Google releases faster Chrome beta

Google has released a Chrome beta which it claims is the fastest and most efficient yet.

Using the V8 benchmark the new beta clocks in at 30 per cent faster and 35 percent in the SunSpider benchmark test.

Each time Chrome has had a new release the browser has gotten faster over the years, Chrome’s performance has jumped 213 and 305 percent, on the benchmark tests.  In fact a 30 per cent increase in speed is somewhat lacklustre.

Users of the latest beta can synchronize their bookmarks on multiple computers as well as browser preferences such as homepage/startup settings, language and themes.

Additionally, you can also now install and use Chrome extensions in “incognito” mode which means that you put on a false beard, a Groucho Marx nose and glasses to watch porn.

The beta release “contains the goodness of some new HTML5 features, namely Geolocation APIs, App Cache, web sockets, and file drag-and-drop capabilities.”

This is the first Chrome beta that features initial integration of the Adobe Flash Player plug-in with Chrome.  Security and feature updates for Flash Player will be “automatically delivered using Chrome’s auto-update mechanism.”
