Chrome 6 Beta Released – It’s Even Faster!
Today, Google announced that it will be releasing the Beta 6 version of it’s Chrome browser. For those who are subscribed to the Chromium dev channel, you will have received an automatic update to the new version of the browser.
Chrome is already, arguably the fastest and sleekest looking browser on the market. Since it’s launch over a year ago, the browser has gained considerable market share and seems to be causing a lot of trouble for our friends at Mozilla. Below is a quote from the official Chromium blog:
Other changes is Beta 6 are the complete overhaul of the user interface which has been simplified and made to look a lot cleaner:
…we have streamlined the upper toolbar, made theOmnibox more approachable, and condensed all of our options into a single menu. We hope that these visual changes will make Chrome feel even simpler.
Moreover Chrome 6 includes the ability to autofill which is detailed in the video above. Below is what Google had to say about it:
Autofill, helps you fill in web forms automatically with information that you specify, such as your name, address, phone number, and the credit card number you use for shopping online. Autofill builds up and saves this information for you over time, so that you can fill in long web forms with just a few clicks without typing in the same information over again. For your security, any personal information stored in Chrome is safely stored and kept private until a user chooses to share the information with a website. Additionally, your credit card information is never saved without first asking you explicitly.
Yet again, all that is left to say is “well done Google”. I would recomend that you try out the Chrome 6 beta release if you haven’t already done so. It is clear that Google is not willing to play catchup but is rather interested in pioneering and challenging the “old guard”; namely IE and Firefox.
