Google releases Chrome 10 beta Google has launched the first beta for Chrome 10 this week, bringing JavaScript improvements, sync improvements, and an all-new settings interface.
Chrome 10.0.648.82 is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

Google promises Chrome 10 has 66 percent faster JavaScript performance than the latest stable Chrome 9 browser. The search giant has updated its "V8 - Crankshaft" JavaScript engine to see the performance upgrades.

The browser also adds basic GPU acceleration for video, "which allows more efficient processor utilization and better battery life," says IW.

Finally, the updated browser implements support for password sync across computers.

Speaking of a password manager, when is Chrome going to get a more functional one? :-P

That's probably the #1 reason I shy away from using Chrome as my primary browser, along with its lack of tab grouping.
