Google Chrome Portable 11.0.696.71

At first glance Google's new Chrome 11 looks and behaves much the same as it always has: a clean, straightforward browser that's significantly faster than most of the competition.

There are some interesting features just beneath the surface, though, and top of the list has to be support for the HTML5 speech input API. The demo at HTML5 Rocks shows you how this might work right now - talk into your microphone, and your words appear in a web page text box - but more dynamic applications may not be too far away.

Chrome 11 also adds support for GPU-accelerated 3D CSS transforms, allowing it to render more complex sites with the minimum of impact on your CPU usage.

Oddly, at the same time Chrome's old 3D icon has disappeared, to be replaced by a flatter and more stylised version.

Note that this is the portable version of the final stable version of Google Chrome.
