    "Unique, Advanced, and Visually Appealing!"

    April 2, 2010  |   By Mikon8er

    Pros

    1. Can be very fast, assuming you have a good 7,000 KBPS (7 MB) high-speed connection.
    2. Very Advanced with many of the security sheilds that IE8 And Firefox have.
    3. Generally very visually appealing.

    Many more to be mentioned!!

    Cons

    1. As of the exact minute I wrote this, I cannot seem to find the spell check and correction feature that Firefox has.
    2. The "downloads" sector of the web-browser does not let you name the file yourself before you download it, (as far as I know.)

    Summary

    Overall, If you are currently scouring the web for a decent alternative to Internet Explorer, along with Firefox and the Apple-based Safari, I would say that Google Chrome is worth a try, and it's performance in terms of loading videos on the Google-owned YouTube generally is outstanding. And if you click in the "control the current page" tab, you will also pleasently discover that it comes with several developer tools, including: a typical built-in tool that allows you to view the web-pages source-code, and a "JavaScript Console. To wrap up my review, I will say that this is a very innovative web-browser that brings yet another alternative to Internet Explorer. It is simply the typical beta testing, new interface and layout trying, and software developing Google that we know today. It is confirmed that they have also started a "beta" release of the "Google Chrome OS", that will compete with Apple Mac OS X and Windows, but will only be loaded onto solid-state, "Chrome" based hardware. Overall I will give this web browser a good 4 out of 5 Stars.
