Google is still developing its great browser, Google Chrome. New version of Google Chrome will be coming out soon. Before that, Google has released its beta version (18.104.22.168). Regardless from what happens, this browser has been included with fresh features. I’ve just tried it and I’m going to make some reviews about these new features.
1. New Tab Revolution
Google Chrome has made some improvements step to make New Tab page better. Now, it has “pin” to make a website always appears on page and “close” to make a website is not showed on page. You decide this. You can also see two views here, they are Thumbnail View and List View. Last, you can customize its layout for filtering what information you want to see. The default layout consist of Thumbnail, Recent Activities and Even More.
Now, you can customize Google Chrome skin. There are 29 skins available at first time. You can choose what your favourite is. Google said that they will add more themes for its release version. It is great features from Google Chrome.
3. Improved Omnibox
Omnibox is name of address bar where you always type your destination url. The improvement is your suggested urls are iconized now. It will help you distinguish between suggested sites, searches, bookmarks, and sites from your browsing history.
4. HTML 5 Support
Of course, Google Chrome will support the next generation of HTML, HTML 5. I still don’t get further information about this but it will handle video tag and web workers.
6. Speedier, Faster and Smarter
We need this. Faster is better while browsing. Google Chrome has been impoved its engine to make it faster than before. Google Chrome is also smarter because it will prioritize pages for example when you open new page while other page is still loading, Google Chrome will display content for your new page first than old one.
Even though it is still beta, Google Chrome is still worth to try. I’m using it right now and I feel satisfy with it. The release version will be very much better than beta. So, be patient for that.
