Introducing Google Chrome

Today Google launched their own browser: Google Chrome. Google Chrome was designed to make it easy for users to search and navigate the web for the content they’re looking for.


The best bits?

    1. A combined search and address bar quickly takes users where they want to go,

    2. When users open a new tab in Google Chrome, they’ll see a page that includes snapshots of their most-visited sites, recent searches and bookmarks, making it even easier to navigate the web.
    Google Chrome was engineered to deliver a seamless web experience for users. At its core is a multi-process platform that helps provide users with enhanced stability and security.

    3. Each browser tab operates as a separate process; by isolating tabs, should one tab crash or misbehave, others remain stable and responsive, and users can continue working without having to restart Google Chrome.

    4. Google also built a new JavaScript engine, V8, which not only speeds up web applications, but enables a whole new class of web applications that couldn’t exist on today’s browsers.

    5. You can browse pages ‘Incognito’ which lets you browse the web in complete privacy as it doesn’t record any of your activity and discards cookies. Ideal for those people using shared computers or those who don’t want others to know what they’ve been viewing.

At the moment it’s only available for Windows users but in the coming months, Mac & Linux versions will be released. I’m currently using Chrome since downloading in a few hours ago and it is ultra fast, faster than any browser right now; even Firefox. I love the fact that you see screenshots of your most visited pages along with your recently closed tabs & recently bookmarked items.

Download it here: Google Chrome. So what do you think about it? Like it? Will you make the switch from Firefox, Safari or Internet Explorer?
