Google Chrome...a Cocktail...

jst now tasted the features of  Google Chrome.let me pen down its review..here it goes.

Download:

1.Downloading EXE is about few hundred of kbs and it requires a online installation.

2.Like all browsers, it doesn't ask for Import bookmarks form IE,rather it ask from Mozilla to import.


Features:-A Cocktail:

1.Each tab works in new sandbox and if a tab crashes,it doesn't crashes the whole browser.. sounds similar like IE8 Automatic recovery Engine( http://selvagk.blogspot.com/2008/03/automatic-crash-recovery-beta-ie8.html)


2.Next Feature of converting a Web application into desktop is added in chrome...Sounds more like Mozilla Prism(http://labs.mozilla.com/2007/10/prism/).

3.Rendering Engine is from Apple's Web kit nor Mozilla Gecko combination of two...Hoping issues with Min-width and Height doesn't exist with this browser !

4.Cant alter the proxy settings of  browser as it depends on the IE network setting(System Setting).

5.when we open a new tab, the last opened history is shown on browser.This Is exactly same as Opera's Speed Dial

6.Its Light weight functionality is taken from Maxthon.

 Features that stand apart:

1.Javascript Engine V8 which is basically a up gradation of Apple's SquirrelFish with google's magic sprinkled on it.

2.having any online transistion or looking some sites, which u dont wanna traced by others, here in chrome has a special browser called "Incognito window".which leave no trace for the site you have visited. Gud Security approach..

In short Google Chrome 

GC=IE8(Tab recovery)+Mozilla Prism+Opera Speed Dial+Apple's Webkit+Maxthon architecture.

So a Gud cocktail ..which Google brands as a New browser.

It Bitters:

Though it has all features of different browsers,The front rendering i.e, Tab Focus and UI really looks like some animation..it doesnt gives us a feel of browser(comparing to Mozilla FF Customizable UI with Add on and skin-able browser Maxthon.) is that ,why Google guys call it as "Invisible browser" ????
