People have had mixed reviews of Google’s ability to produce a good stand alone program because of their relative inexperience in making full applications. While Google excels at making web applications they have not had many offerings as far as software, so it will be interesting to see what people think.

My initial impression of Chrome is that the name does a good job of describing the program. It is sleek, and polished. Simple, yet effective. A friend of mine who has been a long time supporter of Firefox mentioned he had mixed feelings about Firefox 3.0 simply because it felt bloated. His comment was “All I need in a browser is an address bar, and a place to view pages”.

I think Chrome takes this simple idea and creates a browser that does not overwhelm users, and at the same time offers good speed and stability. Of course only long term use will tell for sure, but as it stands Chrome seems like a good offering into the browser arena.

Google Chrome Download – Google’s New Web Browser

Users Trying to Download Chrome Will Need to Wait a Little Longer

Google Chrome DownloadLooking for Chrome, Google’s new web browser? Unfortunately users will have to wait just a little bit longer before they can get their hands on the beta of this new software. On September 1st. Google made an early announcement that the new software would be available for download (as a beta) in 100 countries on Tuesday September, 2nd.

For awhile Google had a “Chrome” landing page setup for users who were interested in the software, but this page is currently down and redirects users to the main Google homepage.

For those of you who haven’t heard of Chrome it is a new web browser developed by Google who has worked closely in the past with Mozilla on the development of FireFox. What this new software means for the relations between Google and Mozilla is anyone’s guess but it is just another sign of Googles evolution into the world of software.
