Google have released Chrome 15 and 16 to beta and dev channels respectively. Just a week after the first stable build of Chrome 14 hits the sticky webs of the Internet, Google throw more versions into the mix. Available for Windows, Mac OS and Linux, Chrome 15 beta brings a redesigned New Tab page that makes it easier to manage your apps, bookmarks and most visited sites. Chrome 15 includes the ability to drag and drop apps to rearrange them, create new sections with custom names and delete apps by dragging them into a trash can on the bottom right of a page.

Navigation between various sections such as Most Visited, Apps and Bookmarks is easier and Chrome will now remember your selection the next time you open up a new tab. On top of the new whiz bang additions, Chrome Web Store items can now be installed inline by their verified site, Omnibox History can now be synced alongside your other browser data with Google Sync and the Javascript Fullscreen API is enabled by default.

 

Chrome 16 on the other hand (only available on Windows and Mac OS) enabled the long-awaited multi-user feature by default. This allows you to switch between various in-browser user profiles. The pre-release beta also consists of an updated V8 engine (3.6.4.0) and various bug fixes.
