Google Chrome- an addiction
For all those of you who have used Chrome, you know it is addictive!
With its most visited feature displaying a screenshots of your most visited sites not only makes your chrome colourful put also very personalized! Not even having to type a single letter you have the freedom to navigate to the sites you wish in style!
I know its been quite some time since Chrome was out and this post is “late” as a review to it! But better late than never!!!! As for me, I am totally addicted to ChRoMe and completely love the look and feel of it!
Features like the incognito window are really cool! That is what would make it a teenagers choice! 🙂 Google really knows what the users want!
Google knows speed is addictive — search queen Marissa Mayer has repeatedly said that a few hundred milliseconds per page makes a 20 percent difference in how often users type a search into Google.One of the company’s major goals with Chrome is to effectively speed up the Internet for end users.
Here are the results of a speed test where Chrome not only beat the competition against Safari, Mozilla and IE, it completely annihilated them.
Here’s the site description of the speed tests:
â€¢Â Richards: OS kernel simulation benchmark, originally written in BCPL by Martin Richards (539 lines).
â€¢Â DeltaBlue: One-way constraint solver, originally written in Smalltalk by John Maloney and Mario Wolczko (880 lines).
â€¢Â Crypto: Encryption and decryption benchmark based on code by Tom Wu (1,689 lines).
â€¢Â RayTrace: Ray tracer benchmark based on code by Adam Burmister (3,418 lines).
Chrome also came out ahead in an admittedly Google-sponsored security test. The reason: The browser automatically updates itself every few days. This means Chrome users are most likely to have the latest security updates installed.
Another question that has been of concern to most people is: Is Chrome the next IE????
Nothing is clear as yet. Microsoft is hesitant to bundle Chrome with Windows as it may give Google a monopoly over Internet as the default search engine would be Google. This is what they have to say :
“Google’s Chrome browser has a market share that rounds down to zero. Yet Microsoft plans to argue to the European Commission that bundling Chrome into Windows — an anti-trust decree the EC wants to impose — will potentially give Google a monopoly hold on the InternetThe claim seems laughable to anyone who hasn’t used Chrome. But those who try the largely unknown application almost unanimously rave about its speed and ease of use.Microsoft’s argument may seem comical, but there’s a kernel of truth to it: If Google ends up with a majority share of browser users tied to Chrome, and Google’s search engine is their most frequent and trusted destination, think of the opportunities for Google to leverage that huge group of people.”
