Writing in a post entitled “Faster than a speeding rabbit: speed, sync, and settings” on the Google Chrome Blog, product manager Jeff Chang and product marketing manager Li Chan described the GPU video acceleration: “Users with capable graphics hardware should see a significant decrease in CPU usage. In full screen mode, CPU usage may decrease by as much as 80%! This means better battery life so you can keep going and going like that pink bunny in the commercials.”
Beyond performance, the new beta adds a couple of other new user features. Users can now sync saved site passwords on multiple computers. The released version already allows syncing of bookmarks, preferences, themes, and extensions. The new feature also allows for encryption of the synced password if the user chooses that measure of extra security.
The Settings interface has been redesigned, displaying on the Web page area, rather than a separate dialog. This follows a longstanding trend in Chrome towards making every function look like a Web page—just as it does with History, Downloads, and Extension settings. Also new for settings is a search box, where you can just type in the function you’re looking for and set it on the resulting page.
The new version will likely make it to the stable release channel some time in the next few weeks: Chrome versions have been coming out at a pace of once every three months—more frequently than any other major browser. To try out the beta for yourself, head to the Google Chrome Beta download page, or change your current Chrome release channel to the beta on the channel changer page.
With this the browser War heats up has never before..
