Google’s new web browser Google Chrome has now been released, and is available to download.
I have had a few hours of playing with Google’s new browser, and I have to admit I am fairly impressed.
Installation was a breeze and it was easy to copy all my settings and bookmarks over from FireFox, the setup only took a few minutes, I suspect it would take a lot less, but I was importing a lot of data from FireFox.
The homepage which shows your most visited websites is quite useful, as standard the Chrome browser is setup to use a new tab page as the homepage, which shows you all your most visited websites, if you are like me and have a custom homepage this can be annoying, but it is very easy to change it to your custom homepage, and the good thing is that when you open a new tab, you can choose to have access to your most visited pages, which gives you the best of both.
Overall on the brief amount of time I have been using Google Chrome, I like it, it will be interesting to see how it is developed and whether it can take on FireFox and IE.
If you wan’t to download the Google Chrome Browser to try out yourself here is the link.
