Google launches Chrome Browser

Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier.

Primary design goals were improvements in security, speed and stability compared to existing browsers. To ensure security Chrome periodically downloads updates of two blacklists (one for phishing and one for malware) and warns users when they attempt to visit a harmful site. A private browsing feature called Incognito mode is provided which prevents the browser from storing any history information or cookies from websites visited.

The beta version is available for Windows users, while Mac OS X and Linux versions are under development.  Click here to download Google Chrome for Windows
