New WebKit for Google Chrome

All the rumors indicate that Google Chrome is exiting with new version 2.0.

Actually in Beta-version this release will include:
  • New version of WebKit, with lots of fixes and new features like full-page zoom, autoscroll, and CSS gradients and reflections.
  • New network code. Google Chrome now has its own implementation of the HTTP network protocol (we were using the WinHTTP library on Windows, but need common code for Mac and Linux).
  • Form Autocomplete.
  • Full-page zoom.
  • Autoscroll (rough implementation). Middle-click on a page to scroll the page in any direction.
A complete list of implemented features is available here
