What is Google Chrome?:
Because Google is a web-based company that designs web-based applications, they decided to develop their own web browser from the ground up to work more efficiently, productively, and securely than with current browsers such as Internet Explorer and Firefox.
Google Chrome runs each instance separately. Malware or issues in one tab can not affect other open browser instances, and the browser is unable to write to or modify the operating system in any way- protecting your PC from attack.
The Incognito mode can also be useful when browsing on public systems like library or school PC's. With Incognito the sites you open and files you download are not logged in the browser history and all new cookies are removed when the session closes.
Google Chrome compares the information provided in the certificate with the actual server being connected to and alerts you if the information doesn't jive. If Chrome detects that the address specified in the certificate and the actual server you connect to are not the same, it issues this warning "'This is probably not the site you are looking for!"
Vulnerabilities and Flaws:
Chrome was quickly discovered to be vulnerable to a 'carpet-bombing' flaw originally identified in Apple's Safari browser. A few days later it was found to have a buffer overflow flaw that could also be exploited for malicious attacks.
Chrome does have a variety of innovative features and a unique interface that many users have quickly come to prfer over Internet Explorer and Firefox. Many users also report that it is faster at loading pages than other web browsers. The additional security controls should prove valuable in helping you surf the Web safely. Google Chrome is definitely worth taking a look at.
