*Update – The link to download Google Chrome Beta Can Be Found Here!*

So today is the day a new open source web browser is released.  Aiming at taking the functionality of firefox and making it better.  I for one will be one of the millions that is downloading it at 2 o clock to see what its all about.  This project has been on the table since 2004 when google pulled its development staff off of firefox and began with a fresh start aiming to correct the problems that IE and Firefox have long since ignored when it comes to web-browsing.

The main feature of this new internet browsing window is that each tabbed page is running it’s own process, so this should completly make the crashing browser a memory and only allows the single page that is corrupted to crash.  Pretty sweet, as often times on firefox, when one page crashes, the whole browser crashes.  It’s not really a big deal, but if it happens normally to you, then this is certainly the option to go for.

Also another step up to the browsing features Chrome has is the Webkit engine, made famous by Apple’s Safari and various nokia cell phone browsing applications.  Also, the “omnibox” is finally out of beta mode(which can be seen on the google home page, when you search you get the amount of searches and it autocompletes for you) and the final mode will enable a smart search filter for you and create results even faster, and more accurate to ease the searching for the consumer.

All in all I am highly excited and will be giving my take on this browser after it has been downloaded and viewed upon by the masses!  Enjoy!
