Google to Release ‘Chrome’ Browser

Google is releasing Google Chrome browser in 100 countries on Sept. 2 to take on Internet Explorer and Firefox, and make the Web a better place.

Google Chrome promises to be “clean and fast,” and run today’s complex web applications more efficiently. For instance, by keeping each tab in an isolated “sandbox,” Google claims it is able to prevent one tab from crashing another, and provide improved protection from suspect sites.

Plus, Google says it’s improving speed and responsiveness across the board. “We also built a more powerful JavaScript engine, V8, to power the next generation of web applications that aren’t even possible in today’s browsers,” reported the search engine giant.

And that’s just the beginning, suggests Google. While the beta for Windows will come out of the gates first, the company is hard at work building versions for Mac and Linux as well.

“We hope to collaborate with the entire community to help drive the web forward,” stated Sundar Pichai, Vice-President of Product Management, on Google’s blog.

More options and innovations certainly can’t hurt! Here’s a Google Chrome comic recently released by Google, which provides additional insight.
