Google on its official Chrome blog said,

In our new beta release, JavaScript is as quick as a bunny. With a new speed boost that we previewed in December, Chrome’s JavaScript engine V8 runs compute-intensive JavaScript applications even more quickly than before.

In fact, this beta release sports a whopping 66% improvement on the V8 benchmark suite over our current stable release.

Well the latest test by Microsoft after the releasing Internet Explorer 9 RC shows that Chrome 10 development version has lost grip on SunSpider JS.
