Google has released its new browser “Chrome” today. It is released as beta (I really don’t understand what is the meaning of beta in Google. Can you believe Gmail) for windows alone. This browser is based on webkit rendering engine. which gives web developers a big relief in rendering issues and web standards. The good feature in chrome I really loved about is each tab runs in its own sand boxed environment. When an tab crashes it only the tab and not the whole browser.
Next step was to download the browser and test it. It was amazingly fast. And really felt the browser was really light. I loved the simple and efficent GUI. Creating application out web was really smart move. There is no option for extending the browser with extension and themes. May be it is on it way.
Will Google target it like Adobe Air?
Will Google create more API inside chrome to support their web application ?
Have thousands of question rising up my mind and only time will tell those answers. But these guys are planning big time to reach more market share in web. They have already started to advertise about the new browser on Google homepage.
Will chrome dominate the browser wars by end of this decade ?????
