Google Release Chrome Beta 3

Google released an updated version of the Chrome web browser, dubbed Chrome Beta 3. This new version promises new features and increased speed. Two of the new features center on the new tab page that users see when first opening the program. Users can now arrange the previously visited thumbnails, as well as pin them in place so they cannot be displaced. The new beta also tested faster by 20%+ in both the V8 and SunSpider Javascript benchmarks, something the average user may not notice. One of my personal favorite upgrades is the option to choose the theme for your browser, giving users the option to change from the default blue and white color scheme. The only announcement that could have mind this better in my mind would have been a release for Linux.
