Google Chrome

Google ChromeGoogle has entered the browser marketplace with it’s open source Google Chrome.  It’s name refers to the chrome-like look of the browser.

I’ve been using it for a while now and, I have to say that, although it’s missing a few features for me, I really like it.  It allows me to close just the tab that crashes, not the whole browser.  It’s really fast — much faster than Firefox, which is my stand-by.  It does require re-learning, as the interface is much different — a lot more white space and they’ve gotten rid of some of the functionality that wasn’t used much.

There is obviously much more to this than just a browser.  Google looks at the web as our future operating system.  This browser lines up with that — it will allow applications to run within it as if they are running on your own system.

I’m looking forward to seeing where this goes.  Meanwhile, it’s fun to play with.
