Yesterday Google released their first web browser and I think you should definitely try it out. Here’s why:
- It’s Smokin’ Fast! - Web pages will load significantly faster than in FireFox or Internet Explorer. You will notice a difference. I work with tons of websites everyday and I’m amazed at the speed pages are rendering. Not only this but the program loads in a flash too.
- Search or type a URL in the address bar (Omnibar) - The address bar doubles as a search with your chosen search engine. This was awkward for me for about 5 minutes. Now I’m used to it and it’s way more effective than from a usability perspective.
- Start page - When you open Chrome you’ll see your 9 most visited websites as thumbnails. There’s also a search box to sift through your past web history or view your entire history. The interface for the history page is clean and fun to look through.
Time is money and you will save both by using this web browser. There are many more features that make this offering really awesome for web users. Google built the application from scratch piecing together the best parts of other web browsers. If you are interested in learning more view these videos from Google that cover all the cool features.
Are you having good results with Google Chrome? How does it stack up against the other browsers from your experience?
