Everyone else is talking about it, so why shouldn’t I? Actually, that’s a terrible reason to talk about it, but I will anyways.
As just about everyone who does anything with computers knows, Google has released a beta of their very own browser called Google Chrome. Currently the beta is only available for Windows, but they claim to be working on Linux and Mac versions as well. I sincerely hope this is the case as after using it for a while on both my work and home Windows computers, it seems to have great potential. Currently it has two major things going for it:
- It separates tabs into different processes. Thus, if one tab is being stupid, it doesn’t destroy the whole browser.
- It is fast. Not just any kind of fast though. Ridiculously fast. If you have the bandwidth to handle it, you will notice a huge increase in page render times.
There are other interesting things about it, but those two are the most pertinent for regular users.
