Google Chrome

Google Chrome is a browser that is making the web faster, safer, and easier to use!

A customized home page pops up by default every time you launch the browser or open a new tab. Snap shot images of your frequently visited sites and inputs boxes for the search engines appear.


This can be a little confusing at first because things are moved around. The browser has no menu bar instead both the address and the search bar are combined. The changes are fairly simple to get used to. The search history box located on the right is different from the normal search bar at the top. It does not search the Internet, but displays results from previous searches. The results show not only google, but aol and other searches done. If you use a few different search engines at once Chrome remembers them all. Keep in mind that your page history and downloads appear as web pages not as separate windows. Another interesting feature is that there is no status bar Instead the Chrome logo appears giving you necessary information. I like to keep things simple and Chrome helps me do that by minimizing the clutter on the screen.
