A new Beta Chrome browser is now available for Windows OS. Google in its official blog, says the new Beta version of the Chrome browser is faster. The official Google Chrome blog claims 30% speed improvement. In addition, Google Chrome Beta offers a customizable New Tab page, an improved Omnibox, browser themes, and HTML 5 capability.
Aside from improved speed which is one of the aims of the Google Chrome browser, the Beta Chrome browser has a number of improvements in user experience. One of this being that you can now customise the New Tab page. You can now change the location of a website thumbnail by simply dragging and dropping at the desired spot. Google Chrome even allows you to pin a website thumbnail to a location. With this features, Google Chrome Beta enables you to keep your most favourite websites on the new tab page even if your recent browsing habits tends to push them out.
The Omnibox, Google Chrome’s single box for entering address and search terms, also has some improvements. Now when you click on the drop down menu, Google Chrome Beta adds an icon to each item, which identifies it either as a suggested site, search, bookmark, or a site from your browsing history, enabling you to easily distinguish each item.
Another great addition to the Google Chrome Beta is that you can now change the look and feel. Google Chrome Beta offers a number of basic themes, which enable you to have a Chrome browser that is as distinct as you are. Google Chrome Beta also boasts support for next generation HTML5, including video tagging.
The new Google Chrome browser is a Beta version. Beta Versions of software are usually used to test new features of a software package or application and gather useful inputs and suggestions from users before release of a stable version. This means that using a Beta version can be quite challenging as they are not stable but if you like using technologies before other people, then you may favour a Beta Version. You cannot use Google Chrome Beta and stable release on the same machine, you can only have one at a time.
