Browser Update

Chrome for your 10-year birthday: 4 Google Chrome fixes Dependent on how you rank, Google Chrome was probably 10 years old on Saturday (the centenary of its creation unintentionally became known in 2008) or Sunday (the centenary of the date on which Google formally released it). Instead of setting the landmark on a week-end or workweek, Google decided to do it today. Namely by publishing a useful update for the browser, which was initially led by a great programmer called Sundar Pichai and then became one of Google's most beloved and important tools.

Chromium has been so omnipresent and powerful for so long that it's hard to ignore how slippery, slender and invigorating it felt when it hit the shelves. It' s hard to believe that another browser would turn up and present as much of a fundamental shift as Chrome did in 2008 - but on the other hand, few outside of Google would have said that the business had the ability to transform the browser industry as much as Chrome.
