"Google Chrome: the browser for pros"
Many extra and nice functions
Minimalistic, beautiful and very well working
still less customization options in comparisment to Firefox or Internet explorer
I've been using Chrome since it's beta release and still using it hapily every single day.
THIS is how a browser should look like! i realy find it shamefull how utterly bad and failing IE 7 and below was.
First of all: chrome is FAST, realy fast!
All benchmark tests show Chrome is the fastest browser and this is realy noticable.
Also a noticable new function in chrome 10 is 'instant'.
What this basicly does is load your webpage before you even typed the URL.
In earlier version of chrome i only had to type "y" and press enter to visit youtube.com (which is visit every day).
now i only have to press y and youtube instantly loads!
it realy is that simple and it work very well.
Chrome looks nice and minimalistic.
after all, browsing the web is about the content of the webpage, not the browser itself!
i can still remember in the good old windows xp+IE6 days where people had more browser and toolsbars filling their screen than actual website content!
The best about chrome is yet to come: the feeling.
not only does it feel very fast, trustable and responding but it is very nice to work with.
one of the first unique function of chrome, which was in the beta, is the ability to switch tabs.
if you have 2 chrome windows, with both 2 tabs, you can easily move one tab from the one to the other window.
chrome offers so much smaller and bigger functions, as a whole it is close to perfect.
lastely i would like to talk about the option and custimazation.
if you are used to the wide possibilities of customization in Firefox and Internet Explorer this is kind of a bummer...
Though chrome offers the basic features, and some extra's (like google sync, instants etc.) you can do much more with Firefox.
This is not a problem at all though, chrome still offers all the basic and advanced customization options you would need.
if you are still reading this after the review, or if you are just reading the last sentence i can recommend you one thing:
TRY GOOGLE CHROME!
download it at google.com/chrome and install, it takes about 30 seconds and a few clicks.
i am sure most of the people who take the effort to try Chrome will permanently stick to it.
try it and feel the chrome feeling of web browsing anno 2011
