There are a lot of reviews of 2008 and predictions for 2009 when we step in the New Year. That Google released its own browser Google Chrome ranks in the top 10 software news in 2008, and some experts predicts that Google Chrome will take up a market share of 10%~15% in 2009. Google Chrome is great, but it is not easy to change old routines and make users switch from their current browsers. This prediction will come true or not? We will keep an eye on it.

Google Chrome is a wonderful browser with a simple and clean user interface. It is quite different form IE 8 and FireFox 3. Based on the features of Google Chrome, can it win the browser war in 2009? We will review the special features of Google Chrome. And I have made a demo with DemoCreator to show these features.

One box for everything:

The address bar is also the search box. And it automatically suggests related queries and popular websites based on your input. It is a multifunctional box.

New tab page:

This is not a blank page. It shows us the Links to websites you visit the most, recently closed tabs, and recent bookmarks. It is quite useful for me to find the most visited websites.

Application shortcuts:

This feature enables users to create an easy entry for the special website service.

Dynamic tabs:

For better experience, you can change the tabs position as you want them to be. And Chrome also allows dragging tabs apart, to create separate windows.

Crash control:

If a page breaks in Chrome, it won't take the browser with it, so although you will have to reopen that crashed tab or window, you won't have lost anything else you are doing in other tabs or windows.

Incognito mode:

If you don't want pages you visit to show up in your web history, just choose incognito mode for private browsing. It can protect your privacy.

Safe browsing:

Google Chrome warns you if you're about to visit a suspected phishing, malware or otherwise unsafe website. I was supposed to show you this feature in the demo, but I could not find a sample website like this for a test.

Instant bookmarks:

Chrome simplifies the process of bookmark adding. Just click the star icon at the left edge of the address bar and you have got it done.

Importing settings:

It is easy for you to import your browsing history, saved websites, and passwords from your default browser to Chrome. It reduces the troubles if you switch to Chrome from Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Simpler downloads:

When you download a file from a website, you can your download's status at the bottom of your current window where you can monitor the progress of your downloading file.

There is a new and innovative browser choice for users. Google Chrome does deserve a try. To make some software guide video or website demo, DemoCreator is available.
