Google Google has barely released Chrome 1.0, but the company is already hard at work on version 2.0 of its web browser. They released a pre-beta for Chrome 2.0, which comes with a lot of new features, including ones that should've already been in Chrome 1.0. In addition, it seems as if the Mac and Linux versions of Chrome are getting closer.

I choose Chrome because it focuses on what a browser is supposed to do: render webpages.

I'm just going to quote a previous post by myself because I feel the point bears repeating:


no...
a browser needs to render webpages AND allow you to navigate through them easily. hence the word BROWSER.

which is where things like bookmark management, tab management, "search for" in the context menu, the unsung little plugins like linky and diggler, social bookmarking plugins, rss, stumble-upon bars, mouse gestures and all the "fluff" actually matter. In getting people where they want to go efficiently.
