Fresh toy from Google: Chrome browser

Published by alex.shapovalov on September 3, 2008 under internet, web-development  


We have enough browsers today: IE, Firefox, Opera, Konqueror, Safari.
There is a question: do we need another one?
We have a lot of problems with compatibility, and almost any web-developer spends time on tuning pages for IE/Firefox.

Google Chrome

Chrome developers made a special page describing why they started new browser.

“What we really needed was not just a browser, but also a modern platform for web pages and applications, and that’s what we set out to build.”

“On the surface, we designed a browser window that is streamlined and simple. Under the hood, we were able to build the foundation of a browser that runs today’s complex web applications much better. We improved speed and responsiveness across the board. We also built V8, a more powerful JavaScript engine, to power the next generation of web applications that aren’t even possible in today’s browsers.”

“We’ve used components from Apple’s WebKit and Mozilla’s Firefox, among others – and in that spirit, we are making all of our code open source as well.”

And made comics to describe features: [http://www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome/]

As you see we should have browser with improved speed that will be modern platform for web-applications.
Unfortunately I can’t test it now due to we use GNU/Linux in our company and developers presented only version for Windows.

If you are Windows user maybe it worth a look, and make own opinion.

    i’m willing to try it out just to see if it works more efficiently than FireFox… if it’s faster than Firefox and isn’t IE, then i’ll use it
