Google Launches Chrome 3

Google celebrated their first birthday with a belated gift for everyone – Chrome 3 web browser. I installed it at work today but didn’t have time to really explore the new improvements. Depending rather heavily on my Firefox at the moment.

Google Chrome 3

First impression of Chrome 3 was pretty good though, especially the theme customisation. Currently, there are 29 themes, including the classic blue theme. Just installed it on my home pc and applied the Gradient theme. Looking great! Speed-wise, it is definitely still the fastest browser for me. Other improvements include HTML 5 support (HTML5 Gallery – a showcase of websites using HTML 5 markup, for those interested) and the new page tab, which you can pin the mini-screenshot portlet and keep it.

Won’t be swapping with Firefox permanently just yet, but the gaps are certainly closing.
