Just when you thought browsers wouldn't get any better, Google makes a surprise announcement of their Google Chrome web browser. Google Chrome is currently in Beta stage, but is downloadable for Windows users (MAC and Linux users should be able to take advantage of GC in the near future). Google Chrome is not your average web browser. It is meant to be integrated with your applications and used for more than just surfing a few websites.

One of the key features of Google Chrome, is how it handles JavaScript. There are some who completely distance themselves from the code engine, but the fact is it's here, it's continually being implemented in applications, and it is continually evolving. From my own experience with Internet Explorer and JavaScript, the situation is not pretty. Browsers freeze, memory consumption increases, and eventually, the entire operating system crashes. The joys of Windows.

Google approaches JavaScript by isolating the threads of each individual application. What this means for you, is less downtime while surfing, and less crashing.

Google Chrome's Notable Features

  • Quicker website loading
  • More effective use of internet history bookmarks
  • More independent browsing with multiple tabs
  • An overall cleaner, less cluttered browser
  • Incognito surfing for temporary deletion of cookies and history from Google Chrome's own history

Let's take a closer look at a few of the major features I used over the last week while using Google Chrome Beta (GCb)...
