Preview: Google Chrome 8

Google has announced the release of Chrome 8 developer build according to a blog post on its Chrome blog Tuesday, stating categorically on the new features expected on the next version of the open-source browser.

The next version of the Google browser, Chrome 8 will arrive with the Google Instant search streaming capability right on the browsers URL bar, according to the pre-release note. The streaming search technology, Google Instant, runs as a user types a query in the browsers URL bar.

Google Instant feature, which comes as a result of Google's quest for faster web experience, now finds more accelerating search prediction results on the Chrome, as the browser recognizes the URL typed swings into action and goes ahead to load the given page.

Other new feature on the Chrome 8 includes: support for Google Cloud printing capability. Also there is a more enhanced hardware acceleration as against how it's featured on Chrome 7, whereby users had to restart the browser from the command line to turn it on.

However, it's worthy to note that the developer build is still an experimental project, as a number of bugs are expected, but if you intend to give it a try, see the Chromium dev channel.
