Google Chrome Vs Internet Explorer

by Abhinab Choudhury on April 21, 2012

There was a time when people did not know any browsers other than Microsoft Internet Explorer but now the times have changed. Google Chrome came as a surprise package for every browser enthusiasts. It has all the security feature which Firefox can brag about and additional features for design and customizations. Let us find out how the Internet Explorer started losing the game and how Chrome made the tables turn.

Internet Explorer Vs Firefox

Way back in early 2000, the first challenge was put forward to Internet Explorer from the open source browser – Firefox. Internet Explorer Vs Firefox was seen as the next big hustle as it made people think about why stick to something which has failed to adapt to the changing environment. Internet Explorer has not seen any major change to the interface or working structure since IE v6. May be they did bring in newer versions but it had nothing which appealed to the mass audience. On the other hand Firefox provided many tweaks and custom options to its users to suit their mode of working.

Introduction of Chrome

By the late 2000 it was almost clear that users needed better looking browser with greater sense of security and customization. No soon Google came up with Chrome from behind the curtain. The initial dev build were full of bugs and errors but it attracted swarms of developers from all across the internet community. Being open source and getting support from the Google developers Chrome started to recover fast. By dev version 4 it had already hijacked significant amount of market share. [click to continue...]

Google Gives First Look of Its Chrome OS

by Chrome Blog on November 20, 2009

Google announced in July this year that they were working on a new Operating System, Google Chrome OS and today they released its source code and also outlined some of its features and what keeps it apart from the other operating systems.

google chrome os

Pricing, Release Date & Speed

Though, Google released the source code of their Chrome OS, a finished and complete Google Chrome OS would be available for the general consumers only after a year from now. It is interesting to note that Google wont be providing its OS to be downloaded for installation on any computer, instead it would run on computers with specific hardware which would save a lot of boot time by skipping a lot of hardware checking steps.

Google emphasized that they would be pushing the manufacturers to develop notebooks with larger keypads and mousepads along with better display. Although, they did not gave any pricing hints for their Google Chrome OS, but said that the notebooks would be released as around the same prices as we see today.

If the speed of Google Chrome Browser is any indication to go by, topped by the live boot up time as Google showed earlier today, Google Chrome OS would be super fast as compared to other operating systems. The project head for Chome OS mentioned a 7 seconds Boot-up time, now that’s really fast.

chrome os vs rest

Google Chrome OS : Interesting Notes

  • Every application a web-application in Google Chrome OS : There are no conventional or traditional application in Chrome OS. All the applications are a web application, a url, a link.
  • It has been assumed that Google Chrome OS would be integrated with your Google Account, this would enable users to login to their computer using other netbooks which run Chrome OS.
  • Google Chrome browser would run faster on Google Chrome OS than on a Mac or Windows since Google has re-done the browser for its OS.
  • Everything Online : This is the thing which made head turns when Google first announced its Chrome OS plans earlier this year. Although, it is not clear as to what sorts of applications would be available on Chrome OS, but by the looks of it i guess it “only” suitable for people who are “online” round the clock. Every settings on your netbook, whether its notepad or wifi settings everything would be backed up in your Google Account.

Since everything is on the cloud, there are many concerns which were raised such as printer’s support and other hardware support. Google assured us that Google Chrome OS would definitely be able to print but would take a “more innovative approach’ for supporting printers.

As was announced earlier, Google said they were at present only focused on releasing the OS on netbooks, and depending on its success, they would also impart it to laptops and desktops.

Our Take

I personally like almost all the Google Products. Going by the information available so far on this new Chrome OS, i think it would be a real time saver for users who are Google savvy and use it for all the needs. If Google entirely links it with its Google Account then their might be some resistance by a section of users who are not using Google much, apart from searching. One more issue might be the security aspects, since all thing is done online using your Google Account, if by any chance the account gets hacked or you loose password or something, it can lead to disaster. I am sure security is main aspect at which guys over at Google would be looking at.

List of Useful Add-Ons For Google Chrome Using Bookmarklets

by Chrome Blog on January 4, 2009

As we all know that Google took Chrome out of beta almost a month back, but still there is a strong feeling that there is a long way to go for the browser if it has to compete with other browers such as Firefox.  With the lack of RSS Support features, lack of API’s for add-ons and plugins, and no official version of the browser for Mac and Linux, it would take time before users fully switch to Google Chrome.

Although Chrome’s lacking of such basic features, its lightweight surfing, speedy browsing and easy feel has attracted a lot of people to it. Everyday more and more users are starting to use Google Chrome, though we cant say how many are using Google Chrome as a standalone browser.

Last month Google had announced its plans to release Extensions and Plugins support for Google Chrome, shortly, unfortunately, no one knows when it is going to be released now that 1 month has passed. But till then, there ways to atleast simulate the use of browser extensions. This is done using bookmarklets which are small pieces of javascript code which one can easily add to Chrome’s bookmark toolbar.

Google Chrome Bookmarklets

We have listed some of the most handy bookmarklets for Chrome which many of the users would find beneficial. You might already see many of the bookmarklets being written about in our Google Chrome Forum. We had also developed the Google Chrome Toolbar using such Bookmarklets a while back and got about 75k hits to it already.

HOW TO USE: To use the bookmarklets mentioned below,  you just need to drag & drop the link onto the bookmarks bar of your Chrome Browser.

  • Share in Google Reader – Share the web page you are browsing using Google’s RSS Reader.
  • Note This in Google Reader – It lets you share the item while adding a note with it.
  • Stumble it – Stumble a web page that you liked.
  • Gmail This – Mail any page using Gmail. For Google Apps Mail, try this instead. (You will need to replace “yourdomain.com” with your own domain name).
  • Linkify - Make all plain text URL’s on a webpage into clickable hyperlinks.
  • Take Screenshot – Takes a screenshot using WebShotsPro.
  • Socialize – Submits a blog post from Google Chrome to more than 50 social bookmarking website with just a few clicks.

