Google's Chrome browser turned a lot of heads when it first launched
back in September 2008, and the search giant surprised even more people by dropping the beta tag from the browser only a few months later. Now there's news of a new version
of Chrome, still free and back with beta status, but reportedly between 25- and 35-percent faster than previously, depending on benchmarking. There are also new features like side-by-side tab views and autoscrolling.
