Google Chrome is coming soon to a screen near you!

Later today you will be able to download what looks like a ground breaking new web browser called 'Google Chrome' in more than 100 countries. I am assuming Kenya will be one of these countries.

Google Chrome promises to be clean and fast. And it will feature the tab bar above the address bar. All of the code will be open source.

Google Chrome will probably be available from
gears.google.com/chrome
UPDATE (3 Sep 2008): Google Chrome is now available for download. www.google.com/chrome seems to work better than the one mentioned above.

The browser market seems to get a bit overcrowded now and new versions of the most widely used ones (Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari and Microsoft Internet Explorer) have been launched recently, so let's see if Google can make a difference or not.

I just downloaded and installed this new baby from Google and it seems to work fine and it seems to load pages faster as well, which would be a major advantage here in Kenya.

Glad to hear it works well. Google has not been very kind to me especially with mail and blogger. I've spread the word in the office and have a few friends hawachelewi they already have it. I'll listen to them for a few days before I download my own. But I've seen it work and it seems good.

Just discovered there's an Easter egg in Chrome: just type "about:internets" into the Omnibox (address bar) and see what happens.

Downloaded it on Friday and used it all weekend it seems faster but its still too early to tell. the issue of extensions and flash need to be added fast though.
