Google has launched a new beta version of Chrome which is reported to be significantly faster and also has built-in flash.

Yesterday Google released a new beta version of Chrome for Windows, Mac and Linux. According to Google the new beta of Chrome version 5 is tuned for better performance and is reported to be between 30 to 35 percent faster compared to the previous version.


The new version has built-in Adobe Flash, so it is no longer needed to be installed as an external plugin. Flash will be automatically updated by using Google’s own update mechanism.

Another new feature is the ability to synchronize your Chrome settings between multiple computers. Chrome has already been able to synchronize bookmarks, but now you can also transfer all the settings between different computers.

Google has also released a video of how they designed, built, and implemented these speed tests:
