Google Chrome

I have just downloaded a new beta browser from Google. Its called Google Chrome. Its a clean and fast browser that is streamlined and simple. Tabs are separated and according to Google, when one tab crashed, the other tabs would not be affected. It seems that Google is taking the right step by having the browser code to be open source code thereby inviting developers to contribute to its enhancements.

Here's the summarize feature of Google Chrome :
a. One box for everything Web search. Web history. Address bar. Suggestions as you type. One unified box serves all your browsing needs

b. 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

c. Application shortcuts Use web apps without opening your browser. Application shortcuts can directly load your favorite online apps

d. Dynamic tabs You can drag tabs out of the browser to create new windows, gather multiple tabs into one window or arrange your tabs however you wish -- quickly and easily

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

f. Incognito mode Don't want pages you visit to show up in your web history? Choose incognito mode for private browsing

g. Safe browsing Google Chrome warns you if you're about to visit a suspected phishing, malware or otherwise unsafe website

h. Instant bookmarks Want to bookmark a web page? Just click the star icon at the left edge of the address bar and you're done

j. Importing settings When you switch to Google Chrome, you can pick up where you left off with all the bookmarks and passwords from your existing browser

k. Simpler downloads No intrusive download manager; you see your download's status at the bottom of your current window
