Google is going to launch its browser “Google Chrome”

Ya you are hearing correct, now the internet search giant Google has finally made its much-rumoured entry in the browser space. After the latest releases by Mozilla (Firefox 3) and Microsoft (IE 8 beta 2), here comes Google browser Chrome.

Google's Browser Chrome

Google's Browser Chrome

Designed to better handle video-rich or other complex Web programmes, Chrome poses a tough challenge to browsers designed originally to handle text and graphics. Google calls the move “a fresh take on the browser” and said that it will be introducing a public trial for Microsoft Corp Windows users starting September 2.The software, which is in beta, will be distributed for free to PC users in over 100 countries via Google’s blog. The Internet search leader is also working on versions for Apple Macintosh and Linux users.

Lets take a look at the various features of this browser:

1.Special Tabs:Instead of traditional tabs like those seen in Firefox or Internet Explorer, Chrome puts the tab buttons on the upper side of the window, not below the address bar.Web programmes can be launched in their own dedicated windows.This will definitely change the look and feel of this browser in comparison to other browser.

2.Speed Dial:As a default homepage, the browser offers a “speed dial” feature, similar to the one in Opera browser. This gives users a view of their most visited Web pages in 9 screenshot thumbnails.Similarly, users can also view some of their recent searches, recently bookmarked pages and recently closed tabs.

3.Privacy Mode:Like IE8 Beta 2, Chrome also comes with privacy mode or porn mode feature. This mode lets users create an “incognito” window where “nothing that occurs in that window is ever logged onto your computer.”This is a read-only feature with access to one’s bookmarks or favorite sites.

4.Address Bar:The browser has an address bar ‘omnibox’ with auto-completion features. It offers search suggestions, top pages that a user visited and pages he didn’t visit but are popular.The omnibox (“omni” is a prefix meaning “all”, as in “omniscient” – “all-knowing”) also gives suggests searches. The browser’s search blank keeps a track of keywords in a users’ previous visit, allowing one to type in, say, “cellphone” to pull up any web pages he visited recently that pertained to cellphones, say Nokia.

5.Security:For safe browsing experience, Chrome will regularly keep on downloading a list of harmful sites. This is the Internet search giant’s attempt to fight malware and phishing attacks.Google also promises that whatever will run in a tab will be filtered so that it doesn’t affect user’s machine.However, users who install plugins may loose this security feature.

6.Multitasking:The browser supports multi-tasking. Just like in a typical operating system each application is given its own memory and its own copy of global data structures. Applications will launch in their own windows so that if one should hang or crash it won’t affect the others.This will also prevent the whole browser from crashing because it’s essentially been partitioned off.

8.Java Script Virtual machine V8:Google Chrome has a new engine for loading interactive JavaScript code, dubbed V8, which is designed to run the next generation of future Web applications. V8 will speed up JavaScript performance in the browser.

Now lets take a look at the today’s semifinal, Emilio, a two-time Pan-American Champion, was clearly the better boxer on view with his quick footwork and reach. To Vijender’s credit, he fought gallantly to carry the bout right into the fourth round, though the portents were clear that the Cuban had the edge by the end of the third round.Vijender, who conceded a 0-2 lead in the first round, fought back brilliantly in the second round to reduce the margin to 3-4. But Emilio came back strongly in the third round and scored three points to take a big lead of 7-3.In the fourth and last round, Vijender tried his best, but the Cuban made sure he stayed in the lead with his passive movements. A warning to the Cuban fetched the Indian two more points, but Vijender could not really launch himself and went down 5-8.

Vijender’s bronze is the third medal in what turned out to be the best Olympics for India. Last week shooter Abhinav Bindra gave the country its first ever individual gold while wrestler Sushil Kumar won the bronze Wednesday.
In the last I would like to congratulate Abhinav Bindra,Sushil Kumar,Vijender Singh their families and every Indian on this great success of Indian Trio.

On the other hand,former world record holder Asafa Powell came fifth as six of the eight finalists finished under 10 seconds, a record for the Olympic final, which also equalled the 1991 world final in Tokyo when six men also finished under the 10 second barrier.After winning the race Bolt said “I came here just to win and I did just that. I didn’t even know I’d broken the world record until I did my victory lap”.Now he is mainly concentrating on my two races coming up that is of 100 and 200m double. Meanwhile Dix, also an Olympic debutant, came on strong in the final metres to overhaul Powell, who lost out on fourth place to surprise package Churandy Martina of the Dutch Antilles.Powell admitted he had run out of steam.”My legs died on me. I’m not sure what happened. I’m happy for Usain. I really wanted to get that gold medal. I wasn’t ready for the big stage yet,” he said.

Now in the last I would like to congratulate Usain Bolt and his family on his wonderful victory.

The 23-year-old American phenomenon, who had appeared invincible as he set six world records in winning his first six golds at the Water Cube, displayed the sheer force of his will as he made up a deficit of more than half a second in the final lap to win in 50.58sec with Cavic second in 50.59. The two stood stock still and staring until the starter called them onto the blocks, but at the finish it was Cavic who blinked, missing out on gold in 50.59.”When I saw the 50.58 and the 50.59 and I saw the ‘1’ next to my name, that’s when I sort of let my roar out,” Phelps said.As Cavic reached for the wall, Phelps gambled with one more stroke.”I actually thought when I did take that half stroke, I thought I had lost the race right there, but I guess that was the difference in the end,” said Phelps, who added he didn’t realize how close it was.

After disqualifying from final Rathore said “I did not read the targets too well and paid the price. I worked hard for the last four years but things just did not go my way.I have not been in the best of form of late but I think my score was enough to reach the final at least. It was a difficult day but I shot well, in fact there were quite a few brilliant shots“.From the starting of the round it is seen that Rathore facing some difficulty in in reading the target.Rathore feels very rued for his not qualifying for the finals and said I was in no way affected by an pressure. To be honest, pressure rather helped me stay focused. Last two months I did not score very high but I think I should have at least made it to the finals.

Now after this billion indian hope dies.Now we all pray to god for the best performance, for the rest of indians players in Olympics 2008, so that Indians once again feel proud.
