California, Feb 19: Android maker Google has released a new version of its popular web browser Google Chrome for beta testers and developers. The new version, Chrome v10, will be 66 per cent faster than the current stable release.
Google claimed that the GOU hardware that accelerated video on Chrome 10 will reduce the CPU usage by 80 per cent when viewing full screen videos. The new version also enables synchronizing saved passwords across multiple computers, along with users bookmarks, preferences, themes and extensions.
Adding more security features, Chrome 10 allows users to encrypt their synced passwords with their own secret sync passphrase. The settings interface will appear in a tab as opposed to a dialog box. The new 'search box' helps to find anything related to font customizations, language and spell-checker settings and the translate option among others.
