Google Chrome Browser with Multi-Process Design, Tabbed Browsing and Integrated Search

Google Chrome which is a new Open Source Internet Browser from Google itself. The Google Browser (Codenamed “Chrome”) will be based on the existing rendering engine Webkit which will include Google’s Gears project. A special tab-based browsing is included by Google’s new Browser. The tabs here are put on the side of the browser window and not below the address bar like in other browsers.

This newly integrated search and address system called Omnibox will replace the individual address and search boxes and offer search suggestions, popular pages and history pages. The Google browser runs today’s complex web applications much better than other browsers available. One tab is prevented from crashing into another by Google Chrome Browser By keeping each tab in an isolated “sandbox” which provides improved protection from rogue sites.

For security purpose, the Chrome shall automatically download a list of dangerous sites in the background and hence protect users from phishing and malware websites. There will be a privacy option similar to Internet Explorer 8 In Private mode with whose help no record of visited sites or searches shall be stored on your computer. It will have a homepage with the speed dial option similar to the one found in Opera 9, and the 9 most visited websites will be stored on the home page with screenshot thumbnails indicating for each site.

A JavaScript Virtual Machine called V8 will be included by the browser which will speed up JavaScript performance in the browser. Google Browser will be using a multi-process design which means a bit more memory up front but over time also less memory bloat. Google shall shortly be releasing the beta of the Google Chrome Browser for Windows, the Mac and Linux which are also on the list.
