Google doesn't seem to fail at anything so give it 2-3 years and most TV ads will be organised online via Google. It's a good move for us viewers - it means more relevant ads.

Google have just released their Internet browser which is great news as they excel in every project they do but it's a sad day for Firefox as they will be the big loser in this. One thing that stands out to me is the program's loading time - it's astonishingly fast! Anyway, download it here.

Google's Chrome in a word: revolutionary

In short: it's a revolutionary browser. It has the potential to blow Firefox out of the water, if it gains traction with developers and gets the same third party add-ons and extensions ecosystem as Firefox, over time.

Despite being a beta, our initial impression is very positive. It's nice to see a beta browser that doesn't totally suck. Eight beers due to all the innovation and overall pleasing experience.

If you get stuck by a given incompatibility with your favourite site and its Javascript engine, your own score will surely be lower.

I'll wait until the add-ons are released, sounds promising though.

A quick question, I'm aware that browsers can be faster than others (after years of using Firefox, I see the difference when I use IE almost immediately), but how is this possible, as it utilises the same connection as the other?  Think

Meh, Firefox's Mario theme is irreplaceable so I'm sticking thanks :P

Found this:

- firefox avoids database trips for content it already has. Example, on a shopping site, with several pages for the same products, when you click page 2, only the additional products are fetched anew. All the balance data (including database data) on the page will remain constant.

- On clicking page 2, ie will keep non-database objects constant, but will fetch all database date anew

I thought it had something to do with the amount of security measures that are attached on to IE. AS ICT sucks yay

It doesn't make sense to switch from Firefox to Chrome now because there are no extensions for it but developers will be working like crazy to make their Firefox extensions work with this so it shouldn't be too long.

A Miserable Little Pile Of BULL ****!

No matter how responsive it is, how quickly it loads pages or how quickly it starts up, a lot of these things are measured in milliseconds.  As such, a few tests haven't proven it to be noticeably faster to me. The concept of separate processes for separate tabs/renderings sounds, well, sound, but it remains to be seen whether it's the sort of thing that shows noticeable benefit to the user. I'd be interested to see how it performs on less powerful hardware such as the EeePC compared to Firefox.

And the UI. Major minus points for me. I prefer browsers to look as if it's part of the operating system, not completely separate from it.

I can't see it being for me without significant changes. That's not a knock on Chrome, I'm just not their target demographic. I'd be interested to see how it fares with IE users.

I've used it and webpages load as fast as Firefox if not faster but the thing that really stands out is how fast that actual application loads up and operates, it's very impressive.

I really like the GUI as well, I'm a fan now and can't wait for the extensions. But then again, I am a Google fan and last night I went out to the shops proudly wearing my black Google t-shirt. lol

Google releases spy application

FOR MOST OF US our exact location is something we’d like to keep under wraps, yet for those who want to share it with the world, Google has come up with an added extra for Google Maps.

Google Latitude is the latest initiative from the internet search giant and is a new feature of the Google Maps application for use on your mobile device to track the whereabouts of friends, family and even enemies - he's behind you.

By using GPS tracking, your mobile device can send out a signal to let others know exactly where you are at any given time. There are, of course, some security options.

If, let’s say, you don’t wish for your spouse to know that you’re going for a quiet drink with that attractive lady in accounts after work, you can simply set your location to elsewhere.

Yet this application is not just aiding sneaky maneuvers, it is designed to let the user know if a friend is in town, or if a plane has landed safely, or even if your partner is stuck in bad traffic on the way home.

Awesome but a little scary Very Happy

I just learnt that whatever your gmail address, you automatically own all the variations of that email with 'dots' in them.

So if I registered [email protected], I also own [email protected]

Yeah, it's pretty cool because people always read my email address as "Ms Anger" when it's "M Sanger", so now I can put a dot after the M Very Happy
