(proper noun): An overrated Web browser made by Google; praised mainly for its high speed and good security. In reality, however, it is outclassed by both its parent Chromium and its brother SRWare Iron - the main reason for its success lies within Google's amazing ability to advertise. Also has a huge tendency to start flamewars between its own users and those of Mozilla Firefox. In more extreme cases, such flamewars may also include users of Opera and Safari - or in the worst-case scenario, users of Internet Explorer as well.
User of Google Chrome: "Chrome > Firefox."
User of Mozilla Firefox: "No, Firefox > Chrome!"
(Flamewar promptly begins.)

An absolute buggy piece of shit that can't render websites half the time and crashes when you use flash.

Also every web site you go to gets sent to google.
I uninstalled google chrome today. I'm glad I purged my hard drive of that excuse for a web browser.

A browser from Google. Good design, with good ideas, well skinned, efficient and has the best feature: the auto-complete bar... with the simplest tool in the world: a keylogger.

Do no evil, but the necessary evil. By their standards.
Google Chrome: You don't have to press enter, everything that you type in the bar, stays at the Google servers with your IP next to it.

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.
