After quite a lot of Dev channel releases, the first Chrome 6 build to have a beta tag (v6.0.472.33) has been made available to the general public for testing and, why not, regular use. The Chrome 6 beta is up to 64% faster than the latest Chrome 5 release and it comes with added features too.
Among the new functions offered are Autofill - to help complete web forms quickly and easily and synchronization for extensions and Autofill data. The user interface has also been updated (streamlined upper toolbar, all-in-one options menu), while stability was increased.
Chrome 6 has finally entered its beta stage this week but if you want the freshest build of Google's browser you'll have to go through the Dev channel and download the 6.0.490.1 version released today for Windows, Mac OS and Linux.
