Google Chrome Browser Beta Review

Updated on September 28, 2008

Google Chorme -Experience a New way of browsing

I would like to share some of my experience in using Google Chrome Beta.

Google chrome is a browser that combines a minimal desing with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier.

Google 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.

It is an Open Source Project.Google has used the open source code of Mozila Firefox and Apple's WebKit.

Now the Features.

1) Sandbox:

Sandbox is nothing but the new tabbed window as we have in other browser.

But the real advantage here is these new tabbed window are called Sand Boxes.

This sand box doesn't allow entire browser to crash if there is an issue with

a single tab.

2)New Tab page:

Opening a new tab has become very easy with Chrome. In the browser there will we a (+) sign.

To get a new tab on the same browser we can simply (+)

3)Application Shortcuts

All webpages can be converted into an application.At the top of the browser there will be an icon which will look like a Paper Scrap.

When you a drop down will be displayed. In the drop down a link called "Create Application Shortcut" will be available. If you click it will ask where to put

a shortcut. You can put the shortcut in the Desktop,Quick Launch or Start Menu.

4)Dynamic tabs.

This is a cool feature in Google Chrome. It allows you to drag the tab at the last to first or the position you need.

It also allow you to pull the tab outside the browse to make it as a new window.

5)Task Manager built on the browser.

This is an awesome feature which allows you to avoid the complete crash of the browser.

If a tab in a browser is consuming lots of process then Chrome allow you to end it quickly.

yes, chrome does have a Task Manager inbuilt. Right Click on the browser it will show you an option called TaskManager.

When you open that TaskManager it will display all the tabbed window. In that you can end the process of a Tab by selecting the tab and clicking endprocess.

6)Incognito mode:

Google Chrome allows us to browse through the required websites without leaving any traces like Cookies, history or any other traces after you close the browser.

7)Safe Browsing:

Safe Browsing allows us to browse safely. Opening a website that may harm you computer will be picked by Google and it will display an error message.

For example: If you are surfing the internet regarding the olympic games like swimming, football or basketball. Suddenly an unwanted link which could harm your computer opens then we browser show an warning message like "Visting this website may harm your computer"

8) Instant Bookmarks

Chrome allows you to bookmark the website opened by clicking a Star at the top right corner.

When you click the star it will show you the option to add it on the bookmark bars, other bookmark or a specific location.

For example: If you searching for a Sports Car or Race Car and an agent for insurance then you simply bookmark the website by just clicking at the Star

9) Password saver:

Whenever a password is typed, Chrome will ask if it can remember it. If yes is clicked it will be saved and no need of typing the password again in future.

      Google Chrome 17 has been released recently and it is more advanced than the previous web browsers, One of the good feature is the “pre-emptive rendering” feature.
