Google has outed the Chrome 33 browser beta with several new features.

Chrome 33 Beta was released today and with it comes support for Custom Elements so that developers can create new types of HTML elements within web applications, speech synthesis has been added to Chrome's Web Speech API to complement speech recognition, and the NPAPI deprecation plans continue and will be unsupported in April.

The Chrome 33 Beta also unprefixes the page visibility API, WebFont downloading has been optimized, Blink CSS Animations/Transitions are now powered by their new Web Animations model, and Chrome now supports the latest version of the Web Notification API.

More details on Chrome 33 Beta can be found via this Chromium.org blog post. This beta release comes just a few days after the Chrome 32 release.
