Install the new Chrome 6 now (or 7 if you dare)

03Sep10
Google released Chrome 6 into the wild yesterday.  There have been quite a few changes both under the hood and to the UI.  Window chrome itself has been toned down in colour slightly with a darker blue, the menus and buttons have been streamlined.   They say that javascript is now even faster, three times faster than it was two years ago.
Google removed http:// from the address bar and added sync across browsers for extensions, autofill, bookmarks, preferences and themes.  Oh, and there’s intergrated WebM video support (the Flash plugin was baked into the last version).
I’ve been playing with Chrome 7 and this is already testing hardware graphics acceleration among other features. You can install this from the dev channel if you want to be bleeding edge.
To update to stable Chrome 6 either hit http://www.google.com/chrome If you have 5 installed already, go to Settings and About Chrome and hit Update.
