Chrome – the Google Browser

September 4, 2008

Every time Google does something, it becomes best of the web, they did search, maps, ads and now Google has introduced their free browser called “Chrome”. It’s being promoted as a sleeker, faster, safer and reliable alternative, but for now its little hard to decide what effect it will do on Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla and others.

Let’s take a look at chrome features which you will notice at first glance.

Dual purpose address bar.


Enter the url to visit the site, or just type in a keyword and you will be directed to the search engine results. You don’t need to open in a new window every time when you want to search. In that ways , Google automatically the default search engine for all the chrome users.

Thumbnail previews and quick history access.

Chrome displays your recently visited pages in sophisticated thumbnail previews and you can also access detailed history in side pane, and if you don’t like that you can use incognito mode for private browsing.

Add pages as application links.


You can directly save links to web applications as a link on your desktop, start menu and/or quick launch bar.

Easy Download

Chrome provides a very useful download accessibility and status updates within the browser window.

Apart from all that, Chrome has some new features for developers too. But what you will miss is the standard menu bar from IE and Firefox, chrome tends to be sleeker by removing that.

Well, for now just enjoy Chrome and see what it does for Google Web Business.

    yes, I like it too, very much. It certainly has a few problems though at the mo. I notice certain sites where I need to input some text(for instance, comments .. like this one!) don`t actually work yet do in Firefox.
    Funnily enough, the ability to utilise a toolbar of choice, like “Stumbleupon” is not easy either.If it was`nt for Firefox I would not be at your site now!!
    I only hope these sort of niggles get addressed as obviously Chrome is still only in beta at the mo…..

    Thats very true.
    For every new browser, add-ons become a new problem. I used to browse with safari but it doesn’t supports Stumbleupon toolbar and you also cant share your bookmark with Mozilla, IE and others.

    Let see how chrome behaves.

    I was wondering rather i should download it or not. Maybe I will at least try it out. I use Opera so hopefully it will work.

    You should definitely install it, you might like the sleekness and minimal interface style.

    Well, for sure there will be some bugs and issues, but its worth giving a try.
