Heres a rundown on the featuresTabs
Nothing special in here- apart from Google's auto-complete feature called the Omnibox. Omnibox reportedly will offer a multitude of unobtrusive suggestions,
which may include sites you had visited in the past, popular sites and displays the search engine of your choice as well. Another feature is its ability to detect what site-specific search engines you had used. For example, if you used the Techtree search for finding a specific topic, you can simply type in "T" followed by your keywords.Speed Dial: The Google way!
A speed dial like start-up is also available where you can see your most visited websites. The 9-screen layout is similar to Opera's speed dial. On the sides, you will also see options and quick links to recently added bookmarks and recently closed tabs.Incognito
Incognito is the Google term for the now famous "porn mode" which enables discreet browsing with no traces of your online activity - on that computer that is. Internet explorer calls it the Inprivate. Not much of a difference here - except that this is one feature that the other two biggies, Opera and Firefox chose to ignore.Security
On the security front, the Chrome is supposedly said to update its database of rouge websites so that it can prevent you from exposing your computer to risks involved by visiting these sites. Additionally, since all tabs are sandboxed (a security mechanism for running programs safely) the risks involved are greatly minimized.
Well, that sums it up. This was just a brief preview into what could turn out to be one of the best alternative browsers out there. If you are the impatient type and want a quick peek, have a look at some screenshots from a video grab here
. It remains to be seen if the web community accepts Chrome wholeheartedly -and just because it's from Google, it need not necessarily be the best! We'll get to know soon once the Beta is released today and we have a hands on.
