Google Chrome Web Browser

Google chrome has a fast operating speed with a very simple interface in which it displays it’s tabs and a long input box that functions as address bar and a search bar as well. One outstanding feature of chrome is that the tabs in Chrome run as seperate processes i.e each tab is a independent process and due to this browser continues to remain live even when one of it’s tab crashes, thereby increasing the browsers stability. So the next time if one of your tab crashes then you don’t need to bother about other ones if you are using Chrome. Also the tabs can be easily dragged/grabbed to anywhere on the desktop.

Also in chrome you can select ‘incognito’ mode if you want to prevent the browser from recording your browsing details in it’s history and any other file. So this is some sort of stealth surfing. Now another cool feature in chrome that worth a mention is Chrome’s task manager with which you can view and manage the tab processes. This tab manager feature is similar to windows task manager. Also with Chrome one can create desktop shortcuts to the on-line applications which he can manage like any other desktop application.

Now coming to its drawbacks, we noticed that Microsoft’s Silverlight doesn’t work with Chrome. Also we noticed the Chrome’s inability to identify the RSS feeds automatically. So this what we observed in Chrome and we hope that google will fix up these bugs as soon as possible.
