Google Chrome is a web browser developed by Google, compiled based on open source components such as the WebKit rendering engine and application development structure.
What is Google Chrome?
Chrome is the first and most preferred browser on the Internet and currently has a 65.89% market share, according to Statcounter, and is available for free.
The name of the browser is derived from the term used for the graphical user interface frame.
Chromium is the free software project behind Google Chrome. The partial project by Google is covered by the BSD use license. Other parts of the project are subject to various permitted open source licenses, including MIT License, Ms-PL, and triple MPL/GPL/LGPL license.
The main purpose of this project is to provide a browser that provides greater stability, speed, and security, and at the same time to provide a simple and efficient user interface.
Chromium is a basic browser with the same design features of Chrome, but with a different logo and without the commercial and technical support of Google.
The first beta version of the Chromium browser was released on September 2, 2008. Later, version 1.0 of the browser was released to the public on December 11, 2008.
Chromium browser is available in more than 50 languages for Microsoft Windows platforms.
Chrome browser was officially released on September 2, 2008. It was a beta version for Microsoft Windows in 43 languages and was rapidly approaching 1% of the browser market.
On September 2, Google was licensed for all content transferred via the Chrome browser, which focused on some of the terms of service for the first beta release.
However, the same terms and conditions of Google were mistakenly included in the terms of service section.
Google said that the text was accidentally received from other products and added to the service section on the same day, and that section was also removed.
As a result, there were concerns about whether the browser was transmitting information to Google, and if so, what kind of information was sent.
Security and Stability
Among the primary goals of designing the browser was to further improve the security, speed, and stability offered by existing browsers.
Important changes have also been made to the user interface. Chrome was created from 26 different Google code libraries and third-party software such as Netscape.
Blacklist and Warning
Chrome periodically downloads updates from two blacklists and alerts users when they try to visit a dangerous content page.
This service is also available to third parties through a free public API called the Google Safe Browsing API.
Process Isolation (Protected Area)
The development team responsible for Gears was thinking of creating a multi-threaded browser, and Chrome implemented this concept with a multi-processor architecture similar to the feature used by Internet Explorer.
Thanks to the process isolation, a separate process is assigned to each task, such as tabs and plugins.
Chrome includes a private browsing mode that allows you to browse the Internet with full privacy because it doesn’t record any activity and deletes cookies used in temporary files.
So they reported that Chrome performed much faster than its competitors, including Safari, Firefox, Internet Explorer.
The user interface provides convenience to the user with go back, go forward, reload the page, go and cancel buttons. The options are similar to the Safari browser, and the location of the features is the same as in older Internet Explorer browsers.
The window design is based on the native theme of Windows Vista. It has a multipurpose address bar with autocomplete search features, search suggestions.
The basic functions of Chrome can be improved through its extensions. Chrome has proven to be a browser that tries to support different standards on the web.
