Oooooh I gots myself a new toy to be playing with 🙂

The new browser form Google does everything that you would expect it to do and in true Google fashion, it has a few nice little extras. For example it’s a really simple idea to add thumbnails of your most visited sites on the start up page – but it’s a really nice touch (I never could get to grip with my favourites-I have too many and they get lost in the list). Another quick favourite of mine is the ‘incognito browsing’ even though I may never use it I can see the value. Many of my friends work in organisations that don’t allow Facebook, ebay or even news sites (believe it or not) and yet don’t have the capacity to block them through employees computers – this will be useful for my friends to hide their secret browsing activities more easily. It’s great for covering up gift-shopping activities too.

Something that I had not read about prior to getting my little clicker to Chrome was the Crash control, because the tabs operate independently if one goes there is no dominoe effect on other things that you might be working on. Loving that! My favourite thing about Google Chrome is that the web page fills my screen, it’s only a small change but it really makes a difference not having those thick borders, buttons and options all over the place!

I’m yet to find a fault with Google Chrome, I know I will but I haven’t yet and I think that’s thanks to Google’s wonderful simplicity.