    Social Google Chrome

  • Google Pagerank – Check Pagerank of any Webpage by clicking on it. This is so far the best alternative to check PR of a site untill any Google Toolbar is lauched for Chrome.
  • Translate – Translate any webpage to English without needing to know the source language.
  • Technorati Rank – Check Technorati Rank, Blog Reactions and Authority of the website you are on.
  • Twitter now – Click on it to update your Twitter account. You will get a pop-up which lets you update your twitter status &check messages.
  • Alexa Rank – Check the alexa rank of the website you are on.
  • Tumblelog – Lets you quickly post to your tumblelog if you have a Tumblr Blog.
  • Dictionary – Look up words in the dictionary. If you are a fan of Thesaurus, then use this Thesaurus. Another, similar bookmarklet called Reference is also available.
  • Post to vi.sualize.us – Post your favorite pictures to the photo-sharing website vi.sualize.us.
  • Share on FriendFeed – Share a link in social media lifestreaming site FriendFeed.
  • Digg – Diggs a webpage.
  • Google Bookmark – Bookmarks a page using Google’s own Google Bookmarks service.
  • Delicious – Save a page to social bookmarking site delicious.
  • Adblock+ – Removes java, flash, background music and third-party iframes. It won’t render properly on this page for some reason, but you can grab it from the original site.

If you would like to see any additions to this list of Bookmarlets do let us know by leaving your valuable comments.

Chrome Extensions Coming Soon!

by Chrome Blog on December 4, 2008

The Chromium folk have published a document detailing information about the long awaited ability to extend Chrome with user selected Extensions/Addons like FireFox.

This is excellent news, feedback here at ChromePlugins.org points to many people not adopting Chrome as their default browser due to the lack of functionality. Also over 50,000 people have hit our Google Toolbar for Chrome page which enables people to replicate the Google Toolbar and many features of SEOQuake, a popular FireFox addon for web site owners which shows a “Google Baked” solution is needed.

The Chromium document went on to state:

“Chromium can’t be everything to all people.  People use web browsers in a variety of environments and for a wide variety of jobs.  Personal tastes and needs vary widely from one user to the next.  The feature needs of one person often conflict directly with those of another. 

Further, one of the design goals of Chromium is to have a minimal light-weight user interface, which itself conflicts with adding lots of features.
User-created extensions have been proposed to solve these problems:”

  • The addition of features that have specific or limited appeal (“that would be great as an extension”).
  • Users coming from other browsers who are used to certain extensions that they can’t live without.
  • Bundling partners who would like to add features to Chromium specific to their bundle.

A few points to note under the “Goals” section are as follows:

  • Web developers should be able to easily create Chromium extensions
  • Eventually, it should be possible to implement major chunks of Chromium itself as extensions.
  • We should not need to disable deployed extensions when we release new versions of Chromium.
  • Extensions should not be able to crash or hang the browser process.
  • We must be able to blacklist extensions across all Chromium installations
  • Extensions should work the same in Chromium as in Google Chrome.

One interesting point is Google being able to blacklist extensions across all installations, which indicates either the browser reporting it’s exact configuration back to HQ or Google being able to push out blacklist data preventing the extension from running. Also interesting is the ability to implement major chunks of Chrome as extensions themselves.

The following lists some types of extensions that Chrome/Chromium would like to eventually support:

  • Bookmarking/navigation tools: Delicious Toolbar, Stumbleupon, web-based history, new tab page clipboard accelerators
  • Content enhancements: Skype extension (clickable phone numbers), RealPlayer extension (save video), Autolink (generic microformat data – addresses, phone numbers, etc.)
  • Content filtering: Adblock, Flashblock, Privacy control, Parental control
  • Download helpers: video helpers, download accelerators, DownThemAll, FlashGot
  • Features: ForecastFox, FoxyTunes, Web Of Trust, GooglePreview, BugMeNot

Yes you read correctly, Adblock which is something many people were concerned about with Google relying heavily on advertising revenue that Chrome wouldn’t allow/support this. Fear no longer, it’s on the drawing board.. But will Google allow blocking of other ads, but “nuke” extensions that block Adsense?

I don’t think so, if someone goes out of their way to block ads with extensions there’s a damn good chance they won’t click on them anyway so showing ads to these people will effectively just inflate impressions and skew stats.

They also go on to say “Extensions will run in their own origin”  meaning in their own process and separate from web content. This means installing, uninstalling or disabling extensions will not require a browser restart like the current FireFox system which is good news. Also they state it will be a simple 2 click affair, one click to download the extension and one to confirm the install via a dialogue box.

Updates:

“Similar to Google Chrome, it is important for security that extensions be able to silently update. This should be a capability that is present for all extensions by default, not something the author has to plan for.”

So given the fact extensions can be installed without a browser restart, it appears security updates will be done silently in the background. Also due to the goal of Chrome version upgrades not impacting extensions, we should be virtually free of compatibility issues which leave us without our favorite extension while the author upgrades it.

So what’s next in the evolution of Chrome and Extensions?

“Our first milestone will be to implement a functioning extension system that can support content scripts. The majority of the work will be the infrastructure, including:”

  • packaging and signing
  • installation
  • autoupdate
  • management and removal
  • blacklisting
  • web service

“Once we have content scripts working, we can move on to additional types of extensibility like toolbars, sidebars, etc.”

Considering the latest Chromium build has Greasemonkey implementation, the infrastructure points listed above are no doubt being fine tuned as we speak. After that is polished, i’d say the next big step forwards will be Chrome users sporting a shiny new Google Toolbar.
