Google Chrome, the Simple and Fast Web Browser by Google

Google Chrome LogoGoogle Chrome is the open source web browser developed from scratch by Google. Available in beta in more than 40 languages, Google Chrome is a new approach to the browser that’s based on the simplicity and power that users have come to expect from Google products.

Features of Google Chrome

At the first launch, you will notice that Google Chrome has a very simple user interface. It has no menu bar, no status bar, and no search bar. All you got is a window frame and a tab at the top of address bar.

What’s inside Google Chrome is the Webkit web browser engine (same as Apple Safari) and the fast javascript engine, V8. Here are some of the features of Google Chrome:

Address bar — the address bar is combined with search and history quickly takes you where they want to go in just a few keystrokes.

New tab page — when you open a new tab, you will see a page that includes thumbnails of your most visited sites, searches, recent bookmarks and closed tabs.Dynamic tabs — you can drag tabs out of the browser to create a new windows, gather multiple tabs into one window or arrange the tabs as you wish.

Crash control — In Google Chrome, every tab is an independent computer process. You can close the no responding tab and other tabs are not affected.

Incognito mode — use this mode if you want porn private browsing. In incognito mode, no track will be leave on the computer.

Safe browsing — web browsing is safe using Google Chrome. It protects you from malware (sandbox) and phishing sites. The browser continually downloading list of harmful sites from Google server to keep you protected.

    Well, it is extremely slow for me to use in my current laptop. Pentium M with 512MB of RAM installed. On the Google Chrome announcement video (on youtube.com), they said that minimum Core Duo processor are recommended to use the browser, hence I had to use back Firefox.

    I have download this browser, it is great, but like RB said, mail.live.com are not supported.

    I want to install google tool bar too, but also cannot, i guess they forgot to make compatibility to their own product.

    ya, google chrome is still not ready for main browser. It is new, simple and still in beta stage. Google Chrome does not work well with Facebook too.

    Good move Miss G. But, somethings still bother me. I would like to get warned when (accidentally) closing multiple tab. A fullscreen function should be great, for presentation. Last but not least, the search box should be at where it should.

    One thing I like about Google Chrome is that it is extremely lightweight. For example, if I wanted just to open a single website…Google Chrome is perfect for that kind of stuff. Safari takes a long time to open. Internet explorer is a complete joke, seriously. Firefox has all my tabs saved there so opening it will slow my computer down.

    Google Chrome is fast and good. But the other day I crahsed it. lol. Not a sad tab, the whole thing crashed.

    I hope that more plugins will be released soon too :)

    Unfortunatly Chrome’s Incognito mode isn’t really private. It keeps so-called “flash cookies” even after leaving the Incognito mode. So every website can still keep track on you using this technique. And other users of your computer can see where you have been surfed too.
