The first thing you’ll notice with Google’s new beta of its Chrome Web browser is that it’s faster, much faster, than the last version. You don’t need any fancy tests to see that. All you have to do is use it and you’ll see that it blows other browsers away.
Other Chrome tests haven’t shown such significant improvements, but the bottom line is that the new Chrome is visibly faster than most other browsers. While it’s true that Opera Software’s Opera 10.53 is faster still, it’s also true that Opera has been plagued with numerous serious security problems. For the best combination of speed and security you can’t currently beat Chrome.
