hrudu <3 google chrome.

I like Google Chrome.  It’s perfect for leisurely surfing the net over breakfast cereal.

My favorite features are the Create Application Shortcut, separate process per tab and Incognito Windows — plus, I also like how the interface deals away with the clutter.  (And yet I persist to add a bookmark tab.)

Of course it’s far from perfect — it’s virtually impossible to eliminate ALL the bugs in any piece of software; harder even, to predict unexpected inputs from probably millions of users.

Will it take over Firefox?  Too early to tell.

Regardless: people will continue using whatever browser they’ve grown accustomed to — and maybe, some of that will switch over to the Chrome side of the fence.  There’s really no need for hateratin’ on something that gives people a choice.

I still use Firefox 3 for work.

What do you like/dislike about it?  Leave a comment with your bug encounters or favorite feature.

google browser / groovle.

The Touchgraph Google Browser is a neat little tool that shows the connections between sites via Google search in visual format.

Check it, sites linked to the keyword ‘yehey.com’. (It requires a Java-enabled browser though, so yours might crash.)

Check it — I’m loving the new site Groovle.

An image-host + Google = customized search site! (Just for the main page though.)

It allows you to upload an image from your computer to set as a background for a Google search. This is one of those “why didn’t I think of that?” ideas. (Did I mention that they have pre-selected image backgrounds, just in case you don’t have any nice photos on your computer?)

Does it make net-searching any more efficient? No, but it does add a nice personal touch to it.

Check my custom Coke Groovle page.
