Google has just released the Chrome 17 update, which adds pre-loading to the browser. You can now have web pages instantly load when you start typing them out in the Omnibox, and Chrome will begin to understand web pages you visit every frequently and will pre-fetch them as well. This also applies to web pages Google “thinks” you will visit, so they will also pre-load to make your visits faster, per their algorithm.
Also included is download screening for .exe files. Nice stuff for a incremental update.
