Google is still pursuing its aggressive release schedule for Chrome, cranking out major new versions faster than you can say, "Hey, shouldn't this be a point release?" The Chrome 6 beta is now upon us, with Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux builds ready to go.
Most noticeable in Chrome 6 is the cleaned-up UI, which changes the toolbar color, removes lines around the buttons, strips the "http://" from the navigation bar, and merges the two menus into a single one—at least in Windows. (The Mac version's UI elements now look a little less out of place, too.)
Too bad some features apparently didn't make the cut. CNet News says we might have to wait until the next version for that embedded PDF reader. I can't complain about a faster, sleeker-looking browser, though.
