Google Did it Again

Before I get on to the main tech subject for this week, I have ended up in...drumroll please...Michigan.  I will probably end up in Mexico next week, but for now here I am.  It was a long, five hour drive, but we got here (I'm here with the software guy).  Oh, and I'm still waiting for Laura B. to give me the Trivial Tuesday category for this week.  Now, on to the Tech Monday post. September 2, 2008 was a big day for the Internet.  This was the day that Google introduced us to Chrome, a new, faster browser.  I downloaded that day and have been using it since.  Like Firefox, Chrome has tabbed browsing, but Chrome starts faster and uses less resources.  It also has the "New Tab" screen with the most frequently visited sites and your bookmarks in a sidebar.  Most of all, Chrome is an improvement because of the dual purpose, address and search bar and no bottom status bar both of which increase the overall amount of Internet real estate.  The only real downside at the moment is that it is not supported by all of the major plug-ins, like the Java console.  All in all, I like it and highly recommend it.  It's worth every penny of the FREE price.
