 2009

has been seeing several improvements over the past few months and the lightweight and fast browser, has been made more faster by the Chrome development team.

The best thing about this new beta is 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.

In addition to the improvements in speed, this beta version also includes form autofill, full page zoom and autoscroll, along with a cool new feature that allows you to drag the tabs to get a side-by-side view as shown in the videos below.

This feature is pretty similar to the the bookmarklet we had told you earlier, which allow users to work in a dual pane split browser mode.

You will need to subscribe to the development channel of Google Chrome to get this beta version, check out a step by step guide on How To Get Latest Development Versions Of Google Chrome.

    Hey Keith, thanks for bringing the news.

    If only I remembered to bring my laptop to work, I would update but it looks like I’ll have to wait!

    I can’t wait to see the improvement.

      @Tim Glad to be of assistance, you will definitely see a lot of improvements there.

    This is a welcomed change for chrome. Will be testing it out and see if it lives up to what it boasts.
