SPEEDY: The next version of Google Chrome will sport a staggering 47 per cent speed increase

Google Chrome is the most popular web browser on the planet.

But the vast majority of the changes won't hit your machine until September – when Google plans to release the stable version of Chrome 53.

Those who want to take advantage of the performance improvements on OS X and Windows right now can download Google Chrome's beta app, Chrome Canary, currently on version 53.0.2766.0.

Chrome will allow Flash Player to run on a select number of websites, including YouTube, Facebook, Yahoo, Twitch and Amazon.

However Google is now more partial to HTML5, thanks to the fast load times and low power usage offered by the rival technology.

Elsewhere, a rival browser recently promised to extent your laptop battery life by 50 per cent when compared to Google Chrome.
