Google releases "Chrome"
Google's highly anticipated browser, Chrome, was released today (Friday, December 12).
Akin to Google's search engine, Chrome is aesthetically simplistic. However, looks may be deceiving. Chrome is exceptionally fast and by all preliminary accounts, it is extremely secure.
Google's developers went to great lengths to avoid building just another browser. The evolving nature of the web was the impetus for Chrome; Chrome was built to accommodate progressively intensive web-based applications without sacrificing speed and security.
Chrome has added to and improved upon many features of current web browsers. For example, Chrome has adopted the "tab" feature (as seen in other browsers), but when a tab in Chrome becomes unresponsive, the tab can be closed while maintaining the browser session itself.
In an effort to share ideas with developers and receive crucial feedback within the ever-changing web landscape, Chrome's coding is open-sourced.
As of now, Chrome is not available for MAC users; production continues on the MAC platform.
