Chrome 11 goes beta with speech-to-text capabilities

Well, it looks like Google is unsurprisingly adding more than just a new logo to the latest version of its Chrome browser -- the just-released beta of Chrome 11 also now boasts speech-to-text capabilities. That comes in the form of support for the HTML5 speech input API, which web developers will be able to take advantage of to let folks simply talk to websites and have their speech magically transcribed to text. Also making a first appearance in the beta is support for GPU-accelerated 3D CSS, which will let developers apply all sorts of 3D effects to websites -- Blingee will never be the same, surely.
