a look into google chrome

so i have downloaded and install google chrome and this is what i have found….

I’ve been testing Chrome for about a week, trying out all its features.

Chrome is a smart, innovative browser that, in many common scenarios, will make using the Web faster, easier and less frustrating. But this first version — which is just a beta, or test, release — is rough around the edges. Chrome’s interface has some bold changes from the standard browser design. These new features enhance the Web experience, but they will require some adjustment on the part of users.

One of the new features of Google Chrome is application shortcuts. This cool feature allows you to create an icon on your start menu, desktop, or quick launch bar that will open directly. these can also be set to offline mode so that you can open them up and work on then with out the need of an internet connection, a feature i have not use or tested out because i dont have chrome installed on my laptop.

here is gmail running in chrome from an app shortcut

now from what i have played around with it, its a neat browser, but without the ability to use extensions and the fact it is slower that firefox .. i wont be switching anytime soon.

heres the tutorial bit ….

  1. Not bad. I’d kinda written off Chrome. But the offline functionality looks like it’d be worth the install…if my machine were ever offline.
