Chrome launches Chrome 11 beta

Google Chrome's new icon, from
Google Chrome just released Chrome 10 earlier this month, but the historically speedy development team has already pushed another version into the beta channel. The beta was pushed out yesterday.

The biggest news in the Chrome 11 release is a new voice-to-text feature. Those using the feature can click on a button, speak into a computer’s microphone to send the audio to speech servers. If developers build this HTML5 feature into a Web page, you can transcribe anything you say.

The company has also applied its new logo to this release of Chrome, replacing the shiny, rounded logo with a flatter, matte version.

Another feature in the new release is a peek at 3DCSS for Chrome. The tool will let developers put some 3D features on their Web pages using CSS.
