Google has released version two of its Chrome browser, incorporating features based on user feedback since the original release eight months ago.

Chrome 2.0, like the beta released in March, features speed improvements thanks to a new version of V8 JavaScript engine and WebKit as well as greater stability.

Google claims to have fixed over 300 bugs since the launch.

JavaScript-heavy web pages will now run about 30% faster.

Other new features include form autofill, fullscreen mode and the ability to remove thumbnails from the new tab page.

"If you're already using Google Chrome, you'll be automatically updated with these new features soon," said Darin Fisher of the Google Chrome team in a blog posting.

"If you haven't downloaded Google Chrome, you can get the latest version at google.com/chrome," he said.
