Chrome is a Google-developed Web browser. It includes innovative features like the "Omnibox" that combines search and Web addresses into a single box to save time. It also loads pages faster and behaves better than many browsers, thanks to it's multi-threaded approach to memory use.

Unfortunately Chrome is too new to have a high market share or a lot of developer support. Websites weren't designed to be Chrome optimized, so some of them may not work well.
