Chrome new web browser from Google

Google Chrome is a web browser project by Google. Chrome browser is now officially available as a beta, offering the promise of increased speed, security and usability.

The browser will include a JavaScript Virtual Machine called V8 and open-sourced as well so other browsers could include it. One aim of V8 was to speed up JavaScript performance in the browser, as it’s such an important component on the web today. Google also say they’re using a “multi-process design” which they say means “a bit more memory up front” but over time also “less memory bloat.” When web pages or plug-ins do use a lot of memory, you can spot them in Chrome’s task manager, “placing blame where blame belongs.

Tabs, which were a key innovation in Firefox, have been innovated further on Google Chrome by putting them on top. Goodger noted that Google thinks of tabs as title bars for Web pages and apps.

Google also claims that it is improving security as well since it uses a multi-process architecture that renders each tab independently. So if a user has a bad application running in one tab it won’t crash or slow down the entire browser.
