Google Chrome for All

Google Chrome logo

These days, peoples talk about a new member of Google’s software collection and new browser called Chrome. And, not a common and usual browser, but “a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier”. I’m just going to talk what I feel when I use this browser.

First, I was impressed with small size (475 kb) of the installer. I know then, that the installer doesn’t include installation files. So, when installing, the setup will download installation files from Google’s server. Second, it’s easy of setup and bookmark importing. All I have to do for importing Firefox bookmark is only by running setup itself.

One other thing attract my taste is about speed. Doing a short download and upload test on speedtest.net give a highest result than I ever achieve by use of firefox, ie or opera. Chrome was on third place in eating resources after Firefox 3 and Opera 9 though it still didn’t defeat IE7. A small feature that I like first is paste and go option when you right click on address bar, like Opera. Besides that, I enjoy its easy side of search. Type a keyword at address bar and enter, it’ll show you a result page of a search engine you prefer, which you can set it before in options for default search. Next, you can inspect element of a webpage you visit. Not only view a page source, but it show a hierarchical structure of a web page such html element and styles.

Though it has bugs (I’m sure they’re fix some of them yet cause today I got a notification for update Chrome) it is worth to try. Or to really use it for your everyday netting activities. One thing I want it better is a temporary status bar that doesn’t show a full link when hovering pointer on a link. I think, a product by Google should display or easily give access to PageRank which also a Google “product”. Last, Chrome logo should be better, and hotter, and unique! You can read about that logo here.

From here, I can predict that this very young browser will be used by great number of internet user around the world because it’s easy, clean and the most important, fast. Of course there’s still tons of homework for Google to continue develop this new toy.
