Chrome browser

A very popular Web browser from Google that was introduced for Windows in 2008 and for the Mac and Linux in 2009. Based on code from the open source Chromium project, Chrome made searching simpler by integrating the URL address bar and Google search box into one input field called the "Omnibox." Also included is a display of "most visited pages" when a new tab is opened. The memory usage for each tab can be viewed, and misbehaving tabs can be closed with Chrome's equivalent to a task manager function.

In "Incognito" mode, users visit websites without transmitting any cookies stored in their computers, and incoming cookies will be deleted at the end of the session. Users are also warned about Web pages that exhibit signs of malware or phishing. See Chrome OS, Chromebook and Chromium.
