Dev Channel Update: Chrome 3.0 with Video Tag Support

Mountain View-based search engine giant has released an update for Chrome 3.0 on the dev channel. The official tag attached to the browser is Chrome; the update comes with a few version mods and enhancements, as well as an updated version WebKit and the V8 JavaScript engine. This release is meant for software developers, and hardcore software testers. If you are a regular user you are well advised to stick to Chrome 2.0, which recently reached a new milestone in its development process: Chrome 2.0 Stable.

Technical Program Manager with Google, Anthony Laforge, comments: “Google Chrome has been released to the Dev channel. The release notes are available as well as a detailed list of all revisions. You can find out about getting on the Dev channel here. If you find new issues, please let us know by filing a bug [here].”


Chrome highlights
- Video tag support
- Common typing errors are seamlessly corrected by auto-spell-correct flag.
- The UI (user interface) has been slightly modified in order to address the toolbar and dangerous download bar drawing improperly on the screen issues.
- Fixed multiple bugs and crash issues.

Chrome version changes
- WebKit 531.0
- V8
- Gears

Please note that the fonts used for the non-English user interface are very small (for most non-English languages, not all of them). The development team behind Google Chrome is aware of this fact and will make the appropriate changes in the near future, when another Chrome 3.0 update will be rolled out on the dev channel.

If you would like to get Chrome, a download location is available here.
UPDATE: The Chrome update has been released on the dev channel and it comes with larger fonts ( details here ).

In related news, you might want to give the stable version of Chrome 2.0 a shot. The software, which was release only a week ago, comes with a significant browsing speed increase (as much as 30%, as touted by the Chrome team at the time). A detailed article on Chrome 2.0 Stable is available here.
