Google wants more, now Google Crome

Its clear that google is not going to stop, from internet market to desktop applications, now it has come with a new browser, named Google Chrome. The release was on the 2nd september 2008. It is a beta version and currently only for Microsoft windows.

The interface is cool. See the tab? The tabs are placed on the top opposite to the other browsers. Google gives motto 'minimal design with sophisticated technology'

Several websites have performed benchmark tests using the Sunspider JavaScript Benchmark tool as well as Google's own set of computationally intense benchmarks, which includes ray tracing and constraint solving. They unanimously report that it performs much faster than all competitors, including Safari, Firefox 3, Internet Explorer 7 and Internet Explorer 8. While Opera has not been compared to Chrome yet, in previous tests, it has been shown to perform a bit slower than Firefox 3, which in turn is slower than Chrome. Another blog post by a Mozilla developer comparing the Javascript engines in Firefox 3.1 & Chrome using the Sunspider test results states that some tests are faster in one engine and some are faster in the other.

The design has some vista touch. The interface is not new as you can see the 'Most Visited' on the opening of new tab is same like the 'Speed Dial' in the Opera. The intelligent address bar is not new too as you can also see it in the new Internet Explorer and Firefox.
