Chrome 15 released with... improved start page

Users can page between the application shortcuts and page thumbnails by clicking an arrow or by using the navigation bar at the bottom of the page. They can also create multiple pages for the application icons.

The ability to “pin” a thumbnail to the grid is no longer available, but it’s possible to drag a thumbnail to one of the application pages. Right-clicking an application icon allows users to specify whether the app should open in a regular tab, a pinned tab, or in full screen.

Alongside these changes, Google also overhauled the Chrome Web Store. The design has been greatly simplified with a design that feels more application-like. The main content area displays a grid of installable extensions, applications, and themes.

It will dynamically load more as you scroll down. A sidebar on the left lets you search or filter by category, while a navigation bar at the top shows bread crumbs indicating your current location in the navigation hierarchy. It’s a good experience using the new browser i must say, its worth using.

The new version is currently being rolled out to end users, but it can also be downloaded manually from Google’s website.
