Google Chrome coming out of beta

According to Steve Gillmor on Techcrunch, Google vp Marissa Mayer has announced that the company's Chrome browser is coming out of beta, just three months after it was unveiled. This is a truly astonishing burst of speed from a company that's happy to leave headline services such as GMail in beta for years, and is most likely to indicate how keen everyone is to get the browser out there through the sort of channels that aren't comfortable with non-production quality software.
