Chrome browser

A Web browser from Google introduced for Windows in 2008 and for Mac and Linux in 2009. The most popular browser worldwide as of 2019 and based on code from the open source Chromium project, Chrome made searching simpler by integrating the URL address bar and 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.


Integrated Address and Search
Although subsequent Omniboxes produce slightly different results, this was the first. Typing the word "jabber" into Chrome gave the user options to go to websites or search for jabber words.
