Google Chrome gets a major overhaul. More Speed, More Secure and More Smart. The Beta Version is now available for download. You can test its speed by downloading from the link provided at the bottom of this post.
Chrome is my favorite browser. Although i have installed Firefox, Opera, Maxthon and a load of other browsers too on my computer, i use Chrome the most frequently. Simply because its fast and i like things to get done quickly. The new Chrome is all about adding more speed.
According to the official Google blog post,
To get you where you want to go even faster, Chrome will now start loading some web pages in the background, even before you’ve finished typing the URL in the omnibox. If the URL auto-completes to a site you’re very likely to visit, Chrome will begin to prerender the page.
This is a great feat, isn’t it guys? I bet there is no other browser which pre-renders a webpage, atleast till now! Apart from the speed improvements, the Google Chrome Team is also focused to provide the browser with extra security features when downloading a file. Kinda like, the Safari, but this is more Google.
When you download executable files such as .exe and .msi, which are considered as threats to your Computer, the new Chrome will automatically notify you that its dangerous and ask you if you want to still consider downloading it. I guess this was a major security feature which completely lacked in the previous versions.
I hope the Google Chrome browser will continue to be the best browser in the world.
