Chrome: Newest Browser Project of Google

I'm trying the newest browser project of Google, Chrome and I find it very cool. Why?

First, because of it's appearance. The look is more modern, hip and very refreshing to the eye. It has less buttons and it uses special tables. Instead of traditional tabs like those seen in Firefox, Chrome puts the tab buttons on the upper side of the window, not below the address bar.

Second, the sites are very accessible. You load up pages faster than other any other browser. The browser has also an address bar with auto-completion features. Called ’omnibox’, it offers search suggestions, top pages you’ve visited, pages you didn’t visit but which are popular and more.

Another great feature of Chrome is it has a "special dial" feature similar to the one of Opera. On a new tab (without the address), you will see your most visited webpages as 9 screenshot thumbnails. To the side, you will also see a couple of your recent searches and your recently bookmarked pages, as well as recently closed tabs

Another thing that is cool about Chrome is that it has also a "privacy mode".Google says you can create an “incognito” window “and nothing that occurs in that window is ever logged on your computer.”I haven't tried it yet but it's cool to have that feature.

And what's more is that it's open source. You can download Chrome at www.google.com/chrome. Try it for yourself. I've been loving it and I'm still using it.

    I like Chrome and I am using it now. My Firefox takes the backseat in the mean time. I like speed and chrome gives it to me.

    Anyway, the incognito window should not be named "incognito" because it doesn't give you anonymity at all. It should be renamed "Privacy window" or something like that but not incognito.
