Google Chrome Portable

Google Chrome is a browser that combines a minimal design with
sophisticated technology to make the web faster, safer, and easier. It
has one box for everything: Type in the address bar and get suggestions
for both search and web pages.

Will give you thumbnails of your top
sites; Access your favorite pages instantly with lightning speed from
any new tab. Google Chrome is an open source web browser developed by
Google. Its software architecture was engineered from scratch (using
components from other open source software including WebKit and Mozilla
Firefox) to cater for the changing needs of users and acknowledging
that today most web sites aren’t web pages but web applications. Design
goals include stability, speed, security and a clean, simple and
efficient user interface.

A fresh take on the browser

At Google, we spend much of our time working inside a browser. We
search, chat, email and collaborate in a browser. And like all of you,
in our spare time, we shop, bank, read news and keep in touch with
friends - all using a browser. People are spending an increasing amount
of time online, and they’re doing things never imagined when the web
first appeared about 15 years ago.

Since we spend so much time online, we began seriously thinking
about what kind of browser could exist if you started from scratch and
built on the best elements out there. We realized that the web had
evolved from mainly simple text pages to rich, interactive applications
and that we needed to completely rethink the browser. What we really
needed was not just a browser, but also a modern platform for web pages
and applications, and that’s what we set out to build.

So today we’re releasing the beta version of a new open source browser: Google Chrome.

On the surface, we designed a browser window that is streamlined and
simple. To most people, it isn’t the browser that matters. It’s only a
tool to run the important stuff - the pages, sites and applications
that make up the web. Like the classic Google homepage, Google Chrome
is clean and fast. It gets out of your way and gets you where you want
to go.

Under the hood, we were able to build the foundation of a browser
that runs today’s complex web applications much better . By keeping
each tab in an isolated “sandbox”, we were able to prevent one tab from
crashing another and provide improved protection from rogue sites. We
improved speed and responsiveness across the board. We also built V8, a
more powerful JavaScript engine, to power the next generation of web
applications that aren’t even possible in today’s browsers.

This is just the beginning - Google Chrome is far from done. We’ve
released this beta for Windows to start the broader discussion and hear
from you as quickly as possible. We’re hard at work building versions
for Mac and Linux too, and we’ll continue to make it even faster and
more robust.

We owe a great debt to many open source projects, and we’re
committed to continuing on their path. We’ve used components from
Apple’s WebKit and Mozilla’s Firefox, among others - and in that
spirit, we are making all of our code open source as well. We hope to
collaborate with the entire community to help drive the web forward.

The web gets better with more options and innovation. Google Chrome
is another option, and we hope it contributes to making the web even
