Among the fixes implemented along the way (from the Google blog)…
Better stability and performance of plug-ins (particularly video). Video and audio glitches were among the most common bugs fixed during the beta period. If you had problem watching videos with Google Chrome in the past, you should be pleasantly surprised with the performance now.
Bookmark manager and privacy controls. We heard you! Better bookmark features were a top request from our users. It’s now easier to switch between another browser and Google Chrome with the bookmark import and export features, and we added a new simple way to manage large numbers of bookmarks, too. We also wanted to make it even easier for you to control your browsing data, so all of the features in Google Chrome which affect user privacy are now grouped in one place with detailed explanations for each one.

The dashboard has been completely redesigned, runs much faster and is fully customizable. You’re now able to drag and drop menu items where you want them. You can choose which items you want to show on your dashboard, and which ones you don’t. Additionally, you can complete just about any task from the convenience of your new dashboard. Anything from moderating and replying to comments, or writing and publishing a new post. There are also many bulk actions you can complete through the interface (i.e. bulk edit posts).
The goal of the new WordPress interface was to maximize usability with speed.
