Google Browser

New beta web browser Google Chrome officially hit the streets. It is a browser that combines a minimal design  (as usual) with sophisticated technology. It is powered by webkit (browser engine) and V8 (javascript engine). The entire project is called Chromium and hosted at Google Code. You can also click here to learn more about Google Chrome.

Here's a list of highlight that I like about it.
  • Simplified design with unifying web search, address bar, and history to one box.
  • Show a visual sampling of your most visited sites every time you click on new tab.
  • Use web applications without opening your browser.
  • New incognito mode for private browsing.
  • Individual sandbox design for every tab.
  • Built-in task manager (Shift-Esc).
If you are impatient, try Google Chrome First Look . And there is a Google Chrome comic available online . Have fun!
