Google announced that new GPU acceleration advances (like in Internet Explorer 9) in the upcoming version 7 of Chrome are achieving speeds 60 times faster than in version 6 of the browser. The latest beta version of Mozilla's Firefox 4 also uses hardware acceleration for faster speeds.
Now this one should heat things up for browser section. First it's IE making hardware work for 'em & now Chrome 7 is following CUDA (nVIDIA) & Stream Processing (ATi) idea of using GPU as your secondary processor. A very good idea for people like me using a graphic card & unable to USE it when surfing, now Chrome 7 & IE9 will add best value to every piece of hardware in that assembled box!
