Google Chrome


I'm sure many of you have heard of the many things Google is doing: creating phones, phone operating systems, computer operating systems, web browsers, maybe even competing with Microsoft via Google Docs. Point being, Google is moving from just a search engine to a jack-of-all-trades–and they seem to be doing a pretty good job of it too. So what's all this fuss over Google Chrome, Google's new web browser? Well, besides the fact that Chrome packs simplicity, speed and small size into a browser, Google Chrome also has many open-source extensions, similar to Firefox Add-Ons. However, Chrome is built to work with these extensions (in my opinion) better than Firefox is, thus making Chrome the ultimate browser: media browser, social networking browser, work browser, whatever. Yes, Chrome is new, and thus certain websites do not support it. However, as Chrome moves up in popularity, this will change. I for one think Chrome is one of the best browsers out there. Currently, I use Chrome on my Mac (the beta builds do not support extensions, see end of page for details) for social networking sites like Facebook, Google Wave (email me if you want an invitation), Gmail, plus testing out the web pages I create with iWeb and seeing how they run–so far, so good.
So, I've babbled enough about the awesomeness of Chrome. Why don't you check it out yourself? If you have Chrome for Windows, type: chrome:extensions in the address bar to view the extensions page. If you have a Mac, and are interested, get the latest Developer's (Dev) build ( and check out extensions. Chrome is awesome.
