>>For how much the web has evolved, browsers,
as a platform, haven’t evolved that much. What we are trying to do with Chrome is to
make sure the browsers are really evolving along with the web, so the web can evolve
to the next level.>>Browsers need to get better because they
were designed for an era where web pages were doing completely different things.>>Today, most of what we use on a day-to-day
basis are applications and not web pages.>>People are watching videos.
They’re uploading videos. They’re chatting with each other.
They’re playing games on the web. All of these things certainly never existed
back when the first browsers were created, when the first web was created.>>Wouldn’t it be great to start from scratch
and design something based on the needs of today’s applications and today’s webmasters. [pause] When we set off to build Google Chrome, we
wanted to make sure that we improve browsers along the lines of speed, security and stability.
Speed is always very important at Google, and we wanted to make sure that Chrome executes
as fast as possible, everything from the Javascript engine to the renderer.>>We started a project called V8, which was
designed to allow Javascript to execute really fast.
Javascript is the language that is used everywhere on the web.
It was performing to slow, so we decided to make it faster.
The team that worked on that did an amazing job.
We were all stunned by how fast that works.>>We saw a big opportunity to try to take
a fresh start. And to use a different rendering Web Kit is
something that we spent a long time evaluating. Web Kit is the underlying rendering engine
for Chrome, because it’s very fast. It’s very lightweight, it’s very small and
easy to maintain code base. [pause]>>So we’ve worked really hard to keep the
browser very fast– especially when it’s accessing these very powerful sites– and also to keep
it very stable. For instance, if you’re doing something…
if you’re playing a game in one browser tab and it suddenly slows down a lot because,
you know, suddenly you have 58 monsters on the screen you have to kill, you’re next tab
over, that’s running your email, isn’t going to be slowed down by that.>>And so we came up with this system whereby
each web app would be run in its own environment, isolated from the others.
And this allowed us to make them more robust.>>Other browsers, what might happen is the
entire browser would crash. So you lose your online banking session.
You lose the document that you were editing. You lose everything.
In Google Chrome, if one tab goes down the other tabs will stay up. [pause]>>So, in building Chrome we were very concerned
about security. One of the things that gives us a lot of mileage
is the multi-process architecture of Chrome. So each renderer runs in a separate process
on your computer. And that means that they’re isolated from
each other, so that one can’t talk to the other and steal information.>>So what we do is we essentially give each
web page its own little playground, its own sandbox.
So you’ve got your online banking running on one tab.
You’ve got your search results, your Gmail, in another tab.
The two can’t talk to each other. And if something bad happens in one sandbox–
you know, it’s, like, maybe there’s a giant flood or it’s about the rain– the other sandbox
is going to stay nice and dry, nice and happy. Your tab is going to be isolated from the
other tabs. [pause]>>In an engineering and browser sense, Chrome
is the… is the user interface itself. It’s the stuff around the outside of the window,
the buttons, the toolbars, all that kind of stuff.
And, so, hand in hand with that was this design philosophy that we took, which was we wanted
to maximize content and minimize Chrome.>>In designing Chrome, we felt that we had
to make it invisible. People shouldn’t have to think about Google
Chrome. People should have to think about their applications.>>And in this process, we have taken a very
minimalistic approach, just like google.com. You know, if you think of the white page in
google.com, we tried to do the same with the browser.>>From top to bottom we designed the interface
to make sure it was as efficient and clean as possible.
We argued over every single pixel in the chrome of Chrome to make sure that there was nothing
wasted. [pause]>>So Google Chrome is a fully open-source
browser, right? So we want to release this in a way in which
others adopt good ideas from us– like we want to adopt good ideas from other folks–
and help the browser get better.>>People should be able to dig into that.
People should be able to learn from it, and people should be able to contribute.>>We really want the work that we do to,
sort of, raise the bar for browsers. We want to push browsers further.
We want to make the capabilities better. We want to be able to allow for better web
applications to be delivered.>>Even if Google Chrome itself isn’t used
by everyone on the web, as long as it makes the web better we’ve achieved our goal.

    @tpiom You do realize you can create as many " branching off" folders " INSIDE each folder on your chrome books marks by right? personally i think that is a better option than multirow bookmarks bars. shit as much political, technological, cooking, and dog saved webpages i have. my screen would be cut LITERALLY IN HALF ( 22" 16:10 aspect ratio monitor here). and ah..I dont want that. I want as much screen view realestate as possible. that's why i have the extensions i have. cheers

    @FunnyAmey IE hasn't "sucked" since the release of IE8. In fact, it's probably the second fastest browser after Chrome now. If you ask me, in today's web environment it's Firefox that sucks. It's the slowest and clunkiest browser of the bunch and while it once had a huge extension library going for it Chrome now has just as many. IE isn't the best browser, but it certainly doesn't "suck" anymore.

    @mebossyounothing There is no spyware in Google Chrome. They don't obtain any personally identifiable information either. All they do is keep track of your searches in order to provide you with more accurate results/suggestions in future and more appropriate ads. You are not being "spied on" and if you're seriously paranoid about that you should get the hell of the web. Privacy doesn't exist on the internet. Just don't be an idiot and overshare.

    Open 50 tabs and see how slow it would become. If someone browses with less than 10 tabs open, then Chrome is fast, otherwise I think Opera is the fastest browser.
