Google Chrome

Google has a new Web Browser!.. I was browsing thru the Economist that day~ and read that Google had launched a new Web Browser - Google Chrome. So, to my curiosity I downloaded it and tried it out. Currently its still under Beta version and Google claimed that:

On the surface, we designed a browser window that is streamlined and simple. To most people, it isn't the browser that matters. It's only a tool to run the important stuff - the pages, sites and applications that make up the web. Like the classic Google homepage, Google Chrome is clean and fast. It gets out of your way and gets you where you want to go.

Under the hood, we were able to build the foundation of a browser that runs today's complex web applications much better . By keeping each tab in an isolated "sandbox", we were able to prevent one tab from crashing another and provide improved protection from rogue sites. We improved speed and responsiveness across the board. We also built V8, a more powerful JavaScript engine, to power the next generation of web applications that aren't even possible in today's browsers.

This is just the beginning - Google Chrome is far from done. We've released this beta for Windows to start the broader discussion and hear from you as quickly as possible. We're hard at work building versions for Mac and Linux too, and we'll continue to make it even faster and more robust

Here's how it looks like.. looks different compared to IE/FF, features are modern, makes full use of the whole screen, and it doesn't have a homepage~ once you open the browser, it brings you to a page shown below:

So, just click on the thumbnails to access to the site. My bloggie looks like this from Google Chrome.. hehehe

Try it!!

it's funny, the more i use Chrome, the more unstable it seems to get; it crashes a lot more, can't handle sites with flash, hangs every time i close a tab... all that to say, i'm switching back to Firefox

hie Patrick, thanks for leaving a comment ^^. Mine seems to work pretty well I'm kinda satisfied with its performance, probably its still under BETA therefore its not stable yet~ just a thought =)
