Google Chrome: Fresh Take on Browser

The Battle of the Browsers will revive again as the new contender joins in. If you think that we have enough Internet browsers as it is, think again. Google is not going to let Mozilla and Microsoft take all the glory for themselves.

Google Chrome is ready to be released from Google’s arsenal of fast apps on September 2, 2008. This new browser from Google is designed to be fast, simple and clean, just like the Google Homepage. The philosophy behind the development of this new browser is to make things clean and simple, take away all the unnecessary stuff and let the user do the important stuff like browsing, chatting and sending emails. Google Chrome gets out of the way so you can surf the Internet or write those emails. Most of the components in Chrome is from Mozilla Firefox and Apple Webkit, but will remain open-source, and participation from community to help build this new browser is encouraged.

From Chrome’s official blog:

Under the hood, we were able to build the foundation of a browser that runs today’s complex web applications much better. By keeping each tab in an isolated “sandbox”, we were able to prevent one tab from crashing another and provide improved protection from rogue sites. We improved speed and responsiveness across the board. We also built a more powerful JavaScript engine, V8, to power the next generation of web applications that aren’t even possible in today’s browsers.

Google also takes the road less traveled in introducing their new app – this time they have used comics in introducing their new open-source browser. Not very typical way of introducing a new app but indeed very unique. The comics about Google Chrome can be found here.

For now, Google Chrome is available only for Windows but time will only tell when there is going to be a version for Linux, which I am willing to wait patiently. As for the number of choices that we have for browsers, all I can say is we can’t have too many browsers. Tell that to web developers as they have another browser to test their sites on. :D

Author’s Note:

I will update this post once the browser is released. I will also include the link to the download site as well.

The Internet from 1969

Here is a very old video dating back from 1969 defining how the Internet can be of use to normal households. The weird thing is that most of the things in the video are now possible.

Using Internet as Alternative to Malls

I am a mall rat. Wherever I go, I always make sure that I visit the malls in the area, even if all I do is window shop. Besides, I would rather buy souvenirs from the local market where I can haggle with the shopkeeper to make the most out of my money.

But the Internet has evolved into something to something not only as means of connection between computers, but into something much bigger, like as big as a mall – at least a virtual mall, that is.

You can buy anything from as big as car bumpers, to as tiny as engagement rings. Even dog collars and dog shirts are available on the Internet, if you know where to look for them. Ordering food is also possible, just fill up the form and someone from McDonald’s or Junior’s Cheesecake will contact you. Books are long available from the Internet as popularized by, where you can find books by authors like Dennis C Carey.

And it would not make sense if you cannot buy computer parts like monitors and keyboards from online stores.Whatever it is that you are looking for, it is very likely that there is someone, somewhere, selling it using the powers of the Internet. But why people like posting stuff for sale online?

Internet is Your Friend

I have been very fond of comic strips lately, spending at least an hour of my online time just browsing through pages and pages of comic strips. Some even made their way to this blog, including this one:
