I hope you have heard about the upcoming browser Chrome. This comes straight from the house of the Internet God- I mean, Google! :)
If you want to download, here is the link:
As always, people are hopeful about this new browser and I noticed some negative posts about both Internet Explorer and Firefox in the Warrior Forum (nothing unusual; there is no dearth of whining people) . Well, I personally don't like Firefox because of its frequent updates. I have it installed on my machine just for testing purposes.
But I have no reason to hate IE. IE, however bad it might be, has been with me for close to four years, and I love whatever it has to offer. Nothing in the world is perfect, and browsers are also no exception. People believe that Chrome will solve all the problems that IE and Firefox have, but will their wish come true? We will have to wait and watch. :)
I only know of one thing: if ever a 'perfect' product comes out, there will be no competitors for it! And I hardly think that would ever happen!
How many SEO ebooks you have purchased are perfect? How many softwares have worked EXACTLY according to your expectations? Every product has loopholes, and someone who is able to come up with a 'patch' for these loopholes becomes the major competitor of the product!
I haven’t yet downloaded Chrome yet, for two reasons:
1. I am always wary of 'beta' stuff. The last time I installed a beta software, I had a lot of trouble removing it from my machine. Yeah, I know this one comes straight from the house of Google and for that reason, I might give it a try, but I am yet to decide on that!
From what I have heard, the stable version of Chrome will be officially released to the public next year.
2. Like I said earlier in this article, Internet Explorer has been my favorite browser for years, and I am someone who doesn't keep changing preferences every now and then. I firmly believe that if it ain't broke, don’t fix it!
If tomorrow IE breaks down completely, then I might consider switching to Chrome, but until then, I think things will remain the same!
However, even if you don’t plan to use Chrome as your default browser, I would suggest that you install this browser on your machine just for testing your websites, if nothing else! Probably I too would be using it for the same purpose!
Internet marketing is a business where we need to constantly adapt ourselves to new changes. We need to make sure that our sites are Chrome-compatible! :)
Talking of testing, here is a nifty tool that allows you to test your websites on multiple browsers:
I use it almost regularly!
The million dollar question: will Chrome be able to take away the market share of Firefox and IE completely? Experts say that it will take more of IE's share than FF's!
