The reason I went Firefox 3 on my new PC just recently is to feel the rush of having a browser that leaf through web pages at the speed of light, sadly it’s a dim lighted alley full of tumbleweed in a not-so-sunny afternoon. That’s why I feel so exhilarated when finally I have my hands over this new browser in town that everyone is frantic about—The Google Chrome.
Never mind the other features but the speed alone makes you glued to your seat and wanting to browse more web pages like you’ve never done before. Although the absence of add on and extensions makes you reminisce your old love with Firefox, I’m quite sure the Google team behind this hype wouldn’t let up this Beta version to be a Beta forever unless those people is fond of idiosyncrasy.
Google chrome’s features are clean, professional and crisp. Spotless as it may seem, it’s quite functional in every step, you can toggle tabs left and right—most useful for multi tasking geniuses out there. And for those regular Einstein of secretive world, Chrome has this incognito page where you can leave no trace of your browsing prowess for the FBI, CIA, Interpol or your mother in law to trace. Yep, cookies and registries are never recorded as you browse through incognito mode; bookmarks are never saved in that method unless you get back to the ordinary browsing page. That I think sets Chrome apart from the other browser around the Cyber World.
There is one disappointment though, no Google toolbar yet available for chrome, and how much I needed those page rank feature of Google toolbar, in short, Firefox is still handy pending the full version of Google Chrome. Most of Internet Explorer 8 and Firefox 3 features can be found in Google Chrome plus the fact that it is almost 5 times faster than the two makes it a winner.
Try experiencing clicking a new tab and you will be amazed by the number of screenshots you have recently browsed displayed on that page, so getting back to your favourite page is never that tough, plus the fact that recently bookmarked and imported from Firefox pages are also being displayed at the right column makes the Chrome more organized.
Google Chrome can also handle HTML lightning quickly and can grip dynamic content in a crash proof mode without the worry of stammering between words, not bad for a beta version.
I think the secret to the new innovation Google has employed to Chrome is the well balanced features of the browser, I mean let’s admit it everything on the Google Chrome is not original, bits and pieces came from Firefox 3, IE8 or Safari but Google team make it a point to use a weighing scale to put into equilibrium the whole process. In philosophical world, Google chrome is the Aristotle with wisdoms coming from Plato and Socrates.
