Goggle Chrome kick started a new browser war when it launched in 2008 and it hasn't slowed down since. I am Seth Rosenblatt for CNET. And today, we're taking a first look at Google's very popular web browser. In Google Chrome, speed and stability go hand and hand with regular updates to bring new features and fix bugs in a timely manner. Google Chrome syncs tabs, web apps, settings, history, bookmarks, passwords and themes across every major platform. It supports a very high level of encryption and it works with multiple Google accounts. You have cloud print so when you want something printed, you can search from the location bar. It has a very deep add-on catalogue and you've got incognito for private browsing, solid developer tools, excellent support of still in progress HTML5 and support for the Do not Track header. Chrome does have a few drawbacks. It's not quite as customizable as FireFox and it struggles with more than 15 to 20 tabs. Of course, there are ongoing concerns of Google data mining or browsing habits, but then who isn't doing that these days. Google Chrome now has about as many people using as it has Firefox, and honestly, it's hard to say which is better browser. However, if you're deeply tied to your Google services, not using Chrome is simply silly. For the look at the Google Chrome, I'm Seth Rosenblatt.
