Google Chrome First Glance




Google has just released their new browser named Google Chrome today. Just tried it out. It seems to be notable faster for Google Maps, Google Documents and Picasa Web Ablum. Credits should goes to the new JS engine, and maybe also the individual process for each browser tab.

According to the official announcement:

We owe a great debt to many open source projects, and we're committed to continuing on their path. We've used components from Apple's WebKit and Mozilla's Firefox, among others -- and in that spirit, we are making all of our code open source as well. We hope to collaborate with the entire community to help drive the web forward.

Hurray. As expected, Google Chrome and Firefox are relatives. But sadly enough the Blogger WYSIWYG editor seems to be buggy in Google Chrome. My first unverified guess is that Apple's WebKit added codes to the box and mess things up... Stay claim, the browser is just in beta anyway.

See whether I have time to go more in-depth into the issue and try out other features of this new member of the web browser family.

  1. should be interesting to see if Chrome works more efficiently than FireFox and IE... if it's faster than Firefox, since isn't IE, then i'll use it

  2. Yes. Since it has a new Javascript engine, there are notable improvement in performance when viewing those AJAX webpage pages like Google maps. I am using it for browsing those web pages. Yet yet there is minor bugs, I don't really mind, after all it's still in beta :p
