Zoom Google Chrome 3 beta's New Tab page.
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 features new built-in HTML 5 capabilities, such as the <audio> and <video> elements and Web Workers.

More details about the release can be found in the Official Google Blog announcement post. Chrome beta is available to download for Windows XP SP2+ and Windows Vista.
