Googles new browser, it's clean and simple.

Each tab is its own process meaning if one fails it wont take all of them down with it.

Did you know that when you download Google's new Chrome browser, you agree that any "content" you "submit, post or display" using the service — whether you own its copyright or not — gives Google a "perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free, and non-exclusive license to reproduce, adapt, modify, translate, publish, publicly perform, publicly display and distribute" it? Google's ambitions for Chrome are even larger than we thought; by the letter of this license, Google will own all information that flows through its browser.

Um, no. It's full, and I mean BLOODY FULL of security holes. It tries to steal your content, and has nothing to protect you on the web.

Overall fail browser.

Chrome periodically downloads updates of two blacklists (one for phishing and one for malware) and warns users when they attempt to visit a harmful site. This service is also made available for use by others via a free public API called "Google Safe Browsing API". In the process of maintaining these blacklists, Google also notifies the owners of listed sites who may not be aware of the presence of the harmful software.[9]


Quote:
Each tab in Chrome is sandboxed into its own process to "prevent malware from installing itself" or "using what happens in one tab to affect what happens in another". Following the principle of least privilege, each process is stripped of its rights and can compute but can not write files or read from sensitive areas (e.g. documents, desktop)—this is similar to "Protected Mode" that is used by Internet Explorer 7 on Windows Vista. The Sandbox Team is said to have "taken this existing process boundary and made it into a jail";[11] for example malicious software running in one tab is unable to sniff credit card numbers, interact with the mouse or tell "Windows to run an executable on start-up" and will be terminated when the tab is closed. This enforces a simple computer security model whereby there are two levels of multilevel security (user and sandbox) and the sandbox can only respond to communication requests initiated by the user.[9]


Quote:
Plugins such as Adobe Flash Player are typically not standardised and as such cannot be sandboxed like tabs. These often need to run at or above the security level of the browser itself. To reduce exposure to attack, plugins are run in separate processes that communicate with the renderer, itself operating at "very low privileges" in dedicated per-tab processes. Plugins will need to be modified to operate within this software architecture while following the principle of least privilege.[9]


Quote:
Chrome supports the Netscape Plugin Application Programming Interface (NPAPI),[12][13] but does not support the embedding of ActiveX controls.[13] Also, Chrome does not have an extension system such as Mozilla-compatible *.xpi cross-platform extension architecture[14] and thus XPI-based extensions such as AdBlock and GreaseMonkey can not be adapted to Chrome.[15]

And, that's only two days after release, meaning any small security flaws will be sorted out.

The passage in question was inherited from the general Google terms of service. The Register summarized the passage as "Your copyright goes up in smoke." Google responded to this criticism by stating that the language used was borrowed from other products, and would be removed. They also stated that the change would "apply retroactively to all users who have downloaded Google Chrome."
The passage in question has since been removed from the Terms of Service.

Well if you don't believe wikipedia, view the reference links to websites that aren't edited by anyone :/

Even tho there isn't any reason not to accept what's on Wikipedia when they source most everything, and have moderators to fix or delete false pages.

I like it simply because it breaks the standard of most browsers. With Google Chrome, they've focused on todays web standards and computing, and pull out key ideas on how to make a better web browser. Being that this is the first version, it's almost guaranteed to have flaws, just like many other programs. Just sit back and wait. It'll likely get better.
