Google Releases Updated Version of Chrome (the Browser)

A new release of Google Chrome is out and there are quite a few features you’ll want to know about.

First up, it’s faster. When you open a new page while other pages are loading, Chrome prioritizes requests for the new page. (I usually want the older pages to load first, but whatev.) DNS caching, more efficient DOM bindings and using V* or proxy auto-config should also contribute to a quicker browsing experience.

You can customize your New Tab Page to set which sites you would like quick access to. Drag website thumbnails to give them a spot on the page. The change will remain permanent no matter what your browsing habits are.

The Omnibox, which provides suggestions based on keystrokes is optimized to help distinguish between keyword searches and websites. New themes let you dress up your browser, and HTML 5 capabilites are being built into the beta.
