This feature will help Google prerender the targeted page which will significantly reduce the time interval between hitting of Enter button and complete loading of webpage.

If a file you download is known to be bad, or is hosted on a website that hosts a relatively high percentage of malicious downloads, Chrome will warn you that the file appears to be malicious and that you should discard it.”

Google Chrome Beta is available for download. Readers are encouraged to try Chrome Beta to take their Internet browsing to a whole new level.

Google has accepted that developers need time to analyze the change, before identifying the step that needs to be taken. However, the organization is concerned about the viability of the service even when the same is being used by highest-volume for-profit sites.
