What is Google Chrome?

pic_chrome When Google decided to make a browser, they wanted to completely rethink the browser, as browsing now is very different from browsing simple text web pages. Now we email, shop, pay bills, and run other large application in our browsers.Download Google Chrome.

What is different from other browsers?

Google Chrome is running each tab isolated from another, which prevents one tab from crashing another. It is also more secure, and better for the memory; when a tab is closed its memory use is eliminated.

Chrome uses a powerful JavaScript engine, V8, which makes large applications perform better.

The start page contains your nine most visited web pages, a list of recently visited pages, your favorite search engines and more.

Because it is an open source project, new features will be added, and other developers can adopt what they find useful, in their browser.

Google has made a comic on how they made the Google Chrome browser:

Google Chrome 3

Chrome 3 has a re-designed startpage (New Tab Screen), 25% faster JavaScript, an improved address bar, and better HTML 5 support.

The new design of the New Tab Screen, lets you rearrange your most visited web pages by drag and drop. You can also choose to see your most visited web pages as a list.

Chrome 3 has better HTML 5 support, including the <video> and <audio> tags, which lets you play media in the browser without any plugins.

Chrome 3 has improved the addressbar. The drop-down list which shows you suggestions as you type, now shows a small icon next to the suggestion, to separate Google search result, bookmarks, or if the suggestion comes from your browsing history.

Chrome 3 also lets you select different themes for the browser.
