Download Chrome
Chrome, the new browser by Google, uses refreshingly minimal design and combines it with advanced technology to make surfing the internet safer, faster and simpler than ever before.

One of the things that users find so attractive about Chrome is avoiding crashes. Since each tab is isolated from the others, they aren't able to crash each other as with other browsers. The windows are simple and streamlined, getting you where you want to go with a minimum of fuss.

Chrome has many great features, including the automatic importation of all the passwords, settings and bookmarks you were using in Internet Explorer or Firefox. It will also populate username and password fields for you, saving you time and aggravation. The browser will also let you make a QuickLaunch shortcut to any Web application or page, again saving you the time it takes to open your bookmarks or "favorites" and sorting through them for the right one.

Of course, searching is an important part of Chrome and Google has added several things that make it easier than ever. As well as searching the web, Chrome will automatically search the browser history as well.

Chrome is unique, exciting and fresh but still in the beta stage. Google seems to have a winner here, and will be making improvements and innovations on a regular basis.
