This is in addition to my article "Download Google Chrome Browser, its awesome ", Just few hours back Google has launched an awesome enough browser to the World of Web. I would like to say that this browser is going to compete other browsers in the World of Web. I have downloaded the same from this location – http://tools.google.com/chrome -and checked some features of this browser, I can say it has got many good new features that cannot be seen in other browsers like Firefox3, Microsoft Internet Explorer and other browsers.
1. Task Manager (Shift+Esc): Crash Control
Below is the screen shot of this awesome feature, Task Manager (Shift+Esc) :
From the above feature, you can easily stop/End process of the Tabs which you have opened, I think this feature help developer a lot in debugging and running the code successfully without disturbing other tabs which are opened. Not only that you can view the memory of how much each tab is taking and the CPU effort has well. And more interestingly, if you click on "Stats for nerds" it will show consolidated stats of the same, this is really awesome and unique feature I have ever seen before.
2. New incognito Window (Ctrl+Shift+N):
Here "incognito" means without revealing one’s identity. This is a new feature which we will not see much handy in any other browsers. The websites which you see in this window will not appear in history that is website links or other instances like cookies won’t appear in your browser history or search history. This feature will not affect the behavior of other people, servers, or software. If you would like to know more info about this feature, then just press Ctrl+Shift+N on your keyword
3. Gather Multiple tabs into one window:
As we all know Google takes more care about the users usability, they have introduced one awesome features like you can drag out the tabs to create a new window, and you can gather multiple tabs into one window and can arrange them as you need depending on your priority.
4. Safe Browsing:
Google automatically warns you if you are about to visit any malware or any other unsafe websites. Check out this feature, this is not new but good enough feature we can say. This feature will warns you by flashing an alert message like "Error Messages and Alerts: ‘This is probably not the site you are looking for!’ ".
5. Instant Bookmarking:
As we know bookmarking places a vital role in storing your favorite website address, and I would like to give one suggestion to Google that, right now bookmarks are stored locally (In the system’s memory) this feature only will be seen in this system only, if a user bookmarks any favorite website, it should open up a window of GMail or so asking for username and password and can save the same bookmark online. If you guy’s introduce this feature, it will helps developers and users a lot in saving some time. I think you might be introducing this in next coming releasing.
6. Import Bookmarks and Settings:
You can import your bookmarks from your other browsers very easily like from Internet Explorer or Mozilla etc., not only importing bookmarks, we can also import Browsing history, Saved passwords and even Search engines. You can import all these in a single click…..
Again I can this very awesome enough, when you want to download a file / zip file / lets say if you want to save an image from a web page, it will show up an download icon towards your chrome browsers left bottom and towards your right you can see a link called "Show all downloads…" and when we click on this link it will open a new tab with all the respective downloads which you have downloaded. If you want to view the destination of the file then in download tab window click on "Show in folder" it will take you to the destination folder.
8. Create application shortcuts…
You can create a shortcut of your favorite website page and can save the same to your Desktop / Start Menu / Quick Launch Bar for your future reference, I think this is a new feature which Google has introduced, when we click on the respective shortcut icon which you have saved it will open that application in a separate new window with awesome features… Amazing!
9. Find option:
If you want to find any word in your respective webpage, press Ctrl+F then towards your top right corner one find text box will scrolls down and also this provides us to see the previous and next options which has been shown using up and down arrows.
10. Developer Options:
I think, I have covered most of the awesome enough features which Google has introduced in New Chrome Browser, download the same at this location – http://www.google.com/chrome/?hl=en and if you have any valuable feedback on the Google Chrome Browser let the Google Team know the same – http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/request.py?contact_type=feedback
