Google has just thrown a huge spanner into the browser war with the release of their new web browser, Google Chrome. According to Google, “Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier.

Early testing seems very promising, and I have found the browser to be fast and responsive, even though it is still in beta at version 0.2. There still seem to be a few rough edges, but I would think we will see these ironed out as we see new releases.

Built on WebKit technology, Google Chrome includes some useful new features, including:

  • Address bar under each tab
  • Individual windows are in their own “sandbox”
  • Thumbnails of your favourite sites
  • One search bar for searching and typing URLs

In the next few days I plan to give a more indepth review of Google Chrome as I have more time to play with the browser. If you haven’t already, you can check Google Chrome out at

How have you found Google Chrome so far?
