Google Chrome, new web browser

by Adam

Google Chrome Logo

We are almost at the end of the second month of Google's shock release of its own web browser. And looking at a few of our sites that attract 20,000+ visitors a month its certainly made dent in the browser space. As you see below, almost 0.5%.

Built for speed and reliability on good old Google Simplicity!

Here are some of the cool features of Chrome:

  • Very easy to use interface with minimal buttons, allowing for full screen
  • New window tabs along the top. We've all experienced, having multiple Internet Explorer windows opened and all of a sudden, bang, crash! "IE has stopped working etc..." And you lose all windows. With Chrome if one tab goes down the rest power on!

Built for the future

"A browser that runs today's complex web applications much better" - Sundar Pichai from Google said. A lot of businesses are make the switch to web based applications (SaaS), such as CRM's system, online accounting programs etc... You can see what Google's got in mind with this one, giving the existing browsers a kick up the butt!

The Beta version

It's not all smooth sailing, as it's only the Beta release you are bound to run into minor problems when browser some sites. But trusting Google that its only going to get better from here! For us web agencies it's yet another browser we need to test in!

Future (1 year) prediction of Market share:

Internet Explorer:
Chrome: 12%
Firefox: 10%
Safari: 5%

I'm interested to know what you think?
