The Google Chrome development team constantly works on three different versions of the web browser; A stable build, a beta build and a dev build.
The beta build offers a good compromise between stability and speed. The latest Chrome beta update promises a 30% to 35% speed improvement over the previous beta channel release which in itself is already faster than the stable release of the browser.
This alone might convince users who dig speed to make the switch to the beta channel – or the even faster dev channel. But the latest Chrome update available for Windows, Linux and Macintosh systems delivers more than just speed.
The developers have added a handful of features to the beta release. Bookmark sync for one has been extended so that browser preferences, themes, homepage and startup settings can now be synced as well.
This beta version of the browser is now also including a native version of the Adobe Flash Player. Security conscious users who prefer to work without Flash can disable it in the browser’s options.
The two other features that have been added are several new HTML5 features including Geolocation, drag and drop, web sockets or app cache and the ability to install extension in the browser’s incognito mode.
