Any time you say something is the best, dominates, or (for all you video game players/8th grade guys) pwns something you will probably take some heat. But like all those fictitious television grandma’s say: “If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.”
I made the switch to Google Chrome as my main browser about a year and a half ago and have not looked back. What sold me? The ability to search google inside the browser…that is what sold me.
Let me show you:
Not only was that an amazing feature (coupled with googles ability to instantly show you search results) but the speed of Google Chrome was hands down better then any other browser out there, even Internet Explorer (sorry Mom).
And last but not least, Google Chrome has showed the most progression with HTML5 and CSS3. Don’t know what I am talking about, check out this experiment with HTML5 and Arcade Fire found here.
I tell you all of this for one reason, Google just released a new version of Chrome yesterday and added some new features that I wanted to show you.
I use Google Chrome, but I know it is not perfect. It does have one major draw back that I have found. It does not have the ability to work with Firebug. This is a major hold up for me considering that I use this tool daily. But if you are not a firebug user, or do what I do and just open firefox when you need to use firebug then I think Google Chrome could be a great browser for you to start using.
PS: And if you need even another reason, 60 minutes can now be a feature on your browser…amazing.
