Google have released a brand-new, shiny web browser. Chrome. Currently only available in Beta for Windows users. It is, as you might expect, creating more than a shimmer across the net.
As I am a Mac user, I can’t comment on how it works, but that hasn’t stopped at least one Mac user from reflecting on it’s performance:
"Veteran Mac expert and writer Joe Kissell is among the first to report that Google‚Äôs brand new Chrome browser appears to be ‚Äúway faster‚Äù than Safari, even running in a virtualization environment like VMWare Fusion." writes Lonnie Lazar from the Cult of Mac.
Apparently it is based on the same technology that Apple’s Safari is made of, so it’ll be interesting to see how these 2 speed kings compete with each other over the coming months.
Google describe it thus:
"Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier."
Golly Gosh, anyways if you have a Windows box, you can download it now from here: www.google.com/chrome
