The minor updates made Google Chrome a great browser

by logesh on October 6, 2010

I like many things from Google Chrome, but perhaps most of all I like the fact that Google is not putting a high value on the major versions, as Mozilla does. The guys from Mozilla are bringing improvements only through their major versions (like 3, 4) and rarely by a minor update. That is, in Firefox, you have to wait a year or more before you see something new.

Google, on the other hand, is continuously improving its browser. I refer here to the dev version, not the stable. Simply, after made a minor update to a newer version 6.0.346 or 6.0.469 you kindly notice something different.

For example, last week, I noticed that:

– Inactive tabs whose pages are automatically refreshing (like Google Reader or Hootsuite) shows a slight glow when new content is available;

– Downloads progress from the taskbar icon is displayed (if the download bar close)

The essence is that the Chrome is constantly working, that men beat their heads and come with innovations or features inspired from the other browsers. Major versions, such Chrome 7 which recently appeared on the dev channel, come not only bring more stability and some less visible changes.

Mozilla should have learned from this story. They complain that users do not rush to move to new versions. If it would solve the problem of compatibility of extensions and do a “silent update” how Chrome does, users would always have the latest versions and the latest security patches.

Okay, how the fuck do I turn off the inactive tab refreshing. When on a site like Deviantart it refreshes all the tabs I open. I am the type of internet addicted poweruser who has close to 100 tabs open. At least 25 of them are going to be Deviantart.

Chrome rocks my world. I do have one issue though. Chrome Sync is horribly broken, even in beta Chrome. It has destroyed many users bookmarks, flooding their GoogleDocs with bookmark folders, and in general is something Google should truly be ashamed of. I finally gave up trying to use Chrome Sync, and just used Xmarks, but I wish Chrome Sync were functional. It’s rubbish and it makes me really angry at Google for not giving a crap about their users. Google has an ever-growing list of bugs that they don’t even bother implementing a work-around, they just say “we are aware of your complaints.” Other than that, I do use a lot of Google features, and love them when they work!
