Google today announced the release of the official beta versions of Google Chrome for Mac, Windows and Linux. The release brings several improvements to the company’s web browser, including an integrated Adobe Flash plugin and significant speed increases.
Today’s new beta release incorporates one of Chrome’s most significant speed and performance increases to date, with 30% and 35% improvement on the V8 and SunSpider benchmarks over the previous beta channel release. In fact, looking back in time, Chrome’s performance has improved by as much as 213% and 305% on these two benchmarks since our very first beta.
The new beta also adds preferences syncing across different computers and new HTML 5 support features, such as geolocation and file drag-and-drop support.
