Google has released the Beta version of its new web browser “Google Chrome”. Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. One has to admire the true freedom of Internet with Google Admire. Google Chrome is light weight and simply browsing experience way better than any other flagship browser. It is all about simplicity without compromising on features and security. When I say features I really mean features that we need and not a blotted application with a million features we never use.

Google Chrome to me can be a perfect synonym for simplicity. No Menu bar, No toolbar, I can see 3 buttons at all for all the settings that needs to be managed.Some of the features include,

One Box for everything – Web search. Web history. Address bar. Suggestions as you type. One unified box serves all your browsing needs.

site suggestions search options

New tab Page – Every time you open a new tab, you’ll see a visual sampling of your most visited sites, most used search engines and recently bookmarked pages and closed tabs.

Launch favorite applications from your browser

Drag tabs out of the browser to create new windows, gather multiple tabs into one window or arrange your tabs as you wish – quickly and easily.

Every tab you’re using is run independently in the browser, so if one app crashes it won’t take anything else down.

Incognito mode for Private Web Browsing. No Cache No history

  1. I hesitate to use even upgraded versions of Chrome, since my last experience using it (first version) left my computer compromised; have they fixed the security issues beyond all doubt?
