Google Chrome Review

September 4, 2008 at 5:01 pm 1 comment

I am going to keep this short and sweet.

– Minimal interface giving more real estate on desktop screen

– Individual tabs run in their process, so if one fails it does not affect another

(But try this and see what comes up 🙂 

Type this into a Chrome tab’s address bar :%

– On startup it shows you your “most visited sites”

– Tabs can be droped onto desktop (each act as the browser)

– Tabs are grouped together, so if you open a tab from another one, it opens next to it and not at the end

– Omnibox = Search box + Address bar

– supposed to work beter with javascript sites (futuristic???)

Cons

– All tabs shown, not hidden like in Firefox

– It is definitiely slower that FirefoFirefox and Safari

Background Info
