Chrome 3, new interface

Chrome 3.0 final is available since September 15, 2009.
A faster version, customizable and brings us closer to HTML 5, before the 3D in the browser, the next step.

Redesigned Interface

Thumbnails appearance changes under the mouse to show a close button. You can move the thumbnails with the mouse. We can now replace images by a list.

The Omnibox search box displays now icons in the suggest list, related to the types of links:
- Bookmarks.
- Suggests.
- History.

Faster

As shown by the benchmarks displayed on the blog of Google, the V8 JavaScript compiler is 25% faster than Chrome 2.
This makes it the fastest on the market.

HTML 5

The next standard for web pages, HTML 5 is gradually implemented.
The following tags are added to Canvas, which was already added:
- <audio>
- <video>
This allows you to embed media without plugin.
