Google today announced the release of Chrome 29 beta for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android, bringing omnibox suggestions based on “recency” of visited websites, WebRTC on Android. The company says the beta has received omnibox suggestions improvements “based on the recency of websites visited, so you’ll get more contextually relevant suggestions at the right time.”
The official Chrome 29.0.1547.22 beta changelog:
- Improved Omnibox suggestions.
- A number of new apps/extension APIs.
- Lots of under the hood changes for stability and performance.
Other web platform features in this release include:
- The resolution Media Query allows you to tailor your CSS to specific pixel densities.

- To align with the HTML spec, Chrome no longer allows cross-origin access to the window.history object.
- Chrome for Android now supports the color form input type as well as the min and max attributes for date and time input fields.
- XMLHttpRequest’s timeout property lets you set the number of milliseconds Chrome will wait for a server response. When it expires, the request triggers a timeout callback.
