Download Google Chrome 4.0 Beta - 400% More Performance over v1.0
Version 4.0.223.16 is Windows only


A new release of Google Chrome 4.0 is now available for download, full build string 4.0.223.16. Loyal to a Cloud-tailored mantra of simplicity and performance, Google has kicked up a notch its open source browser, revealing the first Beta development milestone of version 4.0. Ahead of the November 2nd launch of Google Chrome 4.0 Beta, version 4.0 was offered exclusively through the Mountain View search giant’s developer channel. This is no longer the case. With the unveiling of the Beta Build 4.0.223.16, Google is now offering Chrome 4.0 to the public.

However, not all users will be able to install the release. Version 4.0.223.16 is Windows only, Google informed, giving no indications as to any future plans to offer Chrome 4.0 for users of Linux and Mac OS X platforms as well. In this regard, early adopters looking to start test driving Google Chrome 4.0 Beta will need to do it on Windows XP SP2, and SP3, Vista RTM/SP1/SP2 and Windows 7.

“The Beta Channel is being updated to 4.0.223.16 which is our first Beta release for 4.0. This release includes many bug fixes and for the first time Bookmark Sync is enabled. Extensions are disabled until the final API changes arrive. Please use the dev channel for the latest extension API,” revealed Jonathan Conradt, Engineering Program Manager.

One aspect of Google Chrome’s evolution that is also characteristic of version 4.0 Beta, is the added horsepower introduced by the Mountain View search giant. Google’s Idan Avraham and Anton Muhin, Software Engineers, explained that Google Chrome 4.0 Beta delivers 400% more performance compared to Chrome 1.0, and 30% more over Chrome 3.0 Stable (according to Mozilla's Dromeao DOM Core Tests).

Google Chrome bookmark sync is a new feature introduced with version 4.0 Beta, with a self-explanatory moniker. Google Chrome 4.0 Beta allows users to synchronize bookmarks across multiple devices that are running v4.0 of the open source browser. The synchronization is done in the Google Cloud, more specifically, the XMPP-based servers for Google Talk.

Not all secure sites are like that. Most were designed before Chrome's existence so it has no compatibility whatsoever. Though, a good chunk of those sites update often to keep up and say compatible.

The story of Google Chrome development is another illustration why Windows is king and will remain so for a long time.

Google, which is supposed to be smothering Microsoft, develops the central application for a desktop these days - the browser.

The development of the Windows version flies, versions are flying out month after month, features are being added, the thing rolls..

Mac OS X and Linux versions? Well, not so fast.

So, judging by the case in point, developing for Windows is soooo much, much easier & faster and there are many people who can do that well. Coding, debugging..and so on. Even a well resourced Microsoft-battling giant like Google can't escape that fact.

Good old monkeyboi Steve was right in his rant: Developers x 3, that's what's keepin' Windows on top, despite all the Jobsian fanboi hate, malware, real problems, security issues.. there just is so much software, so much quality, so many features, so much diversity..
