Chrome 2 could be 30 per cent faster

by David Allen

The Google browser Chrome is being updated and the new version is said to be around thirty per cent faster than the older version, which was released back in September 2008.

The speed increase will be noticed more by users who frequently visit web sites that are heavy with JavaScript.

As well as being faster, the browser will also offer some helpful additions such as form autofill, full screen mode and the removing of thumbnails when the new tab page is opened up.

Chrome is still classified as being in beta, but that is not unusual for Google as many of its applications are.

The new version of Chrome can be downloaded from google.com/chrome.

Those who are already using the Chrome will see that the latest version has been downloaded automatically.

  1. “Chrome is still classified as being in beta” is misleading. The version change you’re talking about was a change to the (non-beta) stable release channel. While there is also a beta channel available for people who prefer getting updates more quickly, Chrome is not a “beta product”.
