Chrome 6 Promoted to Beta Status
You can now download Chrome 6 Beta.
The new features include: a simplified user interface, a new autofill feature for completing web forms, better syncing, which includes support for autofill data and extensions.
The autofill feature is integrated in Chrome 6 beta, so all of your instances of Chrome (home, work, laptop, etc) will be able to share preferences, extensions, browsing data and themes, as well as form data. Chrome will store, sync, and remember information you’d normally put in a web form. Additionally, Chrome can remember credit card information.
In the next couple of weeks, Chrome will probably move from a beta to a general stable release.
