Google Browser is up! - Chrome
Google came out with the Best Browser ever made from open source software,
"Webkit" (also used by Konqueror & Safari). http://www.google.com/chrome
But its too bad that Chrome is yet to be available on Linux / Mac at this moment.
They managed to separate each tab / window process of Chrome into multiple process. Even plugin has their own separate process :)
With the new separated process, any crash on 1 window/tab can be controlled and constrained any crash into that particular tab/window without crashing on the other tabs or window. Even plugin works the same way!
This is what future browser need!
There has been claimed that some of the users are unable to open gmail or gdocs from google Chrome. As far as our testing goes, it works perfectly fine.
But we still like the "Home" button to be there on the chrome interface. Missing that features, make it awkward.
Here is a speed comparison chart on Chrome:
And another comparison:
On top of that, we think that Adobe should seriously look into fixing up their Flash engine. It is so unstable on Windows, and even worst on Linux. The version we tested were Flash 9 and Flash 10 Beta.
