Just downloaded the newest entrant in browser market – Google Chrome. So whats the difference Google is making by launching their own browser in such fierce compeition between arch-rivals Microsoft and friends Mozilla? 

Here are some pointers on the Google Chrome website:

Google Chrome is a Open Source browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier.

  • One box for everything – Type in the address bar and get suggestions for both search and web pages.
  • Thumbnails of your top sites – Access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from any new tab
  • Shortcuts for your apps – Get desktop shortcuts to launch your favorite web applications

OK, but the ultimate question is WHY? – there is an answer for this too: According to Google, we spend most of out online time in a browser – search, chat, email, blog, bank, catch up with friends, read news, follow sports.. all with a browser. So in order to make our lives simpler, Google brought us this Chrome – On the surface its simple and straight,  under the hood, there is a strong browser that runs complex web apps. Each and every tab is an isolated ‘snadbox’ that prevents the other tab from crashing and provides protection from rogue sites. There is a very strong and new JavaScript engine, V8 to help pages load faster.

Well is it fast enough?

hmm.. I cannot really guarantee that, so far I have experienced a lag in the working of the Chrome. But I cannot really say that given the speed of my internet connection 😦

Why dont you try it and let me know: Get Google Chrome
