Google Chrome

I like this browser it’s the fastest  browser ever created. I also use IE, FF and opera but Chrome is my favorite in internet surfing.

What is Google Chrome?

Google Chrome is a web browser developed by Google and based on the WebKit layout engine and application framework. It was first released as a beta version for Microsoft Windows on September 2, 2008, and the public stable release was on December 11, 2008. The name is derived from the graphical user interface frame, or “chrome“, of web browsers. In March 2009, Chrome became the world’s fourth most widely used browser, with 1.23% usage.(according to wikipedia, but   statistics of w3c are different)

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

What is different from other browsers?

Google Chrome is running each tab isolated from another, which prevents one tab to crash another, and is also more secure, and better for the memory; when a tab is closed it’s memory use is eliminated.

Google added a more powerful JavaScript engine, V8, which will make large applications perform better.

The start page offers new functionality, a bit like Opera, with 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 browser developers can adopt what they find useful, in their browser.

Google has made a comic book presenting Google Chrome:

Here is browser statistics for today:

By March 2009 Chrome usage is only 4.2 %. I am sure this number will grow.
