Google has hoped on to the web browser bandwagon. Google Chrome is an open source web browser developed by Google using the WebKit rendering engine.

  • An address bar with auto-completion features called “omnibox.”
  • The V8 JavaScript Virtual Machine.
  • A privacy mode.
  • Web applications can be launched in their own browser window without an address bar and toolbar.
  • Chrome includes an automatically updated phishing and malware blacklist using the Google Safe Browsing API.
  • Uses the WebKit Rendering Engine.
  • Puts individual tabs and plug-ins into separate processes.
  • Integration of Gears.

The beta should be available tomorrow (Singapore time). Wonder how well it will stand against Mozilla Firefox.
