Google launches internet browser

Postby JoeKerr » Mon Sep 01, 2008 9:50 pm

Google is launching an open source web browser to compete with Internet Explorer and Firefox.
The browser is designed to be lightweight and fast, and to cope with the next generation of web applications that rely on graphics and multimedia.
Called Chrome, it will launch as a beta for Windows machines in 100 countries, with Mac and Linux versions to come.
"We realised... we needed to completely rethink the browser," said Google's Sundar Pichai in a blog post.

Google is to release its own internet browser in what amounts to its most direct attack yet on Microsoft’s dominance of PC software.

The launch of the browser, known as Google Chrome, will pit the internet company against Microsoft’s dominant Internet Explorer browser, which is used by an estimated three-quarters of all internet users. Google said a test version of the browser would be released in 100 countries on Tuesday.

Google toolbar is good, Google search engine is good, Google blogs are ok. Google browser? I don't think so.
