411 tech news: Google Chrome

9/2/2008:

For the propeller-heads out there, you might be interested that Google introduced the public beta of their internet browser: Google Chrome.

From the looks of it, it’s an intelligently designed open source platform designed more towards “web applications.” It seems to also be more crash-proof, as now one “bad tab” cannot crash the entire browser session.

I downloaded it a few minutes ago, and it worked straight out of the box, with no plugins required, and imported all my firefox bookmarks, passwords and so on. Very fast page loads as well.

You can download it here http://gears.google.com/chrome (I had trouble there) or here http://google.com/chrome.

Give it a shot and let us know what you think!

this seems like backwards thought actually. anything from microsoft i wait for it to be out for a while! lol.

i’m off of IE though, they lost me ages ago.

firefox is the way to go for sure, but google might be able to win me over.

From the fine print on installation, not an issue for most, but made me take notice:
