Google Chrome

September 9, 2008

The obvious pick for last week is Google Chrome.  Windows-only for now, but still an impressive first step into the browser world by Google.  It is really really fast, so that earns the pick by itself.  I also like the home page where it shows 9 commonly visited sites with a search and bookmarks collection right there.  I also like the “Omnibar” which functions as both the address bar and search box.  The browser looks clean and the V8 javascript engine really is amazing.  I will let the comic explain more about the technology if you want to know more.
