Google Chrome is ready for you.  Google Chrome is an Internet browser developed by…guess who?? (Google!)

Chrome has been released in a beta version that now allows extensions/add-ins.  Chrome is a very fast web browser that will rev up your Internet surfing experience – and now with extensions that add so much to the experience, I highly recommend you give it a try.

There are several things to like about Chrome.  It is a tabbed browser, and each tab runs as its own “process” – so if an Internet site crashes your browser, you generally just lose the tab that your in a the time – not all the other tabs that are open.  This is a blessing!

Another great feature of Chrome is the ability to surf the web anonymously,  without cookies being downloaded, or your email address getting out there. You open up an “incognito” window to do this.

Chrome’s best feature is its speed!  It seems almost twice as fast as other browsers, but that’s just me.  You can look up the time specs, but trust me – it’s fast!

With the ability to extend the usefulness of Chrome through extensions and add-ins, I’ve now switched to it full-time, although I have to believe that Firefox and Internet Explorer upcoming versions will be hot on the heels of the Chrome features.

You can download the latest beta release of Chrome here…and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have been.

Let me know if you’ve been using Chrome, and how you like it!!
