New Google Chrome Blog

If you are following the development of the Google Chrome browser you will want to know that Google recently initiated a new blog called “Google Chrome Blog” , in addition to the “Chromium Blog”

Google Chrome Blog

The Google Chrome Blog is intended to highlight points of interest to general users, in a way that is accessible to as wide an audience as possible. It’s where you will read about new features that have been released, find interesting tips on how to get the most out of Google Chrome, and stay plugged into the product in general. Many of the types of posts that previously would have surfaced here, such as announcements of our spell-checking improvements, will now appear on this new blog instead of the Chromium blog.

The “Chromium Blog” will continue to exist and will now focus more on things that are particularly relevant to the developer community.

I have been using Chrome and monitoring the development of the browser,  and personally I think Google is proceeding in a good direction. I currently use and test (4)-four different browsers (IE, Firefox, Opera USB, Chrome) and I find myself periodically going back to Chrome. Since Chrome went live back in September 2008, there has been 29 updates that have been focused on speed, stability and usability.

Google Chrome’s current beta release [ GET IT HERE ] features new components that you can try including form autofill, full page zoom and autoscroll, and a cool new way to drag tabs out to get a side-by-side view (see video below).

By getting on Chrome’s beta channel, you will regularly receive updates of new features as they are churned out.  To help keep you up-to-date on the development of Google Chrome, I encourage you to visit the Chrome development links on the sidebar of the blog.

    I believe, at least some of those updates included some security features. Which is good as this is a prime area of criticism…

    Relatedly (I know, that isn’t a real word) Microsoft released IE 8 today. I hope that it does better than the (beta) edition of it that I’m using on Windows 7.

    So.. you didn’t say — which is your current fave?

    TechPaul,

    Favorite browser? Well, was a full time Opera user, then switched full time to Firefox… To keep it interesting: Firefox is my primary browser, Opera (USB) on my flash drive, Google is secondary and IE (well it’s just there)…

    OK. Thank you for your reply.

    So.. you didn’t say — which is your current fave Firefox plug-in/Add on?

    I intended to add that there’s a good article on C/Net that readers interested in the “browsers wars” may want to see.
    The browser battle: Where does security fit in the evaluation process?

    i noticed chrome was the hardest browser to hack at the hack convention. i need to upgrade to the latest beta.

    G,

    Chrome will be a top contender if and when plug-ins’ (add ons’)are a browser component…

    I use it quite often…

    TechPaul,

    Thanks for the link on “The browser battle”… Security is definitely the priority, as we well know… Thank you for sharing that link with the readers.

    Favorite plug-ins (All In One Sidebar, Colorful Tabs, XMarks, Speed Dial)…

    I have to agree that the wonderful world of Firefox Add ons are what make it truly a first choice browser (and, until Chrome opts in to this ability..)

    I also agree that security when accessing the Internet should be everyone’s top priority. For Firefox users, this means (IMHO) downloading the Add ons:
    NoScript
    FlashBlock
    AdBlock Plus

    and then I add on CoolIris because I think it’s neat.

    Thanks for sharing your preferences. I like to know what other Geeks I respect are using… (“Geek” in its most flattering connotation.)

    TechPaul,

    One thing I do like about Chrome, in terms of “security”, is the sandbox effect that isolates mishaps and doesn’t bring down the whole house. The earlier link you provided hit the nail on the head with security being a priority. Really, the top players are doing pretty good; so, things will only get better in that arena (I hope). The competition makes for a good product…

    As always, thank you for your very valuable comments.

    Rick
