An anonymous reader writes: Google first released Chrome 2 beta mid-March, featuring updated WebKit and V8 engines and minor nice-to-haves but otherwise no major new features. Two months later, Google is proclaiming this beta release a finished 2.0 product. Being an avid Chrome fan, I honestly expected more from Chrome 2. This release should have been called Chrome 1.5, at best, although speed gains and bug fixes make it worthwhile upgrade. However, motivation behind Chrome 2 is primarily the marketing one, rather than enhancing the user experience with substantial new features.
