Google Chrome is a new browser from Google, that supports a single / multi process for tabs.
Jim: The only creation Google needs to do to take over Microsoft is to create an OS. Just because of Google's logo being slapped onto the OS, It will be come incredibility popular, just like Google Chrome has been.

Bob: Yeah, but anyone can take over Microsoft. Microsoft's products are terrible.

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.

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.

Google's attempt at a web browser. Several small features one would expect from Google, but overall, no better than IE or Firefox.
Google Chrome was released 9/2/08.
