In case you still have not noticed, Google had entered the web browser market by releasing their first ever web browser, Google Chrome, yesterday.
I’m always excited whenever Google launches any software, therefore I’ve installed Google Chrome immediately after reading this fascinating news yesterday even though the software is still under Beta version.
Well, what makes Google Chrome different from other web browsers?
Let me list out Google Chrome’s features that other traditional browsers don’t have :-

Google Chrome Web Browser Brief Review
Entering the second day after Firefox 3.0 was released, mixed feedback was heard. Personally, I am satisfied with Firefox 3.0, except the Smart Location Bar, or so called Awesome Bar. I don’t like the autocomplete nature of this Smart Location Bar, as it lists out the possible bookmarked site or previously visited sites while I’m typing in the address. I know the purpose is to save my time and hassle to type the whole address but it’s annoying me more than helping because I need to choose from some irrelevant results listed. I guess some Firefox users who used Firefox 2.0 before the upgrade will feel the same too.
If you are thinking of disabling this Smart Location Bar from automatically listing, do some tweaking to Firefox 3 then.
Within the first 5 days of this new version available, Opera 9.5 has received more than 4.7 million downloads. Pretty impressive I would say, but it’s just about half of the download total Firefox 3 received in 1 single day! The total download for Firefox is now surpassing 11 millions downloads worldwide.
Firefox is always my preferred web browser to Internet Explorer (IE) and I’ve been using Firefox for more than 4 years already. Today Mozilla, the developer of Firefox, has released the long awaiting Firefox 3.0!
without a doubt, I immediately grabbed a fresh copy of Firefox 3.0, installed it, and is already using it now. I’m so glad Firefox has reached another milestone by releasing this latest version with more than 15,000 application bugs fixed, enhanced security, faster browsing speed and better browsing experience. More new features are :-
- Password Manager
- One-Click Bookmarking
- Instant Web Site ID
- Full Zoom
- Smart Location Bar
I’m not sure have you guys come across this cute little fox.
Hi Everyone, I am Foxkeh.
Let’s meet Foxkeh, the mascot of Mozilla Japan! This little fox was named Foxkeh after FIREFOX and SUKE, the suffix of common boy’s name in Japan.
It was created a Mozilla Japan staff for Firefox promotion in Japan but it is not a mascot character of the Mozilla Firefox. Hence, it will not appear either in the default theme or icons of the Firefox. It’s a pity Foxkeh is not made as th official mascot because it’s uniqueness truly represents Firefox in my opinion.
Foxkeh has become more popular since its appearance in last September. Even it’s now available as a Spread Firefox! affiliate banner.
If you are not using Firefox for web browsing, I would highly recommend you to start using Firefox as your default web browser.
I bet some of you have noticed Microsoft just released the latest beta version of Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer 7 beta 2, a few days ago.
