If you are a big fan of Google, like I am, here is some exciting news…Google released their very own web browser, called Chrome, yesterday (Sept 2, 2008).   I had a chance to install it on my computer and my first reaction was WOW!  This was one of the best web browsers I’ve ever used.  It definitely gives Google browser competitors,  Mozilla Firefox 3 and Internet Explorer 8, a run for their money.

Google Chrome captured my interest from the moment I ran it.  It was visually very clean and intuitive.  I also noticed how fast it was as soon as I navigated to my first web page.  I loved how easy it was to import all of my favourite bookmarks from Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer.

After using Google Chrome for the last couple of days, I found three impressive features…

1.  Browse securely

Google Chrome is a highly secure web browser.  Anytime I visited a website that Google considered dangerous, I was warned before entering it.  This helps prevent certain web sites from acquiring sensitive information (phishing) or installing malicious software (malware) on my computer.

2.  Browse privately

Google Chrome has a special option called “Incognito mode” that allows you to surf the Internet privately without leaving a history behind on your computer.  This is useful in cases where you don’t want another member of your household to see which pages you’ve been visiting, for example, when planning a surprise birthday party, engagement ring shopping, etc.

3.  Browse reliably

Google Chrome was designed with today’s web surfers in mind.  Most people open multiple tabs while surfing the web, but if you load a page that hangs for some reason the entire web browser crashes and you lose all of your open tabs.  This doesn’t happen with Google Chrome since each tab is independent…if one crashes, the other ones are not affected.
