Chrome 2.0, the super fast web browser developed by search engine giant Google, stole all the headlines at the end of the week and for good reason: the stable version of Chrome 2.0 became available for download. Fresh out of Beta, the browser boasted about a 30% speed increase, alongside other improvements. Now simply because there is a stable version of Chrome 2.0, this does not mean Chrome 2.0 Beta is out of the picture – not for the time being at least.

Google Chrome Program Manager, Mark Larson, announced the fact that the Chrome Beta channel has been updated; Chrome 2.0.172.30 has been made available for download via the aforementioned channel, which you can join by downloading the Chrome Beta channel installer – download link here.

- Translations are complete and available in all languages. Just as a little reminder, the languages that Google Chrome offers support for are: Arabic, Bengali, Brazilian Portuguese, Bulgarian, Catalan, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English UK, English US, Estonian, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Gujarati, Hebrew, Hindi, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kanada, Korean, Latvian, Lithuanian, Malayalam, Marathi, Norwegian, Oriya, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Serbian, Slovakian, Slovenian, Spanish, Spanish for Latin America, Swedish, Tamil, Telugu, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian, and Vietnamese.
- French spell check dictionary no longer causes the browser to crash.
- Visiting a web page with more than 50 feed links no longer causes the browser to crash.
- “An experimental change in the V8 JavaScript engine that might improve page load times for pages with a lot of JavaScript,” as Mark Larson stated.
