Another version of Google Chrome (beta) has been released today. You can download the latest update here. Speed seems to be the primary focus of this update, and the latest version of Chrome shows some definite advances. Google claims a 30% improvement in V8 and SunSpider benchmarks over the most recent stable Chrome release.

It's not all about speed, though. The Chrome Developers blog lists a spate of other improvements as well. The New Tab page has received an upgrade, as has the Omnibox feature. Google has also added in additional customization options by allowing users to add colors, patterns, and images to your browser.

The coolest change has to be to the New Tab page. In order to avoid the embarrassment of being seen looking at unsavory images, users will now be able to click and drag whatever websites they wish to the top of their 'most viewed' list. Now you can convince people you spend your spare time reading Moby Dick, instead of looking at...well, I've probably already insinuated enough. Check out the blog entry for additional details.
