Google Chrome Launched – Can It Beat Firefox?

by Sushant Risodkar · 4 comments

Today,watching the MTV ticker I came to know about the Google Chrome Launching.So,I thought why i don’t make a post about it and having your views about Google’s new entry.

Google announced their new open-source browser called “Google Chrome” yesterday and even more interestingly, explained the concepts behind their browser technology in a simple comic book.

I downloaded Google Chrome today morning and it installed in a flash. And first time when I opened, it gave an option of importing settings and bookmarks from my firefox.

Since you already can download a beta version of Google Chrome, which I think looks more ready than just a beta, the man can test for themselves.Here are some main points of Google’s Chrome:

  • Fast to get. Quick to get.And Not A Memory Sucker Like Firefox..
  • The start of the programme leading to a meeting with a iGoogle-like site, integrated with the history, favorites and other things which we hope to snare users.
  • Address bar is like in Firefox 3, it gives suggestions for similar pages Monday touched on, or might think fit anyway.A google search of the mini is already happening in the address.
  • Interaction should be done through the Web, rather than through the interface to the browser (remember delicious instead of bookmarks in your browser).
  • The title of the window in focus takes over the title to the entire window.
  • Chrome’s tabs are independent of one another. Meaning that if the page you’ve loaded in one tab crashes all your other tabs are fine. Again, for a guy that has dozens of tabs open in his browser all the time (many with blog posts and emails in various stages of completion) that’s handy.
  • Chrome has an “incognito” function that is pretty much what it sounds like. When you open an “incognito” window or tab your browsing is entirely secure. No stored history. No stored cookies. Nothing. I’ll leave it to your imaginations as to what that feature is supposed to be used for.

Here is how my blog Looks in Chrome:

So what are thinking about this launch?Is it going to be successful enough to beat that Firefox Bully..?

I think if Chrome is going to win, it will be at least 3 years before it has a majority share of the market, and thats only if the program is awesome, and so far there are a few bugs that still need to be worked out for Chrome to stand out.

Agreed with you. Its good but it takes time to compete with FF market. Though FF is making some great innovations in it too. Poor IE, are you alive? 🙁

It is in this day, five years ago Firefox was launched and its now celebrating its fifth anniversary. Chrome has crossed one year but the good news is chrome started to get the markets too. Its good to have chrome as browser but the only advantage with FF is it supports so many extensions while Chrome just starting to realist the dream of having extensions with it.

Short term I say No – long term I say Yes.

What I find really interesting is where chrome, android, and the other os (for netbooks?) will merge together in the future – wish I knew what google’s gameplay was, but it’sgoing to be intersting!
