In a rather interesting blog post by Philipp Lenssen at Google Blogoscoped, there's details of what's supposed to be an open source web browser maintained by Google.

As usual with browsers and "new" features, some of the things touted are already happening in Opera, such as tabs being above the address bar & a speed dial type of home page.

One of the most interesting things (at least to me) Philipp mentions is a new V8 Javascript Engine, supposedly built from scratch.

Quote:
The browser will include a JavaScript Virtual Machine called V8, built from scratch by a team in Denmark, and open-sourced as well so other browsers could include it. One aim of V8 was to speed up JavaScript performance in the browser, as it’s such an important component on the web today. Google also say they’re using a “multi-process design” which they say means “a bit more memory up front” but over time also “less memory bloat.” When web pages or plug-ins do use a lot of memory, you can spot them in Chrome’s task manager, “placing blame where blame belongs.”


It sounds a little Java'y with the talk of memory up front and virtual machine, which is a little scary though.

There's a pointer to the Google domain http://www.google.com/chrome but as Philipp mentions in his post, there doesn't appear to be anything there, yet.

It's interesting that Googles normal 404 error page looks something like this,

Attachments:
google-404.png

Normal Google 404 Error page.



However if you go to http://www.google.com/chrome which is the supposed URL the project will be later on, you get a very simple 404 response.

Code: [ Select ]
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>Not Found</TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="#000000">
<H1>Not Found</H1>
<H2>Error 404</H2>
</BODY>
</HTML>
  1. <HTML>
  2. <HEAD>
  3. <TITLE>Not Found</TITLE>
  4. </HEAD>
  5. <BODY BGCOLOR="#FFFFFF" TEXT="#000000">
  6. <H1>Not Found</H1>
  7. <H2>Error 404</H2>
  8. </BODY>
  9. </HTML>


I think it's safe to say Google definitely anticipated a lot of people looking at that address.

Is it going to be "add supported"?

I don't think anybody would enjoy that?

But I can't badmouth google, I just got a Grant through them so I'd be happy to use it. lol

I assume the big impetus for release is to get early buy in for Android. On a side note the beta is supposed to be available tomorrow so we can all give it a try, but I wouldn't expect anything ground breaking since its based on webkit (AKA just a reskinned safari).

This is my first post on the forum and first post using Chrome.

I must say, I really like it! However, I do see a few features that are in IE8 beta 2, such as the "InCognito"/"InPrivate" features, the new-tab button being on the right side of the tabs, and the darkened font for URL domains.

I wonder which came first?

After using it a bit more, I'm really enjoying it.

Random thoughts.

I was scratching my head at first because Google's own rhetoric called the browser, "more sophisticated". I think they might be referring to how completely simple the browser is.

It's not concerned with gadgets and gizmos and the like, only a simplistic browsing experience.

I find it a little ironic that it's called Chrome when in fact it's so simply laid out, one could consider it chrome-less.

The functionality and tool sets are kept succinct and clear.

The browser window itself gives away no real estate without a good reason.

The built in spell checker and HTML element inspector are nice additions as out of the box components.

I am wondering if this will really take from IE's market share. In the short term, I think more converts will come from FF and Opera.

I'm on Google chrome right now and they did not do half bad in fact this is great.
I think i will keep ff2 though i enjoy the bloodfire theme and the way Firefox works suites me very much just because of my browsing style but this is a very good browser.
Loads pages very fast.

i feel the same way grinch. the browser opens faster as well as loads websites faster. for some reason my personal site takes forEVER to load in FF but chrome is quick as a whip with it.
it also uses less memory than FF which is important to me as i'm on an old pc waiting to get a new psu, mobo, proc & ram -_- so the 900MHz P3 likes it ^_^

interestingly, each time you open a new tab it opens another instance of chrome (O_o) i'm guessing for the 'pull the tab down to have it in its own window' feature

Apart from the pain that I went through for installation (failed 4 times in 3 hour window - perhaps due to firewall at my end) .. overall very happy with the result.

Very uncluttered look and feel, you just get to see the webpage, wonder where would toolbars come and what all changes have to be made for existing toolbars to be compatible with Chrome.

Noticed a bug as well .. in address bar if you type about:% Chrome crashes (and not just the tab u typed it in.. but the whole browser -- something ecomic said - Chrome is different)

Neways, google takes another small step that shakes the world once more

I like it, nice an simple as many of you have said ... a bit bland, but it's nice and uncluttered.

One thing I dislike is there is no support (and no hint of any support) for addons and extensions. I hope they include this in the full release.

Edit: Another thing I don't like is not being able to press the scroll wheel on the mouse down and have that smooth scrolling thing ...

hahaha, i was actually going on to google this morning to look up another browser called gecko. and i saw the link to this.

can't wait till and SDK comes out, or people start making themes for it. i like it, because it is sleek, and really quick.
now i just can't wait for Android to come out, if Chrome is anything to go bye.

pubdomains - i typed about:%. Whoa. Google Chrome has crashed. Restart now. (i think the meant to put it in there, have you seen the crazy images they put in google earth?)

man, those google kids are real crazy kids.



