Google Inc has launched Google Chrome, a new open source browser intended to
create a better web experience for users around the world. Available in beta in
more than 40 languages, Google Chrome is a new approach to the browser that's
based on the simplicity and power that users have come to expect from Google
In the early days of the Internet, web pages were frequently little more than
text. But today the web has evolved into a powerful platform that enables users
to collaborate with friends and colleagues through e-mail and other web
applications and much more. Google Chrome was built for today's web and for the
applications of tomorrow.
"We think of the browser as the window to the Web, it's a tool for users to
interact with the web sites and applications they care about, and it's important
that we don't get in the way of that experience," said Sundar Pichai, VP-Product
Management, Google Inc. "Google Chrome has a simple user interface with a
sophisticated core to enable the modern web," added Pichai.
The intent is that Google will help make future browsers better by
contributing the underlying technology in Google Chrome to the market, while
continuing to develop additional features.
