Google launch another new Chrome Beta.

Google is claiming it's a 30% improvement in speed. Apparently, there's also improvements to New Tab page and Omnibox, plus a little browser color customization.

It's tempting, but I still consider the release version of Chrome to be a lot like a beta still...Not too many easy to install plug-ins/add-ons yet, not many themes.

I agree. I don't see any reason to abandon Firefox just yet.

Bill! One more post to hit 10,000!

If they still haven't got a decent toolbar and a more user friendly way to search within a page I won't bother. I like the idea of separate processes for separate sites but I just don't find Chrome user-friendly.

It was already super fast. When I can use roboform on it I will use it more often perhaps. But the IE 8 search box is pretty sweet, no need for any toolbars..

I'm still way digging my current build, I have no need to go beta yet, but I do have to say that it's handling maps.yahoo.com and maps.google.com a lot nicer now then when it first came out, so yeah.. it's a keeper..

Chrome is good in speed not interface, templates and color. It's for peoples who need speed..speed..speed

I'm loving Chrome - so quick and I love the Omnibox - once you've got used to using it it's so much easier than using other browsers - only problem is Google seem to have problems making their properties work properly in Chrome

I like it. the UI changes are ... better if funny (ie: of hte content boxes is empty with just a message:

"what will we put here?". lol)

but its not my main browser. or doubt it will ever be (google wave notwithstanding)

I don't like to work in Google chrome as it is so simple interface as compare to FF.
