Google Chrome – Yet another browser enters the arena.

Wellp, I’m sure everyone’s heard, but in case you haven’t, we have another competitor for Mozilla Firefox and Internet explorer.

You can download Google Chrome at google.com/chrome.

Some of the neat features include:

  • one bar for searching AND typing in urls,
  • a very skinny tab and title bar combination,
  • a set of commonly used pages immediately viewable when you open a new tab,
  • independently-run tabs…that is, there’s no way for one tab to crash the entire browser,
  • Google’s new V8 JavaScript engine,
  • and use of WebKit to render webpages.

Here’s a quick picture in case you’re a little interested, but not interested enough to install it.

Google's new browser, Chrome.

    There’s a lot of talk centering around the EULA. Some interpret it to mean that Google wants rights to whatever passes through the browser.

    True. Wow…intense stuff.
    I wasn’t able to view the link you sent though. Is something wrong with the Gizmodo site?
    There’s no styling.
