Google has launched version 3 of its Chrome web browser. The release arrives just months after the debut of Google Chrome 2 in May and a little over a year since the Google browser first made its debut.

The first stable release of Chrome 3, available to download at Google.com/Chrome, arrives hot on the heels of 51 developer, 21 beta and 15 stable updates and 3,505 bugfixes in the past year, says Google.

Despite its relentless release schedule, the Google Chrome team is promising a handful of useful upgrades in the latest revision. Chrome 3 promises to improve Javascript performance by up to 25 per cent and includes a number of redesigns including a new-look tab page, a tweaked Omnibox (address bar), added support for themes and additional HTML5 capabilities.

All of the above may sound familiar to beta testers who've had their hands on Chrome 3 for some time now. Users partaking in Google's dev channel, meanwhile, are already putting version 4 through its paces.

Makes no difference how fast they make it when it doesnt have the Addons that Firefox does.

Sure they have a bookmark sync built in but where is the proper (non kludged) Adblock and Flashblock and how have they engaged with Devs to get smaller Addons ported?
I want them to include RSS feeds……..

:(

I still use it, though.
I'd rather use FF for plugins and Opera for speed/features than this tbh.
Still the same ole Chrome really. They've done the Windows 7 taskbar integration though.
I've had the beta for a while and the biggest thing missing, is still a “print preview” ability! or come to that, printing that actually works correctly for the majority of WEB pages…. Though I will still continue to use it, if only because I don't like IE!
