    SAN FRANCISCO: Google released a new version of its Chrome Web browser, as
    the search giant continues its efforts to get a foothold in a market
    dominated by Microsoft Corp.

    The new Chrome represents the first major update of the software aimed at
    the general public since Google entered the browser business six months ago.

    According to a post on Google's blog, the new Chrome beta loads certain
    types of Web pages 25 per cent to 35 per cent faster than the current
    version of the browser.

    It offers Web surfers faster performance and a handful of new features, such
    as auto-filling of personal information on online forms and a new way for
    users to drag around tabs of different Web pages within the browser window.

    Google was a distant No.4 in the browser market, with 1.2 per cent share of
    the worldwide market in February, according to market research firm Net

    Microsoft's Internet Explorer dominates the market, with a 67.4 per cent
    market share in February, while the Mozilla foundation's Firefox browser had
    a roughly 22 per cent share. Apple's Safari browser had an 8 per cent share.

    Last month, Google officially joined the European Union's antitrust case
    against Microsoft, describing the browser market as "largely uncompetitive."
    The EU has charged Microsoft with abusing its dominant market position by
    bundling its Internet Explorer Web browser with its Windows personal
    computer operating system.

    The new features were previously available to programmers using the
    "developer" version of Chrome, but Google has now packaged all the updates
    together into a more reliable beta test version that is available for

    Google also has a more polished, so-called stable version of Chrome, based
    on the older beta version.
