The web browsers war is hotter than ever. The main competitors in the Internet browsing race (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Opera) are trying to implement as many features and improvements as possible, with which they seek to attract more and more users. Of course, this isn’t easy and the Internet companies know it, so they’re incorporating cutting edge technologies to their programs in order to become the best web browser in the market. And people at Google are working very hard to achieve this goal and they are sharing some evidence of their efforts.
2011 web browsers “race” Google Chrome is located in the third position (behind Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox), with an estimate of 12% of the market share. In addition, Chrome is the only Web browser to show growth patterns in its worldwide usage during the last year. There are several explanations for this and one of them is its speed. Google Chrome is one of the fastest web browsers out there. How come? Let’s see it.
First, let me clarify that there are several aspects to consider while testing a browser’s speed, such as its startup, the amount of time it takes to load web pages or to conduct a web search and its responsiveness to the requests of a variety of web applications. These attributes were tested by the Google team with very impressive results which you can check out in the video below.
Of course there are other elements which contribute to Chrome’s speed and one of the most important ones is the Omnibox. This is the combination of both the address bar with the search box, a component which helps you find quicker the contents you want. How does this work? You simply have to begin typing the URL or the term you wish and the Omnibox will provide you with accurate suggestions of web contents you might be looking for. Besides, the auto-complete feature will show the desired URL after a few keystrokes.
So, if you’re looking for the best Internet browser out there, you should consider Google Chrome, a fast alternative with a great performance and a wide variety of functions. Try it now, you surely won’t regret it. And while you are downloading it, check another video.
