Google Chrome is a web browser launched on the 2nd of September 2008 by google. It uses the webkit layout engine to display web pages within the browser (developed by Apple for the Safari browser, which was based upon the KHTML layout engine which was designed for the konqueror browser). All of its features are copied from other browsers, and combining the above two statements, one can conclude that the browser has really done nothing new or initiative - despite stating that it was pushing web technologies forward. It currently provides a download link on the google homepage, which, in a fair economy like Europe may be deemed unfair use of monopoly as it is using its very high market share of web searching market to distribute a completely different market, just like Microshit did during the browser wars. Some of Google Chromes features are:

Private session: So you can look at porn and xtube without anyone having to delete your history - available on Firefox (with an add-on) Safari, Internet Explorer 8 and Opera.
Speed Dial: A list of each page you have visited most often/bookmarked etc - copied from Opera, firefox has an add-on for this.
Preview of tab: When you hover over a tab, a screenshoot of it appears, again copied from opera.
Drag a tab out of the tab bar to open it in a window - safari
Rearrange tabs: Again, all the good browsers do this.
Tabs in security zones - like in Internet Explorer 7+
Downloads a blacklist of malicious sites, just like firefox and internet explorer 7+.
As you can see there is no need for this browser.
John: I want to use the features of Opera, IE 8, Safari and Mozilla Firefox in one!
Jade: Well, get Mozilla Firefox, and download a few of the thousands of add-ons which will give you all those features, plus a good browser.
John: I guess I'd just download Google Chrome which may or may not spy on my browsing habits to use in its web-search services.

A somewhat new web browser simply designed for the purpose of watching porn in the fastest, most efficient way possible.
Boy 1: I can't believe you still masturbate with Firefox, you need to get a new browser.

Boy 2: I know, I decided to switch to Google Chrome after my mom walked in on me jerking off and Firefox's tabs froze so I couldn't turn it off.

A really fast and cool browser that beats Firefox on my 8 year old laptop. My most favourite feature is that I could type in the name of a site in the address bar (a site that I've never visited) and a list would pop down with the site's URL in there. Also the UI takes up very little space.
Go check out Google Chrome

An internet browser that's pretty good.

Wait, I think I held down "o" for too long. I meant to say:
An internet browser that's pretty god.
"Google Chrome, so funky cool and not shit."

The latest attempt by Google to monopolize the internets. Merging Internet Explorer, Mozilla and Safari, it will only be surpassed if Google makes an Operating system or phone.
Google chrome eats IE7 for breakfast, Firefox for lunch and Safari for dinner.

The best way to view the internet. Features include:
- As-you-type keywords and websites that match up to what you're surfing.
- Tabs that you can detach to make separate browsers.
- Bookmarks that appear on screen.
- A Home-page that includes: the last three labs you closed; the most often visited sites; last nine recent tabs.

Basically this is better then Firefox, and definitely better the Internet Explorer.
I just downloaded Google Chrome and was taken on a whirlwind of extreme awesomeness, absolute coolness, and perfect mind-blowingness.

Internet browser created by google. It started pretty humble and it used to crash pretty often back in the day. But as time goes by, it gets better and better. Soon will kick out firefox, safari, opera and obviously ie (you dont need to be too god to do that)

Advantages of this browser are speed & elegance in the simplicity of its UI. Requires minimal screen space and only shows the main icons a browser needs. Yet it has other buttons where you can access more complicated functions.

Chrome will be a key piece in google's OS.
Use other browsers to download google chrome and then erase them.
