Google today confirmed that they are going to launch a new browser : chrome tomorrow. Check out the Google’s official blog here.
The web browser will compete with Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
Google has also launched a comic which describes the need and feature of the new browses.
Here’s the link to the comic http://www.google.com/googlebooks/chrome
Well, Google has already released the “Chrome” Browser for Windows Vista and XP
Download it here
I don’t know why Google doesn’t release products for Linux
Waiting for Chrome (Linux Version)
Firefox search bar is of great help. But the problem comes when one has to search in different search engines. say you have to search for IIT Guwahati in wikipedia. Now what you can do is search for IIT Guwahati in Google and then click the wikipedia link. Another option is directly go to www.wikipedia.com and search for IIT Guwahati. Yet another option is change the search engine to wikipedia in search tab of Firefox and then search for IIT Guwahati. Theres a very nice feature in Firefox 3.0 which gets you out of this situation.
Click the search tab in Firefox 3.0 and click “Manage Search Engines” . Then select Wikipedia in the list and then click “Edit Keyword” in the side panel and enter wiki in the text box that follows. Now close this “Manage Search Engine list” dialogue box.
Now in the address bar type in “wiki IIT Guwahati” , without Quotes ofcourse. Voilla! what you see is the Wikipedia article of IIT Guwahati. Similarly you can add keywords for other search engines and search directly from the Address bar.
I have added the keyword goo for Google, wiki for Wikipedia, yahoo for Yahoo!
Now I can easily search in multiple search engines.
Happy searching !
