Happy birthday Chrome ... Its 4 years.


Its 4 years ...
Even though Google's Chief Executive Eric Schmidt was opposing like anything , when the cofounders Sergey Brin and Larry Page thought of having a Google's own browser. They started by hiring several Mozilla Firefox developers. Eventhough Mozilla was not officially a Google browser, it grows in such a way as official Google borwser.After seeing a demo version of Chrome , Eric Schmidt  supported the Google's new product. 

The initial version was for Microsoft Windows and the beta released on September 2, 2008 . The same month large portion of Chrome's source code released as an open source project called Chromium, and that was one of the greatest success of Chrome. During the initial release it self it was for 43 languages. The same year Chrome gained the about 1% usage share. After three months , on January 2009, they  released a versions of Chrome for Mac OS X and Linux. There were lot of development happend on 2009 and 2010 , and on  May 25, 2010 the first stable release came to live. Chrome was a assembled from 25 different code libraries from different vendors and number of other open-source projects. 
The major features are, more secure, fast , stable and JavaScript processing speed. So far no security vulnerabilities in Chrome had been successfully exploited. The private browsing feature called Incognito mode was one of the nice feature normally like computer experts , which prevents the browser from permanently storing any history information or cookies from the websites visited. Compartively chrome is much faster than any other browser, but the resource utilization is much more that all other broweser, but it dosent matters as all the computer are having high memory speed. These days they are working on high resolution Retina support, which they can compete to Apples next generation
