Google Chrome 18 Improves Graphics Performance

Not that anyone is keeping track, but the stable version of Google Chrome has climbed to 18. An irrelevant fact by all accounts. What's important is that this update comes with improved graphics performance.

Specifically, there are improvements to Canvas2D and WebGL, if that means anything to you. In layman's terms, this update allows your graphics card to help out when loading web pages (Canvas2D). It also allows for better rendering of 3D objects on a web page (WebGL).
