Google Chrome


Today Google released its new browser named Chrome. My first impression is rather positive as the interface is slick as with all Google tools, minimizing impact on the screen estate. So small is the footprint on the screen, it’s even been called the “invisible browser”. It starts up fast and provides search directly from the address bar.

Import from IE Favorites and FF bookmarks is pretty straight forward and I even managed to change the interface language in the options.

So far, no exceptional new functionality has come to my attention, but there are a few advantages, mainly the integration with Google Gears and the online tools such as iGoogle. One of the nicer things is creating application shortcuts on your desktop to make e.g. Gmail or GReader available offline.
