You can get it for Windows from here. Mac and Linux versions are on the way. Here are the key highlights:
- It’s based on Webkit. Just like Safari from Apple.
- Each tab runs as own process. That means that one crash doesn’t take down the entire browser and each tab is isolated.
- It has Private Browsing. A.K.A. “Stealth Browsing” or “Porn Mode”
- The Browser is fully sandboxed so that exploits can’t take over your PC.
Give it a try and leave a comment telling us what you think of it.
UPDATE: I just installed it. It’s freaking fast! Plus it imported all my Firefox stuff with ease. Now if I can figure out how to get my client side certificates working, I’ll start using it as my default browser to see how it really performs.
UPDATE #2: Be sure you read the fine print before you install Chrome.
UPDATE #3: Some other things I’ve noted:
- The browser comes with its own task manager that allows you to kill individual tabs and even individual flash elements. Plus it will show you detailed memory usage.
- I can’t get it to use imported certificates so that I can access secure websites. Weird. I’ll spend some more time playing with it to see if I can get it to work. I’m sure it’s just user error.
