Google has just launched a new web browser named “Chrome” (free and open source).
They have completely rethought how a browser should be built taking into account todays needs for security and the rising popularity of web applications of which they have many.
I tried it last night – install was via a small download and then through the web – very smooth. It is very easy to use and fast. I’m really impressed by the new features especially the fact that every tab runs on its own process, meaning a problem with one web page will not freeze your entire browser – just end that tab’s process and continue browsing.
For the time being Firefox will still be my main browser but I do think Google is onto a winner here, especially if more IE users switch.
