I am a Google geek…if Google developed it I want it! I use Google gmail, Google’s zeitgeist, Google’s Page Rank, Google’s Tool Bar etc, etc, etc. If Google made a G-car I’d buy it. Now my dream has come true…Google has developed an Internet browser to compete with Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE). It’s called Chrome? And it is open-source…that means a large number of independent programmers will be constantly improving it. OK first, why leave Internet Explorer? The biggest reason…because 80% of Internet surfers use it. And since most viruses are written to attack the most computers they mainly attack IE. A couple of years ago I lost a computer to an incurable virus. After that I stopped using IE and began using Mozilla’s Firefox for my browser. I love Firefox, but I can’t wait to try out Chrome. Here are some of the features Chrome offers…multi tabs so if one tab crashes the entire browser doesn’t…and these tabs can be opened in separate windows; the address bar is now called the omnibox (I love it)…it takes search information as well as a URL; Google officials say Chrome’s script is faster, safer and more stable… and there is more and more. The chances of Chrome overtaking Internet Explore are slim. Hey, every computer comes with IE pre-loaded (except Apple of course). But it is nice to have another alternative in the marketplace.
