Today, Developers from Google Chrome team have released a new beta of Chrome browser including a new JavaScript engine codenamed V8.

The new JavaScript engine promises to give Chrome a hefty boost in speed up to 35% improvement.

In addition to speed improvement, the new Beta offers bookmark and browser reference (including themes, homepage and startup settings, web content settings, and language) synchronization across computers.

New HTML5 features including Geolocation APIs, App Cache, web sockets, and file drag-and-drop capabilities. And unlike the fruit company, Google embraces Adobe Flash, this Beta included Flash plug-in with added security and stability — you’ll automatically receive security and feature updates for Flash Player with Chrome’s auto-update mechanism.

The development team shows off  their speed test to measure speed on the browser.
