Released a couple of weeks ago, Google Chrome, Google’s new web browser has received a lot of attention. We promised you a review of the browser– and if it is better than your current Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera or Firefox — and after playing with it for a bit, we have our opinion. Hit the more link for all the details.
Firefox, Opera, Safari or Internet Explorer not gonna be able to cut it for school? Well, then your in luck because Google today has launched their own web browser called Google Chrome. Google Chrome takes some of the best of all features of those popular web browsers and puts it into an open source format, allowing users to copy the browser’s source code (the computer language that creates and runs the browser) and use it for other programs not designed by Google. The browser is available today in Beta (test, early version) for Windows XP/Vista users, and will soon be available for Mac OS X and Linux users. I’m trying it out now, and will post a First Look review once I get to use it for a little.
In the meantime, get your Google Chrome on over here (again Windows XP/Vista users only), and feel free to let us know what you think of the new browser– and if it is better than the other, bigger browsers out there– in the comments.
I, probably like some other people, see some of those cool, new, Macs and want to know how I can make my Windows look like it. Well here are some programs that are cool, easy, useful and free make your computer look and run like a Mac.
1. Safari. This is the ever popular Apple internet browser that is found on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and all Macs. It is a browser similar to the other popular Firefox and Internet Explorer 7 browsers, but adds some cool features of its own. The first of those features are a good RSS reader. RSS are either short quick versions of articles on websites or full versions of articles on websites that can be viewed without necessarily going to the exact website itself. This happens through what is called RSS feeds which are in web browsers (Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer), email applications like Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird, as well as other places and devices. What is good about Safari’s RSS reader however, is that it offers a very quick, simple, and easy way to view the feeds. Another nice feature in Safari is ability to load regular pages quicker. While this feature is only a second or two of difference in most cases, it still is cool and useful. Safari also does something else that I noticed when I used it, it displays websites cleaner with text and pictures appearing much nicer. I’m not sure why this is, but I still find it to be something that will be helpful, especially to people who are viewing the internet very often, or are using it for searching for news articles or pictures. Safari is now out of testing phase (aka Beta) and is available for free at Apple’s website here.
