Google Chrome 10 beta gets Crankshaft engine, GPU
Online sync will now also optionally sync saved passwords and can themselves get an encrypted passphrase. Settings have been revamped both to appear in-browser and to let users search for and hop to a settings area by using the Omnibox bar.
The beta is available for Linux, Macs and Windows PCs. In step with Google's plans for rapid turnarounds of new Chrome versions, the updates should reach the stable (complete) builds within a "few weeks."
Graphics acceleration isn't new to web browsing and is already found in Internet Explorer 9 and Safari.
