Happy B’day Chrome!


One year to this new kid on the block who has become a part and parcel of our life and is here to stay. Yes I am talking about Google’s one year old browser CHROME!

I was ranting about never having a crash in my blog and all the other blogs also but it seems that wasn’t to be the case when google turns ONE! Just yesterday I was trying to install a new theme on chrome. I downloaded the theme and it is supposed to get installed on its own but that dint happen. I thought the problem was that the chrome i was using wasn’t updated. Ok, so I just downloaded the newer version. What happened now is what shocked me! When I opened the Google Chrome window and typed a URL it would just not connect! This really came as a shock, I tried everything I could but had to uninstall it! Lost all my bookmarks, everything dint have a copy of any of that! I have learnt my lesson now and am sure to be using my online bookmarking accounts more regularly! There are some lessons you learn the hard way probably this is one of those for me!

Anyway whatever said and done we shouldn’t ignore the birthday boy/girl!! 😛  Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to CHROME!!!

Happy Birthday CHROME!

Lets hope with Chrome turning one year old we will have more stable versions of it with more plugins.  Google is way ahead of other browsers when it comes to speed of execution of javascript but some plugins for social bookmarking,  ad blockers etc is what we all will be looking forward to.  Here is The official chrome blog it clearly shows the superiority of Chrome.

I have an earlier post which was also dedicated to chrome here is the link to that Click here

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:
 

• Richards: OS kernel simulation benchmark, originally written in BCPL by Martin Richards (539 lines).
 

• DeltaBlue: One-way constraint solver, originally written in Smalltalk by John Maloney and Mario Wolczko (880 lines).
 

• Crypto: Encryption and decryption benchmark based on code by Tom Wu (1,689 lines).
 

• RayTrace: Ray tracer benchmark based on code by Adam Burmister (3,418 lines).
 

• EarleyBoyer: Classic Scheme benchmarks, translated to JavaScript by Florian Loitsch’s Scheme2Js compiler (4,682 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.”
