Google made the beta version of Chrome available for download this morning, after previously releasing this [somewhat broken] online comic to explain what makes it different from all other browsers. Chrome features a very stripped down interface with no top bar for the "File," "Edit" etc. menus. The program looks sleek, but flatter than the famed Mac aesthetic. Under the hood, Chrome takes a page from operating systems by compartmentalizing the activities going on in different browsing tabs. Similar to the way Windows or Mac OS runs different programs at once, Chrome runs Java or Flash or whatever other system discretely, allowing users to close a single tab that has crashed rather than having to restart the entire browser. Like Firefox and Mozilla, Chrome is open source, so users will be able to develop add-ons and improve the stability of the program. Additionally, the URL bar is also the search bar, and when something is typed into the box, Chrome gives both likely Google search and URL results. And of course, Chrome has an "incognito" mode (a.k.a. porn viewing mode) where the browser doesn't record any history of the sites visited or the passwords entered.
