Google Chrome

Writing about web page http://www.google.com/chrome

Chrome is Google's browser, made available for download early September although it's beta (forever?). I've used it, pretty fast but does not seem to be as skillful as Firefox. My contention is that Chrome and Firefox will merge some time. Acquisition is self-contradictory in the open source world but mergers may make sense, even if it's very difficult.


Here's a content analysis of what Chrome purports to be:

Application oriented, built from scratch to be more stable, starts, downloads and runs Javascript faster, more secure, has a simpler interface, designed like an operating system (multi-process instead of multi-thread), testing supported by Google infrastructure to cover most frequently used web pages, rock solid product, uses the same open source platform with Android, designed for fully fledged Java applications, full text search on web history, a new approach to default home page, incognito mode, removing the browser look when using applications, isolation of plug-ins as much as possible, continuous download of phishing and malware sources, open-source based improvement of standards for improving the web experience, capabilities for developers, relationship with Mozilla and Webkit projects.
