Google Chrome gets 30 per cent turbo boost
Google has claimed to have increased the speed of its Chrome browser by 30 per cent.
The new beta release of Google Chrome is the fastest version yet created, according to Mads Ager, a software engineer at the search giant.
"In fact, looking back in time, Chrome's performance has improved by as much as 213 per cent and 305 per cent on these two benchmarks since our very first beta," Ager said in a blog post.
Google has not just been working on speed enhancements, however. Beta users are now able to synchronise browser preferences on different computers using a Google Account. This includes themes, web content settings and language.
The new Chrome release is also the first to feature initial integration of Adobe Flash Player.
It appears the race is on for creating super-fast browsers. Opera claimed last month that it had improved the speed of its service for Mac by 10 times, creating the world's fastest browser designed for the system.
Meanwhile, both Google Chrome and Opera have been responsible for eating away at Internet Explorer's browser market share in recent months.
