Google Chrome First Look at Google’s New Browser

UPDATE: Google Chrome is now live for Windows users.

Just as soon as Google makes Google Chrome available, I’ll take a look and let you know my thoughts on Google entering the browser space. In the meantime, here’s a screenshot (floating around the blogosphere) so you know what it will look like.

Google Video for Google Apps; YouTube in a Suit

Google didn’t intend to launch Google Chrome today–honestly, the news leaked and so it was forced to bring forward the launch. This leaves Google’s planned launched of Google Video for Google Apps sitting in the shadows.

If, like me, you’re a Google Apps Premier Edition user, you can today enable Google Video sharing for your organization. What’s it for?

  • share videos with individuals, groups, or the entire organization
  • add descriptions and tags
  • embed videos in any internal web page, including Google Sites

Users across your Google Apps group will enjoy features such as:

  • search for any video to which they have access
  • view high-quality video from popular browsers (including Safari on iPhone)
  • submit ratings, comments and additional tags

Two Years After Denying its Existence, Google Launching “Chrome” Web Browser

UPDATE: Google Chrome is now live.

Back in June 2006, we reported Google’s attempt to defuse any rumors that it was working on a Google web browser. Two years later, rumors resurfaced that Google was indeed working on a web browser based on the WebKit framework–which is also used by Apple’s Safari browser.

Low-and-behold, after accidentally revealing details in a cartoon, Google has today confirmed that a Gbrowser will be launched tomorrow and named Google Chrome.

On the surface, we designed a browser window that is streamlined and simple. To most people, it isn’t the browser that matters. It’s only a tool to run the important stuff — the pages, sites and applications that make up the web. Like the classic Google homepage, Google Chrome is clean and fast. It gets out of your way and gets you where you want to go.
