Just a few hours ago, I’ve downloaded Google Chrome and give it a try using Windows XP running on VirtualBox. Interesting browser, fast and very user friendly. But I got a difficulty when I need to change the language into English (the default was set into Bahasa Indonesia, with funny translation).
I was thinking that this is a hybrid of Opera and Firefox, adopting the good parts and patch their leak. For example, something like
Paste and Go is a familiar thing in Opera. Also the thumbnail for most visited pages remind me about Speed Dial in Opera.
I love the
task manager, incognito mode, and the way they use tabs. Very handy and visually appealing.
Browser war are now getting hot with the future brand new browser from Google, named Google Chrome:
Using Webkit engine, Google is going to create a browser with a different approach. They say that all current browsers are old style while current people need a new browser that can adopt the new web generation.
For me, the best part is the usage of memory alocation for each tab. It’s very cool because I do hate to close browser with entire tabs just because one single mistake on a single tab. Please take a look at the comic to see what this browser would look like. Too bad, Windows version will be released first.