PS - i was about to post this on the other chrome thread, but ATNO/TW locked it as i was writing.

EDIT: Just read the post above mine - i am on a laptop, and the touchscroll feature only works downwards, and the only sometimes. really annoyting

Chrome is 100% open source so it is going to be up to the community to develop add-ons and themes and all that crazy jazz. It is going to be fun to watch this develop.

I kind of miss the home button and the address bar drop down but I can get used to this.

Yet another browser to support... although it seems to not have any crazy CSS problems yet. I've only been to one page that does display probably and the issue isn't a big one.

One thing I really like about chrome is it has a really nice history window and download window.

aaaaahhh oooo Incognito....

Quote:
You've gone incognito. Pages you view in this window won't appear in your browser history or search history, and they won't leave other traces, like cookies, on your computer after you close the incognito window. Any files you download or bookmarks you create will be preserved, however.

Going incognito doesn't affect the behavior of other people, servers, or software. Be wary of:

  • Websites that collect or share information about you
  • Internet service providers or employers that track the pages you visit
  • Malicious software that tracks your keystrokes in exchange for free smileys
  • Surveillance by secret agents
  • People standing behind you
  • Learn more about incognito browsing.

You can report sites to Google using Chrome. Click the folder looking icon on the right and select Report Bug or Broken Website... adobe.com doesn't look the same in Chrome as it does in FF.

Sorry grinch, I should have mentioned that Google is sniffing my OS and directing me to the Linux mailing list page instead of just directing me to a download.

Not too sure about that one Zwirko, at ~500KB it's probably going to check my system out then phone home for files. I haven't had much luck with those types of installers. Thanks though. :)

I guess I'll just wait for the Linux version.

heheh, thats fun. i wasn't sure how long the comic was and i wanted to continue reading at home (i'm in the lib on campus), so i tried something & it worked. you can go to a specific page by executing something similar to:
Code: [ Select ]
javascript(colon) var page = 36; goPage("next");
in the address bar ^_^

Why do you say that ... I don't think so ... it's not running on an online server ... it's running locally ... for that to happen every PC in the world needs to become slower ... imo.

Hello Fellow Ozzu members,

Why do you think google released their web browser "Google Chrome". What are their intentions and what made them to produce their own web browser? I've shared my thoughts and opinions on this topic at the link below.

In the interest of saving my computer from another web browser, i will hold back from downloading this for the moment until the beta stages are over.

I have been jumping about from FF to Opera to Safari, back to FF and now Safari in the last few months and it's beginning to get a bit frustrating not settling with one. I love FF, but it has been too problematic of late hence why i have been using Safari as my main browser as i've had no problems with this.

In the interest of designing websites etc etc, how does Chrome compare to other browsers with CSS files etc etc. Like IE is a pain in the butt with what needs to be done for sites to display properly, in Safari the font seems to appear stronger than it would in FF or IE etc etc. What are the physical differences and has there been any obvious visual issues in Chrome that people have noticed so far?

I haven't noticed too much of a difference from FF in the way chrome displays web pages - they're quite similar in that respect ... I'll design a few simple CSS web pages and see how they work :)

Edit: The only difference I've found so far from FF is that Chrome doesn't like the Ozzu breadcrumbs up the top there ... Looks like what happens when the text gets too small to display correctly, indeed when I press Ctrl + in Chrome it increases and renders correctly, but eveything else becomes too large.

There seems to be a whole pile of problems with CHROME and security vulnerabilities at the moment. Here is one of them:

http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/496042

Type in "Google Chrome Vulnerability" into Google.com for a full idea of just how many there appears to be.

Remember, it is a beta release! Maybe better to leave it until a major update has been made?

You know it wont let you downloaded Java. You know. Also it has a spell check but its rubbish half the time it wont let you click on the word you want to change and the rest of the time it dose not get the spelling you want!

Mind im using it now and i got here by clicking a screen grab on its own homepage thing and it even logged me in so I like it as its good at reloading pagers very fast after updates ie not the same screen grab twice. Very good for things that change a lot say newgrounds

I already installed Google chrome in my system. It presents a sleek appearance, groups pages into easy-to-manage "tabs" and offers several ways for people to control their Internet privacy settings. It have a homepage of nine instant-access shortcut thumbnails with a sidebar of recent searches and tabs. The tabs themselves will be switched to above the window, not below it as on Firefox, and there’ll be a privacy option. Instead of using JavaScript technology, Google chrome uses onlie word processing and spreadsheet program to make Web pages more interactive. Chrome browser makes the web faster, safer, and easier.

I am using Google's new browser chrome and i am satisfied the work of that browser. It is nice and very fast compared to other browsers. It is friendly enough to handle average browsing activities without complicating the tasks, but at the same time it's powerful enough to meet the needs of more-advanced users. Chrome has many features which includes tab isolation: If a Web page causes a problem with Chrome and leads to a crash, the crash will affect only the tab displaying the page and not the whole program. Also it add a task manager that gives the user an idea of how much memory and CPU use a page is eating up, and by allowing you to kill anything that is causing a problem.
