Chrome Beta Gains Native Flash Support, Speed Increases and More
Tuesday, May 4, 2010
Posted by: Glenn

Google has announced the release of a new beta version of their Chrome browser. According to the company, this update incorporates one of Chrome's most significant speed and performance increases to date, with 30% and 35% improvement on the V8 and SunSpider benchmarks over the previous beta channel release. It also includes an integrated Flash Player plug-in and new HTML5 features like geolocation, App Cache, web sockets, and file drag-and-drop. So grab it now from the Google website - it's pretty awesome. All you need is Mac OS X 10.5 or later.

I don't get it not as fast as safari for me plus it looks horrible. Using it right now may give it a few hours before it goes to the trash bin.

I originally started using it with a netbook and haven't looked back. I certainly don't see this release ending that trend. It's pretty darn snappy.

I like the clean look and the overall performance. I haven't used Safari in a while now. It always hangs and crap on me. Safari is the best mobile webkit-based browser though. I have fewer problems with it compared to the desktop version.

I switched over from Safari after they fully implemented the bookmark manager. I haven't looked back since.

I just started using Chrome again after I realized they had made some seriuos improvements. I find myself using it more than Safari and Firefox. As long as they continue to improve it I'll continue to use it.

Great, it's noticeably faster than before. Shocked

Hopefully the flash player crashes will stop now too.

It still resizes the browser window when downloading a file. Since it doesn't do that in Chrome for Windows, it's something that CAN be fixed. It's nitpicking to be sure, but it's enough to keep me using FF still.

How does one insert a search box to the right of the address box? How does one add other icons like "print", "history" etc.?

From what I can see, you can't do any of these things? WTH? Evil or Very Mad
