The new Chrome version includes an introductory implementation of GPU acceleration for video, addition of support for password synchronization across multiple computers as well as opening of its Preferences menu interface in a separate tab.
The appeal of Google Chrome goes far away from speed. Other factors are also allowing Google’s Browser to capture global market share of over 10%. Google is planning to develop an OS around its browser. The plus point for the influential developer audience is that Chrome users can depend on being able to test with cutting edge Google projects like Native Client.
Chrome will be facing competition further too with the release of Microsoft’s IE9 and Firefox 4 speculated in coming months. Google, as of now is pushing Web technology and is making it certain that the browser developers get no rest.
