Google Chrome Beta 10 - Faster and GPU acceleration

On Thursday Google released their first Beta of Chrome 10 which is available for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows. Google claims faster JavaScript performance (66% faster), due to the new version of its V8 - Crankshaft JavaScript engine. It also introduces a preliminary implementation of GPU acceleration (already exists in Safari and IE9) for video which allows for more efficient processor utilization which leads to better battery life. The claim that in full screen video mode, CPU usage may decrease by 80%. They also introduce a new look for the settings dialogs which are now a tab with dedicated URLs to access them, so makes it really easy to help friends and family (check out the video below).

I suggest you go get it .. I am writing this post using Chrome 10 :-).
