It all started on last Monday when i read about google "Chrome". I was fascinated by the idea of web browser from google as i am good user of google products: gmail , calender,docs,reader ...
On tuesday chrome was launched. i downloaded it from http://www.google.com/chrome?hl=en , installed it.
WWWWOOOOOOOWWWWWW , what a design , that's some great GUI . I opened a site ,, ohhhhh!! it's very fast. How did that happen ??
Google is really a great company, just see how they explained Chrome through this comic book. It's interesting to read it, you'll admire the great technology they're working over.
mmm... so now we have Chrome , how will that affect on IE and FireFox ?? That's a good question.
Chrome started already to take a great attention. Through the last few days i read lots of articles about chrome: its features, concerns , similarities with IE .... Everyone is talking about chrome now.
Here's my conclusion from what i read:
Google is very concerned about Web. That's google purpose. They want to increase the role and importance of web applications, so they made chrome , a web browser created specially to support Web 2.0 and its applications.
Maybe they wanna kill Windows . you have all you need in web applications now , so why don't you use the web as your operating system. Who knows? maybe :) .
Google is the perfect candidate as Web 2.0 browser. The architecture they made is awsome. Still there are some points we may complain about. But remember it's still a Beta version.
The most interesting thing , Chrome grabbed 1% of the browser market in the first day. Considering this chart of the browser market last month (chart from http://marketshare.hitslink.com/) , google has a long battle in the way to dominate over IE.
As expected , Sergey Brin ( Google Co-founder ) said :"probably a subsequent version of Android is going to pick up a lot of the Chrome stack."
Chrome on Android. What a mobile platform will it be :).
Google Chrome is a good experiance worth trying , even if it lacks some features. I'm sure Google guys will add more power to Chrome.
Will Chrome pass over IE and FF ? It's hard to say , but surely the 2nd browsers war has begun now.
