Google pushes out Chrome 5 beta for Windows

Developer channel stacks up

High performance access to file storage

Google has released a new Windows-based beta of its Chrome browser to its developer channel.

The Chrome 5.0.360.0 release comes with several bug fixes and a new tabbed bookmark manager, which was slotted into Google's Chromium code last week.

Google had previously provided the bookmark manager as a separate window, which some felt made the tool appear clunky and out of step with other design elements in Chrome.

With this release, Google has also overhauled its automatic translation and AutoFill features in the 5.0.360.0 release.

Elsewhere on Chrome world, Google has updated an earlier version of its browser for all platforms.

Chrome 5.0.356.2 comes with a geolocation API, "incognito" extensions, and unpacked add-ons are now remembered across browser restarts.

Google has a full list of the changes here. ®
