More style, more speed and more HTML 5 in Chrome
Google has released a third beta for version 3 of Chrome, its web browser based on Apple’s open source WebKit browser application framework. The release includes a customisable New Tab page that can be changed to suit an individual users preferences. Tabs can now be fixed to a specific position on the New Tab page and sections of the page, such as Recent Activities, can be hidden.
The "Omnibox" address bar now uses different icons to distinguish between actions like search, bookmarks and previously visited pages. The release also includes support for several new themes, allowing users to further customise the look and feel of the browser. Chrome 18.104.22.168 features new built-in HTML 5 capabilities, such as the
<video> elements and Web Workers.
