Google Chrome, the world’s second-favorite browser has come up with a new beta that will not only increase its speed but also its security.
According to the official Google Chrome blog, the release of the new beta of the Chrome browser, version 17.0.963.26 beta-m, acquires its extra speed by loading a few Web pages in the background, even before one has completed typing the URL in omnibox.
Google has also announced that the new beta will also offer additional security against malevolent websites and their malicious downloads. Dominic Hamon, the software engineer wrote in the Chrome blog post the beta version includes “expanded functionality to analyze executable files (such as “.exe” and “.msi” files) that you download.” Google Chrome will inform its users with a warning that they should discard such defected files. Hamon also reported that the company will make Chrome further smart in the coming days such that it can detect even more malicious files.
On downloading and testing the new Chrome beta we discovered that it actually feels faster. It downloaded and installed files without any hitch. It feels stable too so far. After typing a web address I visited the Chrome address window, omnibox, where all the URLs appear and it actually felt like it was quicker.
I will continue testing the browser to figure out if there are any bugs. You can try the new beta test release by downloading the beta version of Chrome from here – http://www.google.com/landing/chrome/beta/ – While Chrome is the world’s second largest used browser, Google Chrome 15 beat out Internet Explorer 8as the most popular browser version throughout the world.
