Chrome launches Chrome 11 beta


Google Chrome's new icon, from chrome.blogspot.com

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.
