You probably already know that Google has launched it’s new open source web browser – Google Chrome. Why is this important? As Google so rightly points out, in online industries such as mine (web development and virtual assistance) we spend an inordinate amount of our time working inside a browser. We search, chat, email and collaborate in a browser. And in our spare time we shop, bank, pay bills, read news and keep in touch with family and friends - again, using a browser.
The new browser is streamlined and simple, clean and fast. I have divided up my web development team and half of us are using our browser of choice and half of us are testing Google Chrome. One of my developers loved the fact that the Google Chrome features were introduced in comic book form, and another was quite irritated with that format.
I found the most impressive features to be the ability to run each tab as a separate process, so if a site or action crashes one tab, the entire browser won’t crash. That is an answer to a prayer for me. It also delivers Opera-like “speed dial” with thumbnails of your most visited 9 websites.
Unfortunately at this time this browser is only available for Windows, but Mac and Linux versions will be offered soon.
