New Web Browser from Google ; ChromeWednesday, September 03, 2008
Chrome is a smart, innovative browser that, in many common scenarios, will make using the Web faster, easier, and less frustrating.
I have down loaded the program and started testing it. So far the speed is okay and ease of use.

Tabs which were a key innovation in Firefox have been innovated further on Google Chrome by putting them on top. Goodger noted that Google thinks of tabs like title bars for web pages and apps. By placing them on top they become more primary and usable. Instead of starting with a blank screen, the default new tab page will show the users most viewed pages and an search boxes for recently used search engines. Google Chrome does not discriminate against other search engines and will enable users to use whatever search engine they choose.
The Incognito window, which is Google Chrome's privacy mode, is also a key feature that Goodger explained was meant to keep stuff off a users computer so sites won't appear in history and cookies aren't saved.
