Chrome Update Offers Accelerated Speed

Google announced Thursday that an update to its Chrome web browser should improve the loading speed of JavaScript-heavy Web pages. It runs JavaScript-heavy Web pages about 30% faster than the last stable version of Chrome, according to Google. It's also more stable, through the termination of more than 250 bugs since Chrome's debut. The updates will be automatically downloaded to existing copies of Chrome.

According to Darin Fisher, Chrome software engineer, 'the new Chrome is refered to as Chrome 2, but that's mainly a metric to help us keep track of changes internally.'We don't give too much weight to version numbers and will continue to roll out useful updates as often as possible, he added.

Also other changes to Chrome, includes the addition of new features that mitigates the embarrassment or an improved New Tab page that allows the ability to remove thumbnails of visited sites that appears when you open a new tab in Chrome - title bar-concealment option for full-screen presentations, and form autofill.
