Blog Redesigning In Progress

A quick review of the Google's browser - Chrome

Today most of what we do on web is not just surf website, we execuate web applications like a Gmail or using Google reader. This next generation of web applications calls for a next generation web browser and what better could it be when the big daddy of internet releases its own browser. Yes we are referring to Google's own web browser Chrome.

As per Google they wanted to build a new browser from scratch, designed specifically to be used with all the new generation of Web applications. Google designed Chrome to be more stable than other browsers, chrome is designed to be faster than the competition, particularly in JavaScript performance. Google designed Chrome to be multithreaded.

Google's browser is based on the WebKit rendering engine that underlies Safari. It runs only on Windows for now. Mac and Linux versions are in development.

To fight malware and phishing attempts, Chrome is constantly downloading lists of harmful sites. Google also promises that whatever runs in a tab is sandboxed so that it won’t affect your machine and can be safely closed. The browser has an address bar with auto-completion features. Called ’omnibox’, Google says it offers search suggestions, top pages you’ve visited, pages you didn’t visit but which are popular and more.
