I did not expect this. I fired up Google’s Net browser, Google ChromeChrome, expecting very little except a stripped down early beta with a plethora of bugs. After playing with it for a while, it’s too early to say that I’m blown away, but I must admit that I’ve stumbled onto some impressive feats which show that the team that built Chrome was intelligent, mature and forward-thinking. Here they are, in no particular order.
Google Chrome is a web browser developed by Google that uses the WebKit layout engine and application framework. It was first released as a beta version for Microsoft Windows on 2 September 2008, and the public stable release was on 11 Dec 2008. The name is derived from the graphical user interface frame, or "chrome", of web browsers. As of Aug 2010, Chrome was the third most widely used browser, with 7.54% of worldwide usage share of web browsers, according to Net Applications.
