Chrome the new browser

Published Wednesday, September 03, 2008 9:48 PM

When browser usage is tipping toward to FireFox, Microsoft released IE 8 last week, yesterday Google launched Chrome, formally stepped into the browser battlefield.

I like my IE 7 enough I did not bother with IE 8. However, I was curious to see what Chrome can do and how. I went to its download page. Immediately I was hit by an error and was asked whether to debug. I chose yes, and the following is the debugging screen:
Probably it is just me. Searching around no one complained.
What do people say about IE, FireFox and Chrome
Chrome: fast and simple. However, it lacks some key features, such as bookmarking.
FireFox: fast, secure and snappy interface. It started tab browsing, which was adopted by IE 7. The best adds-on to me is the FireBug, which provides a rich set of debugging features.
IE: IE suffers the same fate as other products in the Microsoft family. Many people has a visceral dislike about anything Microsoft. I like it and am happy to be one of the 70% of people who is using Internet Explorer.
What holds in the future?
Rome was not built in one day. Even as FireFox has gradually won over users at the expense of IE, it still has no more than 30% of the market share, Chrome likely has a long way to go.

thanks for the tips. So there is a shortcut? But how many people would know. I have no way to test, because I could not even install it.

thanks though
