Google Chrome Is Now Two Year Old

Google Chrome has become a two year old baby of Google. It managed to make many changes to the field of online browsing within this short span of time. It is wonderful what time can change. Google Chrome distinguished web browsing to a newer level of thoughts.

It was on August 2008, when Google Chrome did come to exist when JavaScript was 10 times slower and HTML5 support wasn’t an essential feature in modern browsers. All browsers have come a long way in the last two years and the web has become much more fun and useful.

Google Chrome is much different from most high ranked web browsers. Chrome was first launched for Windows and then moved to other OS’s like Mac and Linux and provided more faster and efficient browsing experience. More over it is simpler and safer across all these three platforms.

Its sleek look is an additional feature. Chrome contains browser themes, which can be changed to make your browser look attractive. Side by side view is the feature that attracted me most. This is absent in most of the top ranking browsers. There are now more than 6000 extensions in Google gallery to enhance the user browsing experience.

Security is a major concern for many browsers and Google continues to extend the security features to make user browsing more secure. Chrome’s Safe Browsing mechanism serves as a warning to the user if he/she is about to view a site that contains hosting malware or suspected of phishing.

On the day of second anniversary of Google Chrome, they released a new version of the Chrome with more advanced features. Chrome is now three times faster than it was two years ago on JavaScript performance. Google developers combined the two menu’s in Chrome into one and moreover adjusted the color scheme of the eyes to be easier on the eyes.
