Can Google build the Ultimate Browser?

By Joe | September 2, 2008

Google announced the launch of their own web browser, Google Chrome.

Google says they have “designed a browser window that is streamlined and simple.”  Their trademark simple interface has been an enormous boon to thei progress of their search engine, making them #1 in the search space.  For those of us trying to learn how to make money online, optimizing for Google is essential.  Perhaps this new browser will contain features to assist in that optimization process.

Google claims that Chrome will be “a browser that runs today’s complex web applications much better.”  It will also offer better protection by “keeping each tab in an isolated “sandbox””  This will prevent attacks on the contents of one tab from crashing the entire browser.  With “improved speed and responsiveness across the board”, Google Chrome promises to be a challenger to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Mozilla’s Firefox.  In fact, Google representatives claim that Chrome has “a more powerful JavaScript engine, V8, to power the next generation of web applications that aren’t even possible in today’s browsers.”  That’s quite a claim and I am interested to see it’s implementation.  Google has also followed Mozilla’s lead by making Google Chrome “open-source” which will allow developers to extend it and build their own plug-ins for it.

In order to explain Google Chrome, they’ve put together an online Comic Book which I found quite interesting.

Recently I’ve begun using Mozilla’s new browser,  Flock which touts itself as “The Social Browser” but I’ll be very interested in seeing the new Google Chrome
