Google Released Chrome 2.0 Pre-Beta

Recently Google’s final version of Chrome 1.0 was released and now, Google is planning to come out with some other new and improved features and hence it has just announced the release of a pre-beta version – Chrome 2.0. In this pre-beta release  of Google Chrome, there are many new features that its users were looking for, like – Forms auto fill option, full-page zoom, auto scroll, support for GreaseMonkey scripts, etc.

Among all the additional features in Chrome 2.0 Pre-Beta release, the feature I personally liked is support for GreaseMonkey scripts (User Scripts) though I am yet to try them out. If you want to try these new features, just follow the instructions given on the official Google blog. But do not forget that, as this is a pre-beta release, all new features are just experimental and may harm your computer system.

That’s good news.
But the only problems I saw in the older version (then I stopped using it):
It can’t import the username and passes from mozilla.
It doesn’t have plugins support.
Doesn’t have many options (preferences) like mozilla (firefox) has.
It also gets hanged sometimes.

I hope that these won’t be the problems in this version. 😀
