Google Chrome, new browser on the internet
If you have yet to try out the new browser around, brought to you by Google, it’s still not too late.
Try it out. I’m quite impressed Download it here: Google Chrome
Or if you’d like to preview it first, you can learn more from Google Chrome’s website from the ‘Learn about Google Chrome‘ link.
I especially think that their Dynamic Tab feature is cool:
Just drag a tab out from the window and voila, it becomes another window itself. Cool right.
Yeah, but I don’t do that always, I wonder what’s the use of having another window when you can just use as a tab.
Each of the tab is a process in itself, hence it actually takes processing power and memory for each tab as opposed to the IE or Firefox browser.
The advantage of it, is of course the ‘Crash Control’ featured that is mentioned in the official website, whereby when a single tab crashes, you will still keep the others running!
A bit about the team who built Google Chrome.
Lars Bak who used to work with Sun U.S. it said, went back to Denmark so that his daughters could be educated in his native country. Realising his talents, Google gave him a call to work on Chrome.
Bak set up shop in an old stable on the property and began hiring local talent. When the team grew larger that the old stable cannot accomodate, they moved to Aarhus University.
The office at Aarhus University doesn’t offer any of the perks that Google is famous for, such as free haircuts and gourmet meals. But living in the Danish countryside and commuting on his bike to a job with one of Silicon Valley’s most successful companies is all the reward he needs, Bak says.
Quite a nice story there, and Google sure knows where to find great talents to produce the most useful tools for everyone.
Will Google find me? Hehe…..
