We recently posted some handy tips for webmasters and web developers on how to help make their sites look great in Google Chrome.

If you work on web sites, you'll want to take a look at the post and give your site a run through with Google Chrome. If you're interested in more information, check out our support resources for webmasters or the Google Chrome webmaster forum.

We're constantly working to improve website compatibility, but we'd love your help! If you run across compatibility bugs while testing your site in Google Chrome, please let us know.

I like JavaScript. It's flexible, lightweight, and it's open source. Anybody can crawl into it, look around, and shape the code into something of their own. When Google Chrome first launched with V8, its superfast JavaScript engine, it got me thinking about ways to visualize speed within the browser. So I contacted a bunch of JavaScripters from around the world and invited them to do something creative and unusual. REAS, Mr. Doob, Ryan Alexander, Josh Nimoy, and Toxi, among others, answered the call.

These artists did a lot of tweaking and tinkering to push the boundaries of JavaScript design, and to illustrate what's possible with this new generation of JavaScript engines. Today, we're launching Chrome Experiments -- a set of games and visualizations that let you see the kinds of things that JavaScript is making possible. You can view, share, and rate what they've built. Check out this video to preview some of them:



These nineteen examples are just the beginning. We're going to keep adding to them, and we'd also like to see what you can do, too. If you've made something fun and interesting with JavaScript you can submit it at ChromeExperiments.com.

Since we took the "beta" tag off Google Chrome in December, we've been updating two release channels: developer and stable. With our latest release, we're re-introducing the beta channel for some early feedback — and if you're reading the brand new Google Chrome blog, you are probably just the person to give it a try.

The best thing about this new beta is speed — it's 25% faster on our V8 benchmark and 35% faster on the Sunspider benchmark than the current stable channel version and almost twice as fast when compared to our original beta version.




Some of the new features you can try out include form autofill, full page zoom and autoscroll (both thanks to a new version of WebKit), and a cool new way to drag tabs out to get a side-by-side view (shown below).



Getting on the beta channel means your version of Google Chrome will regularly get updated with new speed enhancements, features, and bug fixes before most users see them. We're doing our best to quickly churn out new features as they are available rather than saving them up for occasional major releases. Riding the beta channel is a great way to let us know about what's working and what's not, but don't be surprised to find some rough edges. Also, if you're looking for an even earlier (and rougher) sneak preview of things to come, you can always move to the developer channel.

Try out the latest Google Chrome BETA.

Just over 6 months ago we launched our web browser, Google Chrome. Since then, we've pushed 29 updates, each working to improve Google Chrome's speed, stability, and usability.
Today we're launching the Google Chrome Blog. Here we will post feature releases, announcements, and updates on other things we're working on.
Chromium Blog readers, have no fear! The Chromium Blog will continue to live on, but will shift its focus to things that are particularly relevant to the developer community.

This blog is intended for you, so if at any point you have any comments or suggestions, please let us know so that we can make improvements.
