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.”
