Google Chrome Leaves Beta

11 12 2008

That was quick: Google surprised web users today with releasing the first final versions of its web browser. “We have removed the beta label as our goals for stability and performance have been met but our work is far from done,” Sundar Pichai, Google vice president of product management, announced today. Among the improvements: More speed.

The Chrome web browser was updated to version earlier today. According to Google, the software has matured enough since its initial release on September 1 to justify this move. The company says Chrome now starts up much faster and loads page much quicker: “Since the first beta, the V8 JavaScript engine runs 1.4 times faster on the SunSpider benchmark and 1.5 times faster on the V8 benchmark — and there is more speed to come,” Google said.
