[Google] Chrome 10 claims exciting improvements!
Yesterday, I was almost about to sleep when suddenly I noticed a small icon on my Chrome browser toolbar which indicates that there is a pending update. I immediately allowed the operation and my browser re-started. When I checked the ‘About’ section, I was amazed to see the new ‘Beta’ version of Chrome, i.e. 10.0 (10.0.648.82 to be specific).
What all is New?
- The beta also adds support for GPU video acceleration, which is said to decrease the CPU usage by a whopping 80%. Ultimately, this would let you be more multi-tasking and even save on battery life.
- Another change you should notice is the browser Settings now opens in a different tab instead of the old ‘window’ style.
- You can even search for a specific thing you are looking for inside the Settings section.
- Now you can sync your saved passwords too alongwith the other browser settings. Don’t be afraid, it will allow to set a separate password to encrypt your saved passwords.
Rest you can understand better by looking at the video. Also, download Google Chrome 10 now.
