I believe Google has been very focused on the simplicity which is exactly why Chrome should always has its place in market. Let Firefox and Safari to be the 'cover it all' kind of browser, Chrome is cool with minimalism design and snappy performance on cloud computing. I believe that's part of the DNA for Chrome, and it's ultimate purpose too. Not a lot companies have the guts to take extreme route when it comes to product design, but Google stick to its focus and did a good job on Chrome, appreciate that a lot!

I've been using Google's Chrome browser lately and I've been falling in love with it. Knowing the internet is becoming more and more dependent on javascript for a rich internet experience, Google as always has taken the lead and completely redeveloped a javascript engine and named it V8.    What does this for you and me?  Gmail is lightning fast!  Facebook is lightning fast! Browsing in general is just faster.  Faster browsing = more productivity = more that you can get …

Awesome browser. Fast and lightweight when it comes to using your computer's resources. Incognito mode is great for using at work.
