Google Chrome vs. Internet Explorer

Written by IT News on 9:45 PM

If Microsoft is moving into the cloud, Google is expanding to the Desktop and the Windows client. The Mountain-View search giant is on the verge of making available a beta version of Google Chrome, a browser, initially designed to integrate only with the Windows platform, but which is set to be adapted to additional platforms in the future. Not even out yet, Google Chrome is positioned as an Internet Explorer killer, far beyond what Microsoft's competitors, Mozilla and Opera have been able to do with their own products.

"This is just the beginning - Google Chrome is far from finished. We are releasing this beta version for Windows to start a wider discussion and hear from you as soon as possible. We are working to build versions for Mac and Linux, too, and will continue to do it even faster and more robust, "revealed Sundar Pichai, VP Product Management, and Linus Upson, engineering director.

At the time of this article Google Chrome bits were not available for download yet. Google will try as representatives from the company called a "fresh take on the browser," with the intention to "start early and iterate." Grounded in the desktop, and owns a large majority of both the operating system and browser markets, with Windows and Internet Explorer, the Redmond giant is really an intermediary between end-users and Google, which lies almost exclusively in the clouds.

While Google claims that Chrome will be made available "because we believe we can add value to users, while helping to drive innovation on the Web," In fact, the Mountain View Company is to make a decisive move to reduce the importance of Internet Explorer on the World Wide Web.
At the end of August 2008, Winifred Mitchell Baker, president of the Mozilla Foundation and chairman and former executive director of the Mozilla Corporation, announced that "we have just renewed our contract with Google for a further three years. The agreement now ends in November 2011 instead of November 2008, so we have stability in revenues. "

So in this context, Google and Mozilla is now obvious partner, on the same front against Microsoft. At the end of August 2008, all supported editions of Internet Explorer accounted for over 70% of the browser market, according to data from Net Applications, while Firefox came close to breaking the 20% milestone. As a newcomer, Google Chrome will start from zero, but the browser is bound to gain traction quickly, especially with Google's resources behind them.

Google Browser features components from Apple's WebKit and Firefox and is a fully open-source product. Chrome sport a new strategy for the graphical user interface, with a focus on tabs, but also functions as Omnibox, an address bar with automatic completion functionality, and a Speed Dial, privacy with the help of "incognito" windows, a new method of execution and the use of Web applications, and malware protection.

"In the hood, we were able to build the foundation for a browser that runs today's complex web applications much better. If they keep each tab in an isolated" sandbox ", we were able to prevent a tab from crashing each other and provide greater protection against rogue sites. We improved speed and availability across the board. We have also built a more powerful JavaScript engine, V8, to power the next generation Web applications that are not even possible in today's browsers, "added Pichai and Upson.
