Google Chrome Browser

Previous Next

Google Chrome is a free, open-source web browser developed by Google.

What is Google Chrome?


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.

Download Google Chrome.

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:


What is new since the first Beta?

It took Google 100 days from the release of the Beta version to the full version. In these 100 days Google improved the browser, listening to requests from the users.

Video is more stable. Users had some problems rendering videos in earlier versions of Chrome.

Improved bookmarks managing. It is now easier to switch between Chrome and other browsers with new import and export features.

Even faster JavaScript. The V8 JavaScript engine is up to 50% faster than earlier versions.
