Google Chrome – first impressions

September 2nd, 2008 No comments

I just installed Google Chrome.  I’ve only spent a few minutes with it, but here are my first impressions.

The browser is very clean and polished; much of the functions are hidden away and it has a Safari feel to it.  (Chrome is based on Safari)

Here’s the Browser’s User-Agent ID when run from XP:

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/525.13 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/ Safari/525.13
The most interesting feature with Google Chrome is the “Task Manager” which pin points the memory and CPU usage from your open tabs/pages and RTE/plug-ins.

The web browser race is getting interesting.

More to come.
