Google Chrome & Secret of name

2 09 2008

Well as you all know, Google Chrome is the new browser from Google that’s once again again heating up the internet browser space. The opensource browser is launching tomorrow in over 100 countries. I am not here to explain about the features of the browser since you can read about it in official google blog here. What I am here to tell you is about how Google still loves messing with Microsoft.

So whats the secret of the name I was talking about? The name “Chrome” is no coincidence. Chrome apparently was a highly anticipated multimedia technology project from Microsoft which was killed days before shipping. The project became a victim of reorganisation at Microsoft. You can read more about its demise here

Is this a message to Microsoft? “If you cant do it, we will”.

Hello Everyone,

I am quite surprised at comments from people saying that Google Chrome is good.

Well…if you ask me, it is not half as good as Internet Explorer yet. Sites that open well in IE dont come out well in Chrome. To state an example. Try opening any Sharepoint Site and you will know exactly what I am talking about.

I love all Google products and softwares. My comments just show how much my expectations are from the best web company in the world.

All the best to Chrome & Google.

It would be much better if Chrome has “smooth scrolling” available.

I hope they include it in the next version ;]

Hello, I think your website might be having internet browser
compatibility problems. When I look at your
site in Safari, it looks fine however, if opening
in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping issues.
I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Aside from that,
fantastic website!
