By Siti Syameen Md Khalili GOOGLE has announced the availability of its open source browser Chrome, which is designed to make Web browsing faster, easier and more secure.

By Troy Wolverton Chrome, Google's shiny new Web browser, has some eye-catching features, but I'm not ready to trade in Firefox for it. I downloaded Chrome last week, when it first became available. I haven't run any benchmark tests on it, but my impression is that it's generally about as fast as Firefox, which is my everyday browser. However, I had a hard time figuring out how to do simple tasks like printing in Chrome, found it more difficult to search sites other than Google and was...

I've been testing Chrome for about a week, trying out its features and using it side by side with Microsoft's latest explorer version, IE8, which...

By STANLEY A. MILLER II Google's new Internet browser is named Chrome, but it certainly isn't a shining star among ways to surf the Web. In releasing the program in an early beta version last week, Google said it wanted the concept of a Web browser to vanish. With a more invisible browser, Google says, people can shift their attention from the menus and borders of the browser and instead focus on the Web pages and online applications they are using. And although Chrome's interface is...

By David Pogue Does the world really need another Web browser? Google thinks so. Chrome, its new browser, was developed in secrecy and released to the world Tuesday. The Windows version is available for download now at google.com/chrome; the Mac and Linux versions will take a little longer. Google argues that current Web browsers were designed eons ago, before so many of the developments that characterize today's Web: video everywhere, scams and spyware, viruses that lurk even on...
