Google Chrome Beta is a web browser that does not fall far from its mother tree, Google Chrome. The only difference between the two is that this beta version is on the front row when it comes to the latest updates. Before everything is launched and made officially available for Chrome, Users of this beta browser will get to experience these updates first hand.

To improve services, programs offer constant updates and new features. Google Chrome Beta exists to test these new updates out before its release on the market. Basically, users who prefer to browse using the beta version have the chance to test first all of Google Chrome’s new updates and features.
Afterward, they can submit their feedback and opinions, which will be valued and used as a guide by the developers in further enhancing the new features until they are at its peak best. These updates are automatically applied in this browser version but are not intrusive during the download and installation process.
Aside from new features, Google also aims to better the browser’s performance. One of the improvements being worked on progressively is Google Chrome’s ability to house up to 100 active tabs all out once without the browser crashing or hanging. Its memory usage is continuously being optimized just for this, so if you are someone who has a habit of opening and keeping as many tabs as you can, this beta version is made for you. Another thing that is being tested is the appeal of arranging your bookmarked pages alphabetically, which is ideal for users who would like to keep things organized in their bookmarks list for easier searches.
