Google Chrome – Google joins the browser race

Google have joined the web browser race by releasing the beta of their upcoming web browser today: Google Chrome.

Based on open source technology, the browser brings in some new ideas to offer increased robustness and speed such as a task manager for the browser so that you can monitor what sites are hogging your bandwidth, spawing a new independent process for each tab reducing memory problems and browser hangs and a completely rewritten javascript virtual machine that complies code instead of interpreting it.

I will definately be downloading a copy to try out, who knows it may actually live up to it’s claims!
