Today Google launched their new open source web browser – Google Chrome. The beta version of the browser is available in 40 languages and is said to be a both a simple and powerful web browsing tool.

“We think of the browser as the window to the web – it’s a tool for users to interact with the web sites and applications they care about, and it’s important that we don’t get in the way of that experience,” said Sundar Pichai, Vice President of Product Management, Google Inc. “Just like the classic Google homepage, Google Chrome has a simple user interface with a sophisticated core to enable the modern web.”

Google Chrome was designed to make it easy for users to search and navigate the web for the content they’re looking for.

– A combined search and address bar quickly takes users where they want to go, often in just a few keystrokes.

– When users open a new tab in Google Chrome, they’ll see a page that includes snapshots of their most-visited sites, recent searches and bookmarks, making it even easier to navigate the web.

Google Chrome was engineered to deliver a seamless web experience for users. At its core is a multi-process platform that helps provide users with enhanced stability and security.

Each browser tab operates as a separate process; by isolating tabs, should one tab crash or misbehave, others remain stable and responsive, and users can continue working without having to restart Google Chrome. Google also built a new JavaScript engine, V8, that not only speeds up today’s web applications, but enables a whole new class of web applications that couldn’t exist on today’s browsers.

“While we see this as a fundamental shift in the way people think about browsers, we realise that we couldn’t have created Google Chrome on our own,” said Linus Upson, Director of Engineering, Google Inc. “Google Chrome was built upon other open source projects that are making significant contributions to browser technology and have helped to spur competition and innovation.”
